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 administrator asks: Do you love your job?

Posted By on March 4, 2015

Do you love your job? You would if you worked at Lakewood Villa

Gerard Hojilla is the administrator of Lakewood Villa

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 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 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

Lakewood Villa is a safe place for mom

Lakewood Villa is very safe

Lakewood Villa is a safe place for mom

Lakewood Villa is a safe place for mom

Where is your mom spending the night? Will it be in a place 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.

Times change and bodies change

How many of us think our 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. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

Lakewood Villa asks: Where is your mom spending the night?

Will it be 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!

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?

Do you assume your parents are as self-sufficient as they were 20 years ago? 30 years ago? Times change. Bodies change.

Mom’s assisted living home should have a highly trained staff

Posted By on February 18, 2015

The assisted living home you choose for mom should have a highly trained staff

Mom's assisted living home should have a highly trained staff. Gerard Hojilla is the administrator of Lakewood Villa. He makes sure staff gets abundant training.

Staff training is very important in the assisted living field. The staff at Lakewood Villa is highly trained. Most are cross trained. The State of California imposes mandates for staff training. All assisted living homes must meet those mandates and keep the paperwork on site to prove the training is current. Lakewood Villa goes above and beyond the State’s mandates. The owner sends staff to training that is above and beyond the State’s mandates. Your mom will notice the difference.

The additional training helps Lakewood Villa cross train staff and provide a higher level of assisted living to our residents. We may have one cook on site at a time, but we have three staffers who have formal training in cooking for the elderly. We may have one social director on site, but we have three staffers with training on how to keep elderly residents active and social. Staff certifications hang proudly on the wall. Not all assisted living homes disclose staff certifications. We do. Staff training goes above and beyond what we have to provide. It is, however, what the owner feels is necessary for maintaining Lakewood Villa’s high level of care.

When you go to work and your kids go to school, who stays with your mom? If she lives alone, how many people does she see in a given day? How many in a given week? Chances are your mom spends a lot of time in solitude. Doctors advise that an active social life helps improve quality of life and overall health. What kind of environment does your mom experience every day? With 18 residents and staff on duty 24/7, your mom will have an active and nourishing social life. that’s how it is at our assisted living home. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

Lakewood Villa is close to the fire station

Posted By on February 11, 2015

The fire station is 42 seconds from Lakewood Villa


The closest fire station is 42 seconds away from Lakewood Villa. Mom will feel safe, warm and loved at our assisted living facility. Your mom’s home should be close to a fire station.

Lakewood Villa is close to the local fire station. They have fire fighters and EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians) available 24 hours a day. If something happens, we can call 911 and get an EMT here in 42 seconds. The fire station is literally right down the street. Not only are they nearby, but we are also on good terms with them.

We include the local fire station staff in our Thanksgiving celebrations and make sure they get goodies after Christmas, Easter and many other special events. It’s part of being a good neighbor. As you look at where mom is staying these days, ask how far away the closest fire station and EMTs are. Ask if they know your senior citizen mom is nearby and how they would get to her quickly in an emergency. Ask yourself if you have a file showing her meds. Lakewood Villa can help.

Sacramento Assisted Living | A safe place for mom

Assisted living is very safe

Probably safer than where your mom currently lives. 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.

What sets Lakewood Villa apart from other assisted living homes?

That’s where an assisted living home can help. With staff on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, we maintain a safe environment.

Can your mom’s assisted living home pass your innate quality control litmus test?

Posted By on January 28, 2015

Visit your mom’s assisted living home and run an innate quality control litmus test

Can your mom's assisted living home pass your innate quality control litmus test?

Can your mom’s assisted living home pass your innate quality control litmus test?

When you’re looking for an assisted living home where mom will feel safe, comfortable and loved, you will find a wide variety of options. While touring them, ask if they meet your innate quality control litmus test.

Everybody has an innate quality control litmus test. This triggers when you are eating lunch. If you’re in a luxurious restaurant where the cook uses only the best ingredients, you will know. If you’re in a fast food joint where everything is deep-fried, you will know. This is your innate quality control litmus test talking.

This also applies when visiting assisted living homes for your mom. If you’re in a place that is run well, you will know. The paint will be fresh. The landscaping will look well-maintained. The lawn will be healthy. The opposite is also true. If you’re in a place that is barely in business, the paint, landscaping and lawn will be neglected.

That’s just the outside. You ring the doorbell and someone lets you enter. From here, you can tell if this assisted living home smells pleasant, if the furniture is in good shape and if the residents are active and engaged. Remember, this is a place that may become your mom’s home. You will know in a New York Minute if this is a good place for mom.

Next time you visit an assisted living home, follow your innate quality control litmus test. Listen as it tells you about the exterior and the interior. Lakewood Villa will pass your quality control litmus test. The owner sets high expectations and staff consistently meets them. Residents and family members appreciate them. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

You have the licensee’s cell phone number, if mom stays at Lakewood Villa

Vixcent Villaluna is the licensee of Lakewood Villa

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 anytime and check on your loved ones. The licensee feels it is necessary and gives out his cell phone number as part of the check-in process.

That is the high-level of assisted care you will find at Lakewood Villa. You can call the licensee if an emergency arises, to share medical information, or just to check up on mom. They 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 prepares 21 home cooked meals a week

Posted By on January 21, 2015

Home cooked meals? Yes, if you live at Lakewood Villa

Lakewood Villa has nutritious home cooked mealsIs your mom getting 21 home cooked meals every week? That’s three meals a day for seven days. Is your mom getting tasty and nutritious home cooked meals? If your mom lived at Lakewood Villa, the answers would be YES!

Lakewood Villa has expert cooks on staff. They prepare 21 meals a week for our residents. Management posts a schedule of mealtimes but most residents don’t read it. They know when it is mealtime because the building smells wonderful. That’s how it is with good cooking. Lakewood Villa’s  staff gets continuing education which includes food management and nutrition. You can see their Certificates of Achievement on the wall.

Next time you visit your mom or review her diet, ask how many tasty, healthy and hearty meals she is getting every week. Preparing tasty, healthy and hearty meals takes time, effort and expertise. Mom probably does not have that. Getting good meals is more important than ever for your elderly loved ones. Make sure they are in an environment where tasty, healthy and hearty meals are served 21 times a week. Lakewood Villa can help.

Under promise and over deliver, says Lakewood Villa Licensee

Posted By on January 21, 2015

Under promise and over deliver at Lakewood Villa

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.

Vixcent Villaluna is the licensee of Lakewood Villa. We under promise and over deliver at our assisted living home

Vixcent Villaluna is the licensee of Lakewood Villa


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 not how 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.
