As the CFO for Ross Care Center I feel privileged and blessed to have personal relationships with my residents. It means so much to me to connect with every one of them at a personal level.

My previous years of experience have been in the financial side of the LTC industry and I can’t be happier to have left the Computer to connect with every one of the Ross Care Center Family.

In my downtime, I enjoy basketball, cooking and reading.

Michael Salvato

Director of Admissions

I began my career at Ross as a concierge in 2019. I have developed a great love and respect for our residents over the years, especially during the pandemic. They truly touch my heart and I am honored to be a part of their lives. The atmosphere here is so welcoming and comforting, I consider Ross a home, rather than a workplace. I spend much of my spare time with my grandmother, mother, and niece. I have a strong passion for boxing, cooking, and reading. I never pictured myself in the healthcare field, but I absolutely love it!

Lexi Avignone

Director of Recreation Therapy

After completing my course work at SUNY Cortland, I began my professional development in Recreational therapy as an intern at the Long Island State Veterans Home. I later became a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist and worked in memory care for multiple years at Gurwin Jewish Nursing. I have a genuine love and understanding of the geriatric population and was ready to advance my career.

I am so grateful for the opportunity Ross has provided me as Director of Recreational Therapy. I hope to implement new ideas and special programs for our facility to engage and excite our residents and staff. If you see me around, you may also see my dog Lyla who loves to visit!

I spend my free time with Family, Painting and Walking!

I have been blessed to work in Human Resources for over 13 years. I’m so excited and grateful for the opportunity to work with the Ross family as the Director of Human Resources. Over the years I have developed my skills supporting large Long Term Care and Skilled Nursing Facilities. It is my belief that open communication and teamwork create positive work environments. It is my desire to bring that positivity and cohesiveness to the HR department.  Maintaining a positive attitude, open door policy  and a welcoming atmosphere has proven to create a warm, enriching work environment.  I am looking forward to working with the Ross Care Family and thrilled to be a part of the team!In my down time I enjoy the beach, spending time with my loved ones, and traveling.
