Stefani Nurse Recognition

Happy Nurses Week! National Nurses Week is celebrated May 6-12. This year’s theme by the American Nurses Association is Nurses Make the Difference.

Stefani Saccoccia, Registered Nurse with Avamere at Rio Rancho, truly makes a difference every day. She serves our residents with compassion within our senior living community in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

Here’s what three of our teammates said about Stefani.

Embraces core values

Stefani is hands down the BEST nurse I have ever worked with in the senior living sector. I have never had a nurse that will find time at any point in the day to go do an evaluation and come up with a care plan with custom focuses to meet their needs. Stef has never let us down and consistently supports every department effortlessly and with a commitment like I have rarely seen. She does all of this while going to school to advance her degree and become a CNP and raising a family. Stefani naturally embraces all of Avamere’s core values, and the love she has for her job, residents, and her team is evident in everything that she does.

Dedicated to residents

They have an open ear to all residents and employees. Put our residents’ time before hers. Does evaluations for our buildings with any if, ands, or buts.


They do evaluations to drive census when possible. Stefani is a strong leader and is trustworthy. Great work ethic.
