RYE — Sanctuary Care at Rye has named Angela Pelletier the memory care residence's new executive director.
Pelletier will be responsible for all aspects of the operations of Sanctuary Care's 56-bed residence in Rye under the direction of WoodBine Senior Living, a regionally focused management company with experience in New Hampshire. Pelletier has more than 22 years of experience in the senior living industry in various capacities and is one of the most highly recruited executive directors in New Hampshire because of her extensive experience and reputation for superior delivery of services to her residents.
Before joining Sanctuary Care at Rye, Pelletier managed a 109-apartment independent- and assisted-living community in Keene, where she created a care environment that led to 100 percent occupancy. She previously was executive director for 10 years of a 75-bed assisted-living community in Peterborough, where she led the company through census growth and a major renovation.
"I am excited about joining Sanctuary Care at Rye to help them fulfill their mission to offer the best memory care available that addresses physical, mental and spiritual needs." Pelletier said. "I have spent my career putting the needs of residents first and I am so happy to be able to offer people in need of memory care a safe, secure and joyful place to live."
Pelletier is involved with health care nonprofit organizations serving as an Alzheimer Association's regional walk coordinator and as a member of the N.H. Association for Residential Care Homes, which formulates educational programs and referral relationships for assisted-living communities, and sets their legislative and regulatory agendas. She is the New Hampshire state coordinator for the Women in the Outdoors program and active with the American Cancer Society, Lion's Club, Chamber of Commerce and United Way.
"We are pleased to be able to attract Angela to our team as we strive to offer the best memory care available," said Jonathan McCoy, CEO and founder of Sanctuary Care at Rye. "Her reputation for excellence is exceeded only by her passion for helping others, and she represents exactly the type of serving heart that is the hallmark of Sanctuary Care."
Scheduled to open next spring, residents of Sanctuary Care at Rye will benefit from the latest memory care knowledge and resources.
