Press release
Catie Gaudreault, RN, was promoted to Director of Nursing Services at Peabody Home following the retirement of Cheryl Barnes

Peabody Home in Franklin recently promoted Catie Gaudreault to Director of Nursing Services following the retirement of Cheryl Barnes after 22 years of service at this community based senior living home.

Ms. Gaudreault brings strong nursing skills with a focus on palliative and hospice care, coupled with a penchant for staff training and educating in the elder care arena – she still finds time to teach at Lakes Region and Manchester Community Colleges as a clinical instructor for their nursing and LNA programs.

Ms. Gaudreault holds an Associate in Science nursing degree from New Hampshire Technical Institute, a baccalaureate of Science in Nursing from Walden College, and is currently working towards her Masters in Nursing Education.  Prior professional service took place at Concord Hospital working on the medical/surgical unit and providing case management for Bayada Hospice, also in Concord.

Meg Miller, Executive Director at Peabody Home stated “Catie Gaudreault as Director of Nursing brings with her the values and culture important to the residents and families of Peabody Home. Dignity, respect, understanding, and above all a willingness to listen to what “Quality of Life” means to the elder and the family. Catie is enthusiastic, a strong leader knowing that a well-cared for staff will ensure the best care of the residents who depend on us for that care.  I’m thrilled to welcome her to a consummate, professional team.”

Aside from her professional life as a champion and advocate for thoughtful, compassionate eldercare, she is a sympathetic hospice and palliative care nurse, and an emerging leader in her field.  When not at Peabody Home, Catie enjoys family time with her husband and three children, outdoor pursuits, running, and when sitting still, which isn’t often, crocheting.

Peabody Home is a non-profit, private pay, multi-leveled unique senior living community nestled in the heart of Franklin, and located along the banks of the Winnipesaukee River offering assisted living, nursing care, respite, hospice and memory care.
