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 an 18-bed Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE). We provide safe and supportive housing for your loved ones when:
They are unable to care for themselves
Caring for them puts too much burden on you and your family
The care they need is above and beyond what you can provide.
Our goal is to enhance the quality of life of our residents. We provide a supportive environment that promotes dignity and independence. This gives you peace of mind knowing your loved ones will get the best possible care.
Mom will feel safe, warm and loved at Lakewood Villa
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.
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.
That’s where Lakewood Villa can help. Located in Sacramento, Lakewood Villa provides an assisted living home where mom will feel safe, warm and loved. That is what we do. We have staff onsite 24/7.

Ever wonder what mom’s assisted living community would look like if the residents were in charge? New York Timesblogger Judith Graham got a pretty good idea when she asked Martin Bayne that question.
Byrne is a big advocate for people in assisted living. He writes a blog called The Voice of Aging Boomers from his home in a Pennsylvania assisted living home. Bayne has been living with Parkinson’s disease for 18 years.
What Would Martin Bayne Do?
Bayne says he would do 5 things if he ran an assisted living community:
Focus on passion. When a prospective resident came to visit, Bayne would sit him or her down with 10 other residents. That group would ask a few questions. “What’s your passion? What motivates you? What’s your mission in life?” If the guest didn’t have an answer to those questions, the community would not accept him or her as a resident. “We want a community that is alive,” Bayne says.
Establish a welcoming committee. The committee would treat the new resident like royalty. “We’d show you that we care about you,” he says.
Give every resident a job. “No matter how seemingly insignificant, you’d have responsibilities every day,” he says. “And the emphasis wouldn’t be on you, the emphasis would be on the community.”
Bring residents together every week in a peer group. “We’d meet to discuss anything that people think is important,” he says. “There wouldn’t be a leader. We’d just sit together and sometimes cry, sometimes laugh.”
Involve everyone in activities. These wouldn’t be activities that “take up time while you wait for death,” says Bayne. Instead, the activities would “make you think and respond and use your brain.” Those activities might include making calls to shut-ins or reading to children who have disabilities. “We want you busy, productive, happy,” he says. “We want people to feel, ‘I’m alive.’”
Do you love your job? You would if you worked at 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.
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/.
