May 2020 Employee of the Month

luis cejaLuis Ceja

Luis Ceja is an excellent employee here at San Clemente Villas. He was nominated this month for his willingness to work hard and show up on time with a positive attitude. Luis is 19 years old. He is the second oldest out of his siblings. He has one brother and two sisters. He loves to spoil his younger brother with gifts and video games. They have a really tight older and younger brother relationship. He also has an amazing group of friends. They love to go out to places like Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags, bowling, miniature golf, cart racing etc. One of the things that Luis loves doing is going to the movies a lot. He likes all types of movie genres. Luis has been working here at San Clemente Villas since 2018, when his cousin Christian Ceja (a former employee) recommended that he should apply. Since then he has loved working here. He started off as a food server and is now a Prep Cook. He loves to be able to help people out and also make people happy. He also enjoys being able to learn how to cook and acquire new skills in the kitchen. A lot of his best friends work in the kitchen with him so he feels as if it is home for him. He values his relationships with friends and family a lot. He says he wants to work so he can save money to one day travel around the world. His ultimate goal would be to visit Spain one day so that he could watch his favorite Argentine soccer player Lionel Messi. For now he just loves to take it day by day and see where life takes him. We are very honored to have an employee like Luis as part of our Staff.

2020 easter

In Abundance of Optimism

We are publishing our April Newsletter. We are doing the best we can to keep our precious seniors safe at this time. Life goes on at the Villas and all around us. Our thinking is that it would be much easier to let our entertainers, vendors, residents and family know that plans must be cancelled, than to not have prepared any plans at all. Hence, our April Calendar. However, we pray, and hope our prayers are heard, that COVID-19 will disappear as quickly as it came. Please join us in those prayers, and watch for updates as our Executive Director sends out text message notices.

San Clemente Villas Evolving Preventative Response to COVID-19

As the response to COVID-19 continues to evolve, we are amending our responses to keep up with each new update.  With guidance from the CDC, WHO and Federal, State and County government and public health organizations, we are working hard to anticipate and implement ongoing preventative measures.  As we all continue to better understand how to help slow the spread of COVID-19, we are focused on doing all we can to help protect our communities, our residents and staff.

At San Clemente Villas by the Sea, the health and wellness of our residents and staff is our top priority and for that reason we have made the difficult but necessary decision to limit resident visits to only essential visitors. We are asking all non-essential visits to be postponed to a later date. 

Essential Visitors Are Defined As: Adults over the age of 18 who are medical providers, hospice care providers, or visitors of residents who are at the end of life.

  • All essential visitors must stop at the Concierge Desk, answer detailed health and travel screening questions and have their temperature read.
  • Those essential visitors that do not pass the screening process or have a fever greater than 100.4 will not be allowed to visit.
  • Essential visitors should visit in resident’s room, not in common areas and follow appropriate precautionary and social distancing measures.

We have also temporarily suspended dining in our onsite dining rooms. Instead, we will be providing residents a selection of menu choices through complimentary room service delivered directly to their apartment at no additional charge.

We have increased the frequency of our extensive cleaning procedures beyond our previously implemented precautionary measures.  Our staff’s consistent and purposeful approach has helped reassure our residents and families that we are working around the clock to ensure their wellbeing.

As we navigate these new guidelines together, staying connected is now more important than at any other time. Within our communities, we are helping our residents embrace technology, such as setting up FaceTime and Skype options with family and friends, helping to navigate online orders or even trying out virtual classes. For our families, we have initiated a new contact system called Call-Em-All.  This system allows us to send you text messages with updates regarding measures being taken to protect our residents during this time. We will also continue to post updates here on our website.

March 2020 Employee of the Month

Dollie Dayacap DayAna Mendoza

Ana Mendoza is an amazing caregiver here at San Clemente Villas. Ana is from San Luis Potosí Mexico. She came to California about 10 years ago from Mexico. She began to work at San Clemente Villas when one of the previous employees recommended it to her. She came to apply and got hired within a few days. In August it will be eight years since she started as an employee in the West Indies department. Ana is currently living with her brother and father. Her mom and three sisters live in Mexico. She likes to go visit them when she gets the time to take off work. Ana just got married last year. She met her husband Jose, eight years ago in Mexico. Together they like to travel to different spots in Mexico. She is planning on taking a trip to Cancun with him. Ana loves to shop. Her favorite places include Burlington, Marshalls and T.J. Maxx. Right now her goals are to study to get her CNA certification and then later become a nurse. She is passionate about people and making connections with them. That is why she loves to work here at the Villas. She says she loves to talk to the residents about their life stories and getting to learn from them. She thinks of the residents as her family. She doesn’t have her grandparents close, so she feels as if she is blessed to be around the elders. She believes that in order to have a job as a caregiver you must be patient, and caring and understanding about the needs of the residents. We are very grateful to have her here as part of the staff. Congratulations on being chosen “Employee of the Month” Ana!

Dollie Dayacap DayDollie Dayacap-Day

Dollie is an extraordinary woman and employee here at San Clemente Villas. She has been with us for coming on 13 years on May 11th. When she started back in 2007, she began as a caregiver for 1-2 months and then moved on to becoming a Med-Tech for the rest of the years. She’s worked here in assisted living for ten years and three years in WI. Her hobbies include dancing. She likes anything, from classical swing to modern pop and hip hop. Dollie is the life of the party! She likes to listen to mellow music and relax as well. She is a mother of four, 3 daughters and 1 son. Dollie says that thanks to the Villas and the years she’s worked here, her daughter Maxine is now a dentist in the Philippines. That is something she will always be grateful for. The other 3 children also graduated college. She is a proud mother. Dollie wants nothing more but to see her children be happy and choose the right person to share life with. She says that she has really enjoyed the years that she has worked here in the Villas and claims, “As long as the Villas is here, I will be here forever.” She says that every day is a learning experience. She is so grateful for the people she has met here. Dollie says that she gets along with many different types of people. With a smile, Dollie says that when people learn that she is a Med-Tech at the Villas they treat her even better. She said San Clemente Villas is like her “bread and butter.” Dollie is a faith-filled woman and her only wish in life is to keep on enjoying life for the rest of her years. “God is so good, he guides me every day. I wake up every morning thanking him for life.” We are very lucky to have Dollie as an employee here at the Villas. Her energy is a light to all who live here and the ones who work with her as well.

December 2019 Employee of the Month

2019Marina GomezMarina Gomez

Marina Gomez is an amazing woman, mother, friend, grandmother and employee at the Villas. She is a very patient, extraordinary human being. Those are some of the many reasons why she has been chosen for this month’s Employee of the month. Marina was born in Nayarit, Mexico. She is a mother of 5: 4 girls, and 2 boys. She is a grandmother of 10 grandchildren. In her spare time she likes to visit them and care for them. Her youngest grandchild is 18 months and oldest granddaughter is 14 years old. She enjoys taking her to Starbucks to have grandmother and granddaughter time. Marina is part of a Catholic Spanish Catechism Ministry called “Jovenes para Cristo.” She is involved in a prayer group where she enjoys prayer and bringing people to Christ. She is a woman full of faith and hope. She values family and is very proud of the accomplishments in their lives. Marina has a family full of scholars, scientists, artists, athletes etc. Marina has been devoted to her job as a housekeeper since March, 2011. She was first introduced to this place by bringing her grandchild to an Easter photoshoot. She was invited by our driver Alicia Aguilar, who had worked with her in her previous job. As soon as she walked in she noticed the warmth and love in the atmosphere. So Alicia told her to apply because she also loved it very much here. Marina mentioned that in a previous position she did not feel the same type of resident care and service that she sees here and she is very thankful for that. The top thing that she loves about the Villas are the activities provided here and how the residents engage especially to get up and dance even when they are in wheelchairs. “It’s a very beautiful thing to see.” Marina values serving others as she truly believes that everything she does, she does for the Lord. (Colossians 3:23). She says that she never likes to take days off because she loves what she does. “Whatever you do in your life you must do with grace and gratitude towards God.” She also believes that each person is placed to serve as a part of a community that is good for the soul and she believes she has found that place here in a senior community.

September 2019 Employee of the Month

Rosario Hernandez2Rosario Hernandez

Rosario was born in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico. She came from a big family of 16 siblings. Rosario is number 6 on the younger end. She came to the U.S. about 35 years ago with her family. Her dad was born in the U.S. and would go every year to work here, then in December he would go back to Mexico and stay with the family for a couple of months. Eventually her dad got the necessary papers to bring the family to the U.S. Once they all came, the family members each got jobs. Rosario and a sister first worked at San Clemente Ranch, packing tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. She worked for about 6 months there, but then got laid off because they didn’t have any more to harvest. Then she started another job as a seamstress for many years. Rosario has three children, sons Uriel and Osvaldo and daughter Crystal. Rosario loves working at the Villas because the residents are really nice. She feels that they are so grateful for the care she does for them, and for her that means a lot. She’s been at the Villas more than 12 years. She’s really happy working with the residents and says, “We have really nice residents, we really do.” Rosario, you’ve been Employee of the Month in the past, and are most deserving of it again! Thank you for your service and your loyalty to the Villas and to the residents.

A Father's Day Tribute

young paul brazeaupaul and car

Paul Brazeau

paul brazeau and leslieI am proud to call myself one of the daughters of Paul Brazeau. He was the strongest man I knew and brought strength to our family and people around him! It is very painful to lose a loved one. My father was always there for me and so many others. I was fortunate to be able to spend time with him when he needed me the most. These precious memories will last a life time!

paul brazeauA father to me is a man that can be dedicated to a lifelong responsibility, whose guidance, strength and love grows throughout our life. He gives you room to grow and make mistakes but somehow keeps you from stumbling along the way. The older I get the wiser my father seemed to be to me!

Jessica CalderonJessica Calderon

Jessica was born at Mission Hospital. She lived in San Juan at the time, and still does - with both of her parents, one brother, and two sisters. Jessica is the oldest. She graduated from San Juan Hills High School in 2017, where she was in dance for all four years of high school. While she was in high school she took medical classes for a couple of years. She did her internship at Aegis down the street and fell in love with the type of work and the residents. But since she has family that works at the Villas, all three of her mom’s sisters, she applied here. She applied for server, and is now working full time in the dining room. Jessica loves to go out with her friends. If Jessica could do anything, she’d go to college and become a Pediatrician - she loves kids. Jessica loves the Villas, loves working here, and really enjoys talking to the residents, and hearing about their life stories. Congratulations, Jessica! You were chosen for your excellent work ethic and attitude. You are very much appreciated!

Gabriel BarreraGabriel Barrera

Gabriel was born in Cuernavaca,Mexico. That’s 45 minutes south of Mexico City. They call Cuernavaca, the City of Eternal Spring because of its temperate climate. Gabriel went to school there through high school. He also went to college in Cuernavaca to the Instituto Lopez Ortega, and then to Mexico City to the University of La Salle. Gabriel graduated with a degree in Family Counseling and got the equivalent of a masters then in Brain Development. Gabriel met his friend Emma in 1968 in Cuernavaca when he was just 8 years old. They were friends until they became 16, at which time they became girlfriend and boyfriend.

January 25th, 1975 is the first time Gabriel came to the U.S. He was 14 years old. He came with a brother to a brother who lived here. When he got here he worked for 8 months as a dishwasher and busboy. He then went back to Mexico to school, finishing high school. He then came back to the U.S. He worked as a cook/waiter/bartender at the “Towers” restaurant in Laguna Beach. When he was 20 he became a sous chef. But he found the kitchen wasn’t his first love. He also worked for Las Brisas as a bartender and a waiter from 1981 to 1983. Then Gabriel went back to Mexico, found his ex-girlfriend who was about to get married (Gabriel had been gone almost 5 years living “La Vida Loca”) but the wedding was postponed because her grandmother had passed away. She had seen Gabriel in town, called him, and they started talking and as Gabriel puts it: everything changed. Three months later the two got married. The couple went on to have four children in Cuernavaca and their fifth child was born in the United States. Gabriel stayed in Mexico and finished college. Then in July of 1988 Gabriel, Emma, Gabriel Jr, Arturo, Karen and Alberto came to the U.S. not planning on returning to Mexico. Gabriel started off by helping his brother with his restaurant in El Toro. He was simultaneously working for LosAliso apartments where he was living. Then in 1999 his daughter Mariana was born. Then his brother sold the restaurant and Gabriel moved to working at a bakery as a mechanic and driver. Then he moved to working for Cox communications where he worked for 15 years as a facilities project coordinator. The family moved to San Juan Capistrano by the Mission. In 2010 the family moved to Village San Juan where he now lives.

Gabriel actually came to work at the Villas through his wife who was a case manager for a company that helps seniors. He heard we were looking for a maintenance person and he applied, and the rest as they say, is history. Gabriel’s favorite part about his job is communicating with the seniors. He learns a lot. Gabriel loves working here and is grateful to be at the Villas, and the Villas is grateful to have him. Congratulations, Gabriel!

Anabel CaudilloAnabel Caudillo

Anabel was born in Mexico in Bajio de Bonillas which is about half way down into Mexico on the Gulf of Mexico side. Anabel is number 21 of her siblings. Seven of her siblings passed away before the age of three. But all 21 were born to her parents and 14 are still alive. About half of her siblings live here in the US and the other half still live in Mexico as do her parents. Anabel was 14 years old when she came to the US with her parents and siblings. She went to San Clemente High School and graduated. Her first job was in a hotel doing housekeeping. She also worked at the 99 Cent Store in San Clemente as a cashier. Anabel came to the Villas on the recommendation of our previous housekeeper, Angelina. When Anabel applied we had a need for a full-time housekeeper, and Anabel immediately filled the spot! Anabel loves to take care of kids. She used to take care of them in her home. Now, she loves working with the residents as well as taking care of her own kids. She has three, Jose (11), Shayda (7) and Daniel (2). Anabel loves her job because she genuinely cares about the residents and enjoys speaking with them, and just helping them be happy here. When she’s not at work, Anabel loves to be with her family. The reason Anabel was chosen as employee of the month is because of her excellent work ethic and positive attitude. Congratulations Anabel, we appreciate you!

It’s March Madness at the Villas

Time to Refer a Friend or Relative!

We want residents, family members and friends of the community to know that now is the time to refer your friends and family to move into our community!

But why the Villas? Well, we asked a few of our residents what they love about living here, and here’s what they said.

Wayne and Sandy S. have been living at the Villas now for three years. They enjoy the social hour three days a week. They love both listening and dancing to the music. They also love how friendly everyone is.

Dot W. has been living here for two years and says she enjoys everything, but especially going on our outings.

Elba J. has been here for two years and she, too, loves how friendly everyone is, the residents, the family members and the employees. And she made it very clear how much she loves to dance! There are certainly lots and lots of opportunities to do that at the Villas! Elba’s great.

When Dianna or Esmeralda in marketing are touring a prospective resident, Elba is always so friendly, stopping to tell them how much she loves living here.

And for our Residents we’d like to say that with many new residents comes a need for more resident ambassadors. If you’ve lived here 6 months or more and want to be a buddy to a new resident, showing them the building, and the “ropes”, come see Dianna or Esmeralda in the Marketing Office. We’ve got a special treat for you for helping out!

Carlos CarrilloCarlos Carrillo

Carlos was born in San Clemente (yes, in the hospital that closed) in October of 1986. He lived in San Juan with his family which consisted of his mom, dad, two brothers and one sister. Growing up he went to Capo Valley High School. In high school Carlos was into baseball.

While in high school Carlos had aspirations to go to college and get his plumbing license, which he still wants to do. But during that time his parents returned to Mexico, and took Carlos with them. He was only there for a year, though, and returned in 2002. While in high school (2003-2005) he worked for the school district in maintenance. After graduating Carlos went to work for a plumbing company for eight years. During that time he heard of an opening at the Villas. He applied on January 18th, 2018, and he’s been a beloved employee ever since. Carlos favorite thing to do while not working is to be with his son,Angel, age 6, and take him places. Carlos loves to travel to see his mom and dad in Mexico. He also travels to Texas to see other family members. He is close to his brothers and sister who live close by.

Carlos loves working at the Villas. He loves helping people, and that’s obvious! We’re grateful you are here Carlos!

Rosario HernandezRosario Hernandez

Rosario was born in Leon, Guanajuato Mexico. There she lived with her family. She was in the youngest five of 16 kids. She was 20 when she left Mexico, when she came to San Clemente with her parents. She began to work at San Clemente Ranch, packing tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. They worked for only about 6 months and then got laid off. So Rosario started to look for another job. She got a job as a busser, but the work turned out to be too heavy for her. Then she found a job as a seamstress, making bikini bathing suits. She worked there for 12 years. Five years into this job, they put her in charge of quality control over 30 people. Then she moved to San Bernardino with her three children and their father. She lived there more than 10 years. But the recession came and the family lost their business and house. So Rosario moved back to San Clemente and applied at the Villas at the encouragement of Martha (works now as caregiver in PM shift – she’s Rosario’s sister-in-law) who told her they were hiring housekeepers and caregivers. Rosario applied for caregiver May of 2007. She didn’t have any experience, and she was told she was on probation for a month. She passed her probation, and Rosario was happy, she was now a caregiver. When she came, the job was so different - but she decided, “I’m going to give care like I’d give to my mom.” She says when she sees the happy faces of the residents, because of her care, it means a LOT to her. They say, “You’re wonderful, you give such good care.” That’s means so much to her. She says, “That’s why I’m still here. I love my job. I’m here, I’m doing something with my life.” If Rosario could, she would study interior design. While in San Bernardino she fixed up her home, and realized she had a knack and a love for it. Well, Rosario there’s good reason you are Employee of the Month. We all appreciate you so much! Congratulations!
