How is Lakewood Villa different from other senior care facilities?

Posted By on December 17, 2013

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 can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

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/.

Assisted Living Help: 5 Easy Steps to Simplify Your Life

Assisted Living: 5 Easy Steps to Simplify Your Life

Special thanks to Ann Mullen for granting permission to republish http://blog.sequoiaseniorsolutions.com/blog/bid/324255/Senior-Care-5-Easy-Steps-to-Simplify-Your-Life. This applies to folks living in an assisted living home, or working at an assisted living home.

Mom will feel safe, warm and loved at our assisted living homeYou are running behind and you can’t find your other shoe. Again. And, of course, it’s in the last place you look. By now you are running very behind and you can’t find your keys. Again. Does this sound like your life? Whether you are a senior, a senior caregiver or in your early twenties, stress happens when things get out of hand at home or at work. One of the easiest ways to unclutter and distress your life is to simplify your life. There are several ways to make this happen. Let’s take a look at how to deal with an overwhelming amount of belongings in your home first.

ONE: Do your belongs belong to you or do you belong to them?

If your home is in a mess, then this has a direct impact on how you feel and the way you react to things. Once you have a messy home it is so easy to let this clutter add up even more. You will start to feel down and you will have no motivation to get up to clean, which means even more mess on top of the previous geologic levels.

Action Steps: Choose one area of your home to work on at a time. Start with one room, or even one counter top, and go through everything. If there are items that you hardly ever use them pack them into a box. Do the same with papers and books. If they have become dust bunnies, then get rid of them.

If you feel bad about throwing certain things away find a large box and use it as a donation box. Give these items to a local charity, homeless shelter or home. Another option is to hold a garage sale and sell off these belongings. You can also do the old three box technique–one to keep, one to think about and one to trash. More than likely the things in the “think about” box will be the ones you can give away.

TWO: Don’t try to do everything by yourself

Simplifying your life also applies to mental and physical tasks as well. This includes trying to be a person that does everything for everyone all of the time. The pressure and stress will eventually catch up to you and you will come to a breaking point. Either you will simmer until you throw a tantrum and say things you will wish you could take back or you will get resentful and unloving.

Action Steps: Take action before this happens by learning how to delegate tasks. This can apply to things at work and at home. Quite often your boss keeps giving you additional responsibilities and doesn’t realize that you have become totally overworked and overwhelmed unless you tell him. Your family doesn’t realize that all you do for them is making you resentful unless you tell them before you blow.

THREE: Where did the time go and what did I do with it?

It is important for you to know where your time goes. This one thing can really help you simplify your life. For example, if you spend a huge amount of time on car pooling then look for ways to reduce this. If you make frequent trips to the store, consider creating a list and going less often.

Action Steps: Keep a journal for a week and see how much time you spend on certain things. Ask for help with tasks that take too long.

FOUR: Don’t wait for New Year’s–start some new habits now

Make a commitment to yourself to start a new habit. Research has shown that it takes about 21 days to form a new habit. That really isn’t that long and you can easily cross off 21 days on your calendar quickly.

Action Steps: Perhaps the habit should be one where you clean every day for 15 minutes and you intend to set your alarm to start and stop. You might find you have a few more minutes you want to spend cleaning. Other ideas for new habits include finding homes for all the items on your desk and in your rooms at home. This includes the kitchen, the bathroom and your bedroom. Vow to create a filing system for your bills so they don’t end up pinned to your fridge or strewn all over you counter tops.

Forming new habits can apply to multiple areas of your life including trying to get fit and drop a few pounds or trying to stop smoking. All of these things can cause you more undue stress and taking action and accomplishing something can make you feel like a million bucks.

FIVE: Use that Smartphone the smart way

Are you taking advantage of technology? If not you are missing out when it comes to simplifying your life. Most people today have a computer and at least one type of mobile device. There are plenty of Apps or applications that can be used to make life easier in so many different areas.

Action Steps: Download Apps such as calendars, grocery list, food planners and journals, online notebooks and more. Many Apps can be synched with your entire family’s mobile devices and computers. This way you can have a family calendar that is always up to date. As soon as someone adds something to it the calendar will be updated across all devices. Why keep track of medicines in a book or on your computer when you might need to have that information in an emergency? There is a smartphone app for that.

Your turn

As you can see it is fairly easy to simplify your life by putting a few small action steps into place. Get started by selecting at least one and following through with it. Which one did you pick to start with?

Temps are rising again in Sacramento. High temperatures are trouble for the elderly

Posted By on August 6, 2014

When it gets hot, the elderly will be safer in an assisted living homeHigh temps can be trouble for the elderly

Every time the temperatures soar and remain high, I think about the elderly. Seniors do not regulate their body temperature like they once did. As we age, our body systems slow. Our ability to sweat is reduced. We are unable to cool our bodies as we overheat. Add illnesses, medications that impair temperature regulation, and lack of sufficient fluid intake to a slowing body and mom could have a tough time with the heat. An elderly person is much more susceptible to dehydration, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
If you have an elderly relative or neighbor please check on them frequently this weekend. If they have no air conditioning and you have a fan you can spare, share it. The fan will help mom remain cool. Keep curtains or shades closed to reduce the heat from direct sun. Encourage light clothing, and increased fluids. Try and keep mom’s activity to a minimum and her time outdoors brief.

Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate

When fluid intake is insufficient, you can provide foods with high water content in exchange. Watermelon, cucumbers, peaches, and other fruits and vegetables have fluid content between 80% and 98%. Soups, sorbets, and sherbet also have a high fluid content. Choose low sodium soups, and desserts. Choose sugar free if mom is diabetic.
Some elderly folks have an ordered fluid restriction. They are at risk for fluid overload complications. If that’s the case call the physician for advice on fluid intake during a heat spell.

Is mom in an assisted living home? You should have the licensee’s cell phone number

Posted By on July 30, 2014

You will have the licensee’s cell phone number, if mom stays at our assisted living home

Is mom in an assisted living home? Call the licensee's cell number. Vixcent Villaluna is the licensee of Lakewood Villa.

At Lakewood Villa, all residents and their loved ones have the licensee’s cell phone number. You can call our assisted living home anytime and check on your loved ones. The licensee feels it is necessary and gives you his cell phone number as part of the check-in process.

That is the high-level of assisted living you will find at Lakewood Villa. You can call his cell if an emergency arises, to share medical information, or just to check up on mom. We have staff 24/7 and encourage you to call the regular number. But if you absolutely need to speak with the licensee, you can. You’re the boss.

This is standard at Lakewood Villa. You get access to the licensee and can call anytime. Lakewood Villa truly is a place for mom where she will feel safe and comfortable. You can check anytime. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

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/.
