Our professional staff provide professional care in a friendly and familiar manner.

They consider each resident a member of the family and nothing makes them prouder to hear a new resident call Eastland their home. Take a moment here to get to know our staff and learn about their experience and qualifications.

quote marksThe elderly need more people in health care who will advocate for them, and who can serve their needs while maintaining their dignity. I'm proud that we're able to provide that type of care at Eastland

Paulette Miller

Paulette joined the team in 2021 with over 40 years experience working in nursing homes, assisted living, and independent living as Executive and Marketing Directors. Retired in 2020, but missed working with seniors, so when offered the position at Eastland, she was ready to come out of retirement.

Paulette has lived in Auburn for 30 years. Loves being part of this community. She has three grown children and six grandchildren.

quote marksMy passion has always been to enhance the lives of seniors.
