Meet The Team

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 catering to our resident’s every request and every need.

Whether it’s participating in an arts and crafts project or dancing, our caregivers bring their unique personalities to the Encore community, offering residents an all-around charming experience.


Our caregivers take the time to learn meaningful details about each resident, creating a true bonding experience. We take the time to truly understand what makes our residents light up. Trusted relationships with residents blossom into friendships. Whether it’s bringing them tea in the afternoon, reading them a book, or telling a good joke, we go to great lengths to keep our residents smiling. This philosophy of personalized care makes it easier and more enjoyable for our residents to reach the goals they set for themselves.

Our Team



Cory Gatte



With a heart of gold and commitment to providing excellent care to Encore’s   residents, Cory Gatte is a ray of sunshine for residents, their families, and other caregivers. He is eager to please and brings positivity to every aspect of our community, from joining group activities to visiting with residents.


Our residents love Cory so much that when they are discharged to go back home, they often say they will miss the caring community they temporarily called home.


In addition to being a Licensed Nursing Facility Administrator in Louisiana, Cory has an accounting degree, but found himself drawn to the long-term care industry. With 12 years of senior care experience, he has found his true calling at Encore. Cory is an active member of the Crowley Chamber of Commerce, and serves on two boards, including the Leadership Excel and the LSUE Foundation.



Cathy Gros, RN

Director of Nursing


Cathy Gros gives residents the best quality of life possible through personalized care. She allows family members of residents to rest easy at night knowing they are in the best care possible. Cathy’s compassionate and loyal nature makes her a valuable asset to our team.


Cathy brings 18 years of experience working as a nurse and four years of long-term care experience to Encore. She brings a wealth of knowledge to our team with a strong background in healthcare working as as a nurse manager, nurse liaison, and in diabetes education and sales. Cathy has also contributed to two successful deficiency-free state surveys.



Angelique Credeur

Community Outreach/Admissions Coordinator


Angelique Credeur spends her time at Encore streamlining communication within the communities and making days brighter for residents. When she’s not encouraging awareness and education on Alzheimer’s disease, she acts as a wealth of information on many other healthcare topics for residents, families, and the Encore community.


While Angelique is used to hearing from residents that she’s “a lifesaver,” she continues to be a delight for anyone who crosses her path. With nearly 10 years of experience in long-term care, Angelique is a valuable asset to the Encore team. As a former trainer and entrepreneur in the women’s fitness industry, she brings extensive knowledge on wellness coaching and nutrition.


Angelique has been awarded Social Worker of the Year at Southwind Healthcare and Rehab. She is an active member of the Crowley Chamber of Commerce for 14 years and currently serves on the board. Through her membership in the Crowley Rotary Club and fundraising efforts for the Alzheimer’s Association, she supports the community on many levels.
