Meet The Team

Meet Our Caregivers: Well Beyond Ordinary
At Encore at West Little Rock, 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 healing with their hands.

Whether it’s a shoulder to cry on or endless jokes, our caregivers each bring their unique personality to the community, offering residents a well-rounded human experience. They’re dedicated to learning about each resident and building a trusted relationship to better understand their daily and long-term wants and needs. This practice of personalized care makes it easier to reach the goals our residents set for themselves.
