How is Lakewood Villa different from other senior care facilities?

Posted By on October 22, 2017

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.

Does your home smell good? Lakewood Villa’s does

Posted By on November 20, 2017

Does it smell good? It does at Lakewood Villa


When you enter a building, your sense of smell becomes very active. The building will smell good, or it won’t. You will know within 10 seconds. Lakewood Villa consistently smells good. The licensee wants our home to look and smell clean. That’s not automatic in a building with 18 senior citizens. Keeping the home smelling clean is a high priority.

Smell is an indicator of other issues. A building that smells good is clean. Laundry is washed and ready for wear. Food is fresh. Bathrooms are spotless. Staff works hard to maintain the facility and make sure the building smells clean. It is not automatic. It is the result of hard work at a well-run senior care home.

Does your home smell good? Lakewood Villa's does

Lakewood Villa creates the happiest day in her life

Posted By on November 19, 2017

Lakewood Villa staff enables video conferencing. Mom can be there remotely

Can your assisted living home support Skype video conferences? Lakewood Villa can.

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.

Lakewood Villa is prepared to handle an emergency

Posted By on November 14, 2017

Are you prepared to handle an emergency? Lakewood Villa is

Lakewood Villa provides easy access for EMTs

Lakewood Villa is 42 seconds away from the local fire station. EMTs can get here quickly and have easy access into our facility.

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 ask you for her medical file and any meds while checking her vitals. Are you prepared to answer their questions?

That’s where Lakewood Villa can help. If your mom were at Lakewood Villa, staff would have answers for the EMTs. They keep a 3-ring binder for each resident with their medical records and emergency contact information. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

Sacramento Assisted Living | How do you find somewhere for mom to live?

Posted By on November 13, 2017

When looking for an assisted living home, become familiar with the admission process in advance.

This will help make the transition to an assisted living home smoother and faster. Here are the steps we follow at Lakewood Villa:

  1. If your loved ones are not able to make decisions for themselves, get started on the Durable Power of Attorney.  You will need this document. You will have to make some big decisions regarding mom’s care. The first may be deciding if mom needs assisted living.
  2. Call Lakewood Villa at (916) 682-2867 for a tour of our assisted living home. You can meet the administrator and the care staff in person. Make a list of all your questions and concerns. We will be happy to address all of them.
  3. Start the Resident Assessment Process. Meet the administrator. We need to meet and physically see your loved ones. We can evaluate their physical condition, mental state, medication and medical history. The assessment process is an important step. It helps us determine if your loved ones are a good fit for our assisted living home, and our home is a good fit for them.
  4. You have to be open and honest about all the background information. We want to make sure we really are a good fit. We want to make sure that your loved ones’ needs are within what we can provide. 
  5. The Assessment Process is a very, very important step in the assisted living admissions process. You should make sure the facility administrator does a thorough assessment up front. If that does not happen, you could be in for a big surprise down the road. Remember, you’re looking for a new home for mom.
  6. If we both decide that Lakewood Villa is the right place for your loved ones, we determine the move-in date. Prior to move-in, we brief you on some of the important papers we would need upon admission:
    1. Physician’s Report (LIC 602A). The California Department of Community Care Licensing actually mandates all care home facilities to have this upon admitting a resident. That particular physician’s report form must be completed and signed by their physician. It documents the loved one’s physical condition, mental condition and TB-clearance (tuberculosis). Your loved one has to be clear of TB before spending the first night here.
    2. Emergency Contact Form. This details the family emergency contacts. Who do we call in case of emergency? Who is the primary care doctor? Which hospital do you prefer for us to take them to in case of emergency?
    3. Admissions Agreement form. This includes a description of all items and services included in the basic rate, facility policies and procedures, conditions for termination of the agreement, a copy of residents’ rights specified by law or regulation.
  7. You also need to have their medications in place. We request at least a two-week supply of your loved one’s medications the minute they walk into the facility.

Do you love your job? Ask the staff at mom’s assisted living home

Posted By on November 11, 2017

Do you love your job? Ask the staff next time you visit mom’s assisted living home

When you work in the assisted living profession, you have to love your job

Yes, we are serious. Do you love your job? Some people honestly do their jobs for a paycheck and a pending pension. They do it because they have to do it, not because they love to do it. Maybe you’re in the same trap. Do you love your job or do you trudge your way through the workday?

That’s not how it is with the staff at Lakewood Villa. Staff sincerely loves doing their jobs. It is pretty obvious. Working with the elderly and providing senior care is not for everybody. Some people are not cut out for assisted living. Some people think they can do this, but time exposes all truths. At Lakewood Villa, the owner and administrator can tell if a new employee enjoys working with the elderly, or if they should go elsewhere. Those who stay sincerely love their jobs. That is one of the benefits you will find at Lakewood Villa…staff genuinely loves working with the elderly.

The people who work at Lakewood Villa love working here. They love helping the elderly. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 today.

It’s karaoke night at Lakewood Villa

Posted By on November 10, 2017

Lakewood Villa’s karaoke night keeps residents active and engaged

Residents at Lakewood Villa have a full schedule of social activities. One of the most popular is Karaoke Night, where residents grab a microphone and sing Love Me Tender, Tennessee Waltz and Moon River, among other hits.

It’s a blast. Everyone loves karaoke night. We’re not sure why. The singing is not great but let’s face it, this is not American Idol. Good karaoke is very tough to find. Karaoke exists more to entertain than to find undiscovered talent. It is an activity that helps keep Lakewood Villa’s senior citizens active and engaged. Doctors report that seniors enjoy better health if they are active. Their minds remain sharper. They are more able to remember names and pleasant experiences. They are more able to talk to you when you visit.

Being active and engaged includes singing, socializing with friends and visiting places. When you’re looking at your mom’s daily schedule, ask if she has enough contact with people of her age. Ask if she has something to look forward to, which keeps her active and engaged. These would all be YESes if she lived at Lakewood Villa. Call (916) 682-2867 today.  Content is from http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/.
