Erica Bengs

Erica Bengs

Position: Patient Care Coordinator

Organization: Silverado Hospice


What role does your nominee have in senior care and senior care issues?
Erica has worked with Silverado for 19 years. She started at Silverado Senior Living in Escondido as a home heath aide, then as a LVN. Then she transferred to Silverado Hospice.

Why should this person be nominated
As you can see after 19 years at Silverado, Erica is a very caring, compassionate person. Erica is a very driven and dedicated person. She is always meticulous in her work, no matter how long it takes. I can recount multiple occasions of having to remind her to leave the office due to her feeling the need to complete every last detail of her job. Although Erica does work as an office associate, her main focus is always the patients. She wants to ensure that they have all necessary supplies, medications and visits at all times. She is our hero to all our staff in the field!!
