Our Hair Stylist

Nancy Penrose

You would think after doing hair for 47 years you would call it quits! Not for Nancy – She absolutely loves her seniors at Anthem Senior Living and they look forward to the awesome job she does every week. Nancy services many seniors at their respective assisted living homes, but enjoys coming to ASL not only because of the residents but because it’s a welcoming environment. It’s clean, smells good and there is a positive energy in the air that you can sense when you walk in the door.

Our Entertainment and Activities Director

Valerie Rolando

Just about 7 years ago, we were lucky enough to bring Valerie (and her husband Anthony) in as our music doctors! Just about every they would perform relevant and timeless pieces of music that all the residents would embrace and sing along to! The benefit is measurable and the joy it brings to our seniors lives is priceless! Valerie now also is in charge of our weekly aerobics class, weekly bingo (with prizes) and then every week is in charge of our flower shop. This is where each residents part-takes in making a floral arrangement for their room. It’s the little things in life that mean the most!

Our Massage Therapist

Steffanie Fasbinder

Naturally, Steffanie is just about the most favored person at Anthem Senior Living. She brings to the table many years of experience as a massage therapist but it’s the passion and love for seniors that set her apart! Seniors recognize her love through her gentle touch and meaningful conversations. Steffanie comes out on a weekly basis everyone just loves her.

Our Manager & Owner

Sam Ile

Sam is an individual who has the right heart for this industry. Known in Anthem but it’s residents and business owners for a genuine and REAL person. From the very early age of 14, Sam started as an activity director in Assisted Living. His passion for the elderly stemmed from his up-brining in a large European family. His advocacy for seniors is unparalleled and his charisma is made evident the moment you witness him interacting with the seniors. Sam always had a passion for people although he graduated college at the age of 19 with a technical degree. Anthem Senior Living was the first Assisted Living Facility in Anthem. Purchased in 2001 and started by Sam’s family, Anthem came to love and appreciate the services ASL provided. In 2003 Sam purchased and took over the business and in his way made it into the sanctuary it is today. Over the years many Assisted Living Homes came and went in Anthem… most of them all stemmed from Anthem Senior Living. Sam attributes his success to Loving People and Loving God!
