Elda is our Regional Director of Operations and oversees the teams in six of our Azura homes.
Prior to joining Azura Memory Care, Elda worked as a CBRF Administrator for many years. Her love for the elderly and, more specifically, those with Alzheimer’s and related dementias began at a young age when she took a job as a CNA in a memory care facility.
With nearly two decades of experience in memory care, Elda has a combination of knowledge, skills and personal awareness to effectively meet the needs of individuals with dementia and to foster a great team of caregivers.
Elda earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences and subsequently a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from UW-Milwaukee. In addition, Elda is a Certified Dementia Care and Behavior Specialist and Instructor, who loves developing relationships and personal approaches with residents. She is a Certified Standard Precautions Instructor and holds a certificate in Gerontology.
Elda believes that family is the most precious thing in life and enjoys spending time with hers whenever she is not at work.
“Azura’s MOSAIC philosophy aligns perfectly with my personal philosophy in providing individualized person-centered care to every resident and his/her family. As caregivers we have been blessed with the ability to meet, interact and make a difference in someone’s life each and every day. There is no greater reward in life than that!”
