Lakewood Villa has staff onsite 24/7 to provide the assisted senior living and senior care to make mom comfortable in the Autumn of her days. Call (916) 682-2867 for a tour of our residential care facility.
What sets Lakewood Villa apart from other senior care home facilities?
At Lakewood Villa, we believe that the people who take care of your loved ones should be highly skilled and educated. We provide year-long training. We invest in the continuing education of our care staff. We currently have on board caregivers that hold nursing degrees, administrator’s certificates, CNAs, and Activity Leader Certifications. With the winning combination of a compassionate and highly skilled care staff, you can have confidence that your loved ones will get the care they deserve at Lakewood Villa.
Lakewood Villa is not the only senior care facility. Why would I bring mom here? Why not keep her at home?
We are able to provide 24-hour care. Family members and some smaller senior care home facilities are not able to provide this. In cases where mom has been diagnosed with dementia, that could be a critical point.
We provide senior care 7 days a week. This includes holidays.
We carefully monitor every single need that they have. The medical needs are especially crucial. Not only in terms of providing medical care, but in being proactive enough to sense that they would be in need of some medical assistance. Mom and Dad can get better care in a structured scenario than could find at home. You love mom. We love our jobs. We take care of senior citizens 24/7.
Where is your mom spending the night, asks an assisted living home licensee
Assisted living licensee asks: Where is your mom spending the night?
If your mom lives in an assisted living home, you will know this answer. If not, you should ask.
Will your mom spend the night in a place where she can feel safe and secure? Are there locks and alarms? Is a fire station nearby and does the fire station staff know your mom is in the neighborhood? If mom is spending the night at Lakewood Villa, the answers would all be YES! Those are some of the benefits at our assisted living home.
You need to set high expectations here. Your mom is not young and agile like you are. She probably needs to know that she is safe and secure before turning out the lights. She needs to know someone is there to help in case something happens. If she fell and cried out: “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”! Would someone hear her? Our assisted living home has staff onsite 24/7. Someone would hear her.
Do you assume your parents are as self-sufficient as they were 20 years ago? 30 years ago? Times change. Bodies change. Climbing stairs, preparing meals and keeping track of details is not as easy as it used to be. You need to find somewhere that mom can stay and have her needs met. Lakewood Villa can help.

Lakewood Villa staff and residents know each other well
Lakewood Villa residents and staff are on a first name basis
Some assisted care facilities are too small and some are too large. Some are just right. When you visit Lakewood Villa, you will find the facility has the right size. It is not too large and it is not too small. Since Lakewood Villa is the right size, staff get to know the residents very well.
Staff really does care enough about residents to learn their names and build a high level of trust. Staffing levels enable staff to spend quality time with your loved ones and get to know them, their lives and their likes. It helps create an atmosphere where your mom will feel safe, loved and warm.
When you visit facilities, ask if the facility has the right mix. Ask if they are small enough so staff knows every resident well. Ask if they are large enough to proactively manage a facility large enough to house 18 senior citizens. Lakewood Villa can help.

One of the services Lakewood Villa provides is medication management. We forecast when our residents’ meds will run out. From the minute mom moves in, we take over the task of managing her medications.
Their meds will be in a centrally-locked area. This is in our medication room. Meds are managed by our trained medication staff. This helps ensure they are administered safely. This ensures they are administered in accordance with doctor’s orders. This also applies to any over-the-counter meds.
Everything in medicine management is documented and double checked. If you bring in a bottle with a prescription, we check that against the doctor’s orders. We double-check very often. Medication is something that you definitely need to manage correctly. It is very important. It is part of what we do.
We spend a lot of time making sure that everything is correct and accurate. It’s not something that you should take lightly. It’s a priority both in admissions and everyday operations.
We keep medicine in a dedicated room. That room is locked. Only a few caregivers have access into that room. We have a locked cabinet for the meds. That key is available only to a few staff members.
Lakewood Villa is compliant with the Health & Safety Code 1569.69. This requires staff training on medications. This is for any RCFE staff member that will assist residents with self-administration of medications.
Lakewood Villa staff training includes:
8 hours of initial training or instruction within the first two weeks of employment.
8 hours of hands-on shadow training in the facility prior to assisting residents with self-administration of meds.
Passing an exam that tests the employee’s comprehension of and competency in the nine medication topics.
Lakewood Villa collects name, phone, e-mail and comment data from its website visitors. We collect this data for the purpose of responding to inquiries. We do not sell or share your information. Only the licensees have access to your information.
At Lakewood Villa, we under promise and over deliver. When we say under promise and over deliver, we are referring to the act of providing your customer more than he requested and you are under contract to provide. The cost to you is minimal. The customer will appreciate the extra service. Here are some examples.
Suppose you go to the local donut shop, buy a dozen donuts and find 13 donuts in the box. The baker promised you 12 donuts, but gave you one extra. You will probably remember this the next time you want a box of donuts.
Suppose your mom is living in an assisted care facility. They are under contract to provide a safe and comfortable environment. They probably are not under contract to provide the owner’s cell phone number or enable Skype video conferences. At Lakewood Villa, you get both.

We recently had a resident attend a family reunion in Chicago, without leaving the building. We set up and tested Skype. We coordinated our resident’s “visit” to the reunion. We dolled her up and established the Skype call to Chicago. She sat at the computer talking to her family members at the reunion. She felt as if she were really there in person. Family members were overjoyed we could help her attend the conference.
The Skype setup is not part of our contract. Staff could have said, “Sorry…that’s not our job,” but that is nothow we do things at Lakewood Villa. We made the Skype video conference happen. Everybody involved was overjoyed that we made it work and helped grandma attend her family reunion. This is one example of how the staff at Lakewood Villa under promises and over delivers. We do it every day. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

Are you prepared to handle an emergency? Assisted living homes are
Here is a reality check from your trusted assisted living advisor. This could happen to you. Maybe it already has. You and your mother are watching TV. All of a sudden, she slips, falls and complains, “ I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.” What do you do?
You call 911 and tell them your address. EMTs arrive. They find a door wide enough for a gurnee. They ask you for mom’s medical file and any meds while checking her vitals. They’re trying to save her life. Are you prepared to answer their questions?
That’s where an assisted living home like Lakewood Villa can help. If your mom were at an assisted living home, staff would have answers for the EMTs. We keep a 3-ring binder for each resident with their medical records and emergency contact information. EMTs can get here quickly. they can get to residents quickly. They can get the info they need quickly. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.
How often does your mom go out? Lakewood Villa can take residents to the mall
Lakewood Villa can take residents to the mall
Sometimes, old people stay inside too often. They become less active and their health deteriorates. They don’t have anything to stimulate them or keep them active. It is sad but true.
That’s not how it is at Lakewood Villa. We have a minivan and can take residents to the mall. Sometimes they don’t have to buy anything at the mall, they just want to go and be social. It is very stimulating. Sometimes small things like trips to the mall can have a big impact. We can schedule and conduct regular trips, weather permitting, of course.
Lakewood Villa staff enables video conferencing. Mom can be there remotely
A Lakewood Villa resident recently attended a family reunion in Chicago via the Internet. Family members told us they were organizing a family reunion in Chicago and wanted their mother to attend via a video conference. Staff set up and tested Skype on a general access computer. The owner verified the Internet access could support Skype and staff learned how to use the service. The owner also told their loved one that a family reunion was approaching and she would get to see her loved ones.
On the big day, staff dolled up mom. They put on her makeup and made her feel very pretty. Staff created a Skype video conference and called Chicago. Mom sat at the computer for two hours while talking to her loved ones in Chicago. She said she felt like she was in the same room. Family members thanked us repeatedly for making this special day happen for mom.
Mom still talks about this like it was the happiest day of her life. It was a happy day for us too. We are Lakewood Villa. Call (916) 682-2867 today.
Your mom’s assisted living home has to be very safe. Here’s why…
Where is your mom spending the night? Will it be in an assisted living home where she can feel safe, warm and loved? Are there locks and alarms? Is a fire station nearby and does the fire station staff know your mom is in the neighborhood?
You need to set high expectations here. Your mom is not young and agile like you are. She probably needs to know that she is safe and secure before turning out the lights. She needs to know someone is there to help in case something happens. That’s why you put her in an assisted living home in the first place.
