How is Lakewood Villa different from other senior care facilities?

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.

Lakewood Villa is a happy place for mom

We have several success stories because of the care that we provide. They come to Lakewood Villa with a variety of needs and we see them pretty much in a better and happier state than when they walked in. That is success. Success would be getting all those letters from families thanking us for providing a loving, nurturing and safe environment for their loved ones. The gestures from the families, just thanking us for the little things that we do, is success. This content is from http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/.

Lakewood Villa is a safer solution

Posted By on July 9, 2014

Lakewood Villa is a safer solution

Lakewood Villa is probably saferLakewood Villa is probably safer than mom’s current home. Maybe this is her situation. Mom has been living alone for 10 years. She thinks she is safe, but the neighborhood is changing. People are coming home from work and finding their homes have been ransacked. The neighborhood that used to be safe above question is no longer safe.

Even if your neighborhood “is safe,” the troublemakers have cars. They can easily drive 20 or 30 miles to find a place that looks nice. They can find homes with nice, green lawn. They can find homes where people don’t lock the doors. Troublemakers are hungry and desperate.

What would mom do if a burglar entered in the middle of the day? Mom weighs 110 pounds. Most troublemakers on the TV news appear bigger and stronger than mom. She is getting terrified and feeling less secure in her home of 40 years.

Can your mom move in with you? Are you at home 24/7 and able to fend off a troublemaker? Can you make your home so secure that a troublemaker would look and keep on walking, looking for an easier score? Probably not.

Lakewood Villa can help. Lakewood Villa has staff onsite 24/7. They lock the doors and do rounds. They have intrusion and fire alarms. You can’t even open a window there without a chime or an alarm going off. The fire station is 42 seconds away and Lakewood Villa staff is on very good terms with the fire department staff. The firemen know who resides at Lakewood Villa. They know how to get to the building and its elderly residents quickly, in case an emergency arose. Lakewood Villa can help.

Sacramento assisted living facility asks if you are ready for this…

Mom needs an assisted living facility

Sacramento assisted living facility asks if you are ready for this…

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

You got a call at midnight. Your mom had a stroke. Mom was in the hospital, again. This time it was the ICU. Doctors said she would be discharged within a week, but she won’t be able to walk as much as she used to walk. She will also need someone to help her run her life. She will need someone to lock the doors, cook her meals and keep her alert. Living in solitude, like what she has done for the past 14 years, will no longer work. Mom needs an assisted living facility.

Are you in this situation? If you are in your 40s, chances are your parents are in their 60s or 70s and not as strong as they used to be. You never know when you can get that phone call informing you that your beloved mother or father is in need of assisted care. You are already running your life, your career and your family. Can you remain happy, grow your career, provide sufficient time for your family and provide the assisted living your mom or dad needs? Probably not.

Lakewood Villa can help. Lakewood Villa has staff on duty 24/7, making sure the doors are locked, preparing meals and helping keep residents engaged. You can get back to your life, your career and your family and let professionals help with your senior parents. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 today.

It’s karaoke night at Lakewood Villa

Posted By on June 25, 2014

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/.

What activities will mom find at an assisted living home?

Posted By on June 18, 2014

Mom should find many activities at her assisted living home. Here’s what’s happening at Lakewood Villa

Fun activities are very important at an assisted living home. Music is a great part of the Lakewood Villa activities calendar. We found that music is the one activity a lot of the residents enjoy. They love to sing! We also have enough room to do ballroom dancing in our Great Room. Dancing is a great form of exercise, too.

We have arts and crafts for the ladies. Sometimes gentlemen like to participate. Bingo is always a big hit. Everyone seems to have so much fun playing.

Lakewood Villa has a creative and engaging staff member. She is a certified activities leader and is responsible for organizing and evaluating our activities. She makes sure our program is appropriately designed to meet our residents’ needs.

Lakewood Villa has tons of assisted living activities, including dancing

How do you lead up to a holiday?

Whenever a holiday approaches, we make it a big deal for our assisted living residents. It’s not only that holiday, but it is also the week leading to that holiday. The activities, crafts and decorations are more geared towards that upcoming holiday.

A few years back at Christmastime, we had volunteer students from a local grade school visit our assisted living home. They went around and they talked to our residents. They interviewed them, asked them what they liked and what fond memories they held. Each student focused on one resident. They ended up creating Christmas tree ornaments for each of the residents, based on their interview with them. One of our residents said he loves scooters. The girl who interviewed him made a Christmas ornament that had a drawing of a scooter. It was so neat and so personalized. It feels great to do those kinds of things. It involves both our assisted living community and the community around us. Lakewood Villa can help.

What does the Lakewood Villa admission process look like?

Posted By on May 21, 2014

You should become familiar with the Lakewood Villa admission process in advance

Gerard Hojilla is the administrator of Lakewood VillaThis will help make the transition smoother and faster. Here are the steps:

  1. If your loved ones are not able to make decisions for themselves, get started on the Durable Power of Attorney. At some point, you will need this document. Someone will have to make some very responsible decisions regarding your loved ones’ care.
  2. Call Lakewood Villa at (916) 682-2867 for a tour of the facility. 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 by meeting the Administrator of the facility. We need to be able 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 facility, and our facility 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 whole 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.
  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.
