In recognition of National Nurses Week, May 6 to 12, GranVida Senior Living and Memory Care spotlights their longtime nurse Patricia Garcia. Garcia has been with GranVida since the first day they opened their doors to the Carpinteria community. She has been with the residents through the Thomas Fire and recent mudslides. She was also working alongside GranVida as they opened their doors to evacuees, keeping everyone safe while still serving the senior community.
Garcia brings a wide variety of nursing disciplines together to better serve the senior residents at GranVida: cardiac, mental health, case management and others. Carpinteria is also Garcia’s hometown so she has a deep passion for the town and its residents. “Patricia’s rapport with seniors and family members is wonderful,” said GranVida Executive Director Catherine Lee. “She is very sensitive, understanding and insightful and we feel very lucky to have her as part of the GranVida community.”
