Sheila Ibarra, LPN

Memory Care Director


Sheila manages the care and safety for patients with dementia who live in the unit she directs at Sunshine. She observes the physical and mental condition of each resident with a critical eye for changes that could affect their well-being. She then determines the appropriate level of care required for each person. Sheila also assists and supports Sunshine’s nursing staff with patient care and safety.

A local, Sheila grew up in Spokane Valley. She knew early on that health care was what she wanted to do, achieving her Certified Nursing Assistant while still in high school. She expanded her education to become a nationally-certified phlebotomist, then earned her LPN certificate.

Sheila enjoys the challenges and flexibility of her role as Memory Care Director. Her staff is supportive and responsive to the needs of patients, and she appreciates the opportunities for professional growth that have enhanced her leadership skills.

Horses are Sheila’s passion. She and her children enjoy learning the skills, responsibility, and accountability necessary in caring for horses and managing their small family farm.
