Mom’s assisted living home has to be a safe place for mom

Posted By on December 31, 2017

Your mom’s assisted living home has to be very safe. Here’s why…

Lakewood Villa is an assisted living home where mom can feel safeWhere 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. Call (916) 682-2867 today for a tour. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

Is assisted living a safer solution for mom?

Posted By on December 30, 2017

Assisted living is probably safer

An assisted living home 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.

Different assisted living homes have their own procedures. We can speak for our home, Lakewood Villa. 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.

Assisted living staff home creates the happiest day in her life

Posted By on December 28, 2017

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

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

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


Here’s an assisted living success story. 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 at our assisted living home set up and tested Skype on a general access computer. The owner verified the Internet connection could support Skype. 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 assisted living home’s general 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. Lakewood Villa can help. Call (916) 682-2867 or visit http://lakewoodvillacarehome.com/assisted-living-in-sacramento/ today.

Lakewood Villa advises: The holidays are here!

Posted By on December 26, 2017

The holidays are here, at Lakewood Villa

What sets Lakewood Villa apart from other senior care home facilities?Thanksgiving and the December holidays have occurred. New Year’s Day 2013 has arrived. This is the time of year when we enjoy spending time with loved ones. If your loved ones are too busy or too far away, they could feel isolated. The weather is bad. People stay inside. People don’t socialize as often.

The feeling of loneliness is more severe when the weather turns bad. This is the time of the year when people stay inside. They look at the sky and find grey clouds. They look at the clock and find darkness at 5:00 PM. If friends and loved ones are not under the same roof, the loneliness is more visible. This is not the time of the year to be alone.

That’s where Lakewood Villa can help. With a capacity for 18 residents, they have staff on duty 24/7. There is always someone on site who is awake and social. Residents have a wide variety of social activities ranging from singing, karaoke and dancing to church services, knitting and bingo. Loneliness does not happen at Lakewood Villa. Call (916) 682-2867 today.

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

Posted By on December 25, 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.

What activities does the Lakewood Villa staff run for mom?

Posted By on December 24, 2017

Mom will find many activities at Lakewood Villa

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 activities, including dancing

How do you lead up to a holiday?

Whenever a holiday approaches, we make it a big deal for the 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 Lakewood Villa. 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 and 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 and the girl who interviewed him made a Christmas ornament that had a drawing of a scooter. It was so neat and so personalized. It’s great to do those kinds of things and it involves both our community and the community around us. Lakewood Villa can help.

Mom’s assisted living home is prepared to handle an emergency

Posted By on December 23, 2017

Are you prepared to handle an emergency? Assisted living homes are

Mom's assisted living home is prepared to handle an emergency
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.
