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 each and 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 each and every one of the Ross Care Center Family.

In my down time I enjoy basketball, cooking and reading.

Nixon Conserve

Nixon Conserve
Director of Nursing Services

Working in healthcare has been a big part of my life for more than 20 years. I started working as a CNA during College and graduated with a degree in Environmental Sciences.

As I continued to work as a lead Unit Clerk in a SNF and being privy to the policies and procedures and how it pertains to Nursing, I decided to become an RN and attend Beth Israel Nursing School. All the rigorous training paid off and after graduating, and pursuing my BSN, I became a Charge Nurse at a Nursing Home in Westchester.

I went up the ranks from being a Nurse Manager in a sub acute unit, to ADNS and onto my current position as DNS, here at Ross Healthcare.

One of the things that stands out for me here is the team spirit and approach here at Ross, both with all leadership and the dedicated nursing staff. With one goal in mind, which is to ensure the best care possible for all residents, makes working here worth it.

In my little spare time, I am an avid sports enthusiast, especially when it comes to Football and Volleyball.

Director of Marketing

I began my career in healthcare administration at Stonehill College where I obtained a Bachelor’s degree and learned the skills I need to succeed not only in the field as a whole, but here at Ross as well. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Health Administration at Stony Brook University.

Through community outreach I hope to directly impact and improve the lives of others by welcoming them into the Ross family. I look forward to seeing the residents every day and I am so lucky to work in such a compassionate and welcoming environment!

In my spare time I love going to the beach, spending time with my friends and family, shopping, and exploring nature trails!

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!


Elaine Terrana
Director of Social Work

I fell in love with the geriatric population while employed as a receptionist in a nursing home during college. After obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, I was fortunate to land a social work position in a nursing home in my hometown of Niceville, Florida, where I worked for a few years before accepting a position with Hospice. After moving to New York and raising a family, I obtained my Masters of Social Work from Simmons University and became credentialed as a Licensed Master of Social Work.

It has been an honor to continue my career at Ross Center for Health and Rehabilitation as the Director of Social Work for the last 2 years and I am privileged to play a role in our residents’ and patients’ journey. Their unique stories of love, struggle, hope and perseverance never cease to amaze me. I value our warm, home-like atmosphere at Ross and am fortunate to work with such a dedicated team of colleagues.

In my pastime, I enjoy playing tennis, reading and cheering my boys on from the sidelines at their lacrosse games.

Chief Dietician

I have been a Chief Dietitian for most of my career and have been a Registered Dietitian for over 30 years. Ross Nursing and Rehab has been my home for a little over 2 years. What I like most about my job is that there is a genuine spirit of cooperation and shared goals around helping the residents and each other. My favorite hobbies are cooking, baking and skiing as they help me feel happier and more relaxed.

Shannon Daniele

Shannon Daniele, CTRS
Director of Recreation Therapy

I began my Recreational Therapy career at St Joseph College, with countless hours of volunteerism and internships within nursing homes. I then graduated with my bachelors of science in Recreational Therapy with a minor in Psychology and a certificate in Geriatrics. After becoming nationally certified I worked as a Certified Recreational Therapist within long term care settings. I have had the honor to work here and implement my accrued skills as the Director of Recreational Therapy for a little over two years.

What I love most about my job is knowing that I directly impact a resident’s quality of life on a daily basis. I enjoy working creatively to adapt and overcome challenges to make leisure time pursuits a possibility for everyone.

A few of my favorite pastimes include crocheting, cooking and walking my dog.
