Home Care Hero Lizbeth Velez Cruz

Lizbeth Velez Cruz is a #HomeCareHero. Read her story. 


During a time of crisis true leaders emerge and pave the way to the path of mitigation and eventual normalcy.

Since the pandemic onslaught in early March 2020, Americare Certified Special Services had a number of leaders who revealed their mettle at the frontlines in the form of Americare's field nurses.

The pandemic blindsided and changed everything imaginable: the way we work, communicate, socialize, eat, and live. One constant remained: the way we take care of our patients in the community.

One such brave, dedicated, selfless nurse is Lizbeth Velez Cruz. "Liz is our LEADER in initiating home care services for all the COVID-19 patients in Queens," writes Bridget Gallagher, Vice President at Americare. "She pioneered the way we service these patients in all other boroughs and simply paved the way for the rest of our field staff by her magnificent example. We are truly grateful to have such Leaders here at Americare CSS."
