Meet Our Caregivers: Well Beyond Ordinary
At Encore, our caregivers are more than just expert medical professionals who deliver skilled healthcare at every touchpoint. They are the backbone of our care community, leading with their hearts and helping our residents live life to the fullest.

Whether it’s a listening ear or a well-done knock-knock joke, our caregivers bring their unique personalities to the Encore community, offering residents an all-around delightful experience. Our caregivers are dedicated to learning meaningful details about each resident to build trusted relationships, which help them to better understand residents’ daily and long-term wants and needs. This practice of personalized care makes it easier, and more enjoyable, for our residents to reach the goals they set for themselves.
