Meet the Owner
I, Ana I. Randolph, am the administrator of Analine, Inc DBA Sender Retreat Adult Activity Center in Deland, FL since November 2002. I have been in the healthcare profession for over 30 years. I have served 25 of those years in Volusia County. I am a registered dietitian through the American Dietetic Association. I have gained extensive experience with the geriatric community by working with my husband, Dr. Andrew J. Randolph, who is a physician in internal medicine. Internal Medicine primarily deals with the geriatric community, 60 years and older, as well as younger adults. Through this experience I have dealt with many health concerns among older adults, including those with Alzheimer ’s disease. I like many baby boomers took care of my elderly mother.
This led me to acquire an assisted living facility, which I owned and administered for four years. My elderly
mother’s health deteriorated in my 4th year of ownership, I sold it in order to care for my mother in her last year of her life.
