Congratulations to Elva Ledesma, LVN, Executive Director of ActivCare at Yorba Linda!
Elva was recognized as Outstanding Executive Director at the California Assisted Living Association's Fall Conference.
Elva’s leadership skills contributed to the safety and well-being of ActivCare residents and associates, especially in times of emergency. When wildfires burned throughout San Diego County in 2014, she led her team in evacuating 70 residents living with dementia to a nearby community for safety. Then again, in 2017, when devastating wildfires ripped through Los Angeles County, Elva hosted memory care residents who had been evacuated from another company's community in Santa Clarita for more than two weeks.
Elva has been a valued member of ActivCare for more than 20 years. As a licensed LVN, she provides compassionate care to residents with grace and patience. With the same degree of commitment, she inspires her team to deliver exceptional care to the residents of ActivCare at Yorba Linda. We are so proud to have this remarkable professional as a member of our organization.
Three cheers for Elva and her distinguished award!
