Marketing Check-in: Happy 4th of July

ezmeralda lopez dianna mendoza

It’s unbelievable to say we’re in July already. Due to Quarantine I feel that half of the year just went by and we didn’t even notice. COVID-19 brought me closer to my family and it reminded me that I need to stop and reach out to family whom I hadn’t visited in a long time. I picked up my phone and called a lot of my aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends to make sure they were doing well and see if they needed anything. At home we have been spending a lot of time together watching movies, listening to music and even playing board games together - something we hadn’t done in a long time. Both my kids got to get home-schooled by their aunt. At first it was all very nice, but after a while my sister-in-law would tell me “I don’t know how these teachers do it!” I laughed at first and then when I took a couple days off work and helped her at home I was ready to get back to work as soon as possible. I would like to say thank you to all the essential workers here at San Clemente Villas. Thank you for all you do. And a big thank you to all the nurses, doctors, grocery store workers, and first responders - all of you are there for us. 2020 is a year we will never forget and I feel like it has brought all of us closer together and we will continue to get through it together.

July 2020 Employee of the Month

John McKownJohn McKown

John is a worker that we consider to be a big asset to our team. He is an incredible employee recognized and elected by both his co-workers and residents. He is a kind man full of soul and compassion. Let me tell you a little bit more about why John is this month’s employee of the month. John was born in Torrance, California. He is the only boy and has three sisters that he went to school with. He was raised in San Pedro and graduated from San Pedro High School. He was born on the hottest day on record in Torrance on September 1st, 1955. Growing up he was introduced to surfing and fell in love with it. He traveled all over the world to surf. Places like the North Shore of Hawaii, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and many more places. He went to Saddleback College and got his Associate degree. He worked for AT&T for 36 years. Then he retired, but decided to still pick up another job because his wife is a paralegal who won’t stop working. So he decided that the best fit would be to work in a retirement home because his mother-in-law was in an assisted living place and he loved the way they were treating her, so he wanted to be a part of something like that. He also had a VERY, very deep love for his grandparents so he thought it would be a perfect fit. He says that he absolutely loves working here at San Clemente Villas. He loves the family atmosphere, the residents and his coworkers. He believes that “whatever little he gives to people comes back to him tenfold.” One thing he highly emphasized is that the biggest treasure he has is his wife Lori and “when you get me, you get her, because she’s the one that sends the little gifts like the soaps and the chocolates. She’s very generous and she loves to share and I love to share it with her.” They’ve been married almost 37 years. They are both HUGE animal lovers and absolutely love people & cherish friendships. John would like to add that he is so grateful to be a part of such a lovely work place with people he feels are like one great big family. Congratulations John on being Employee of the Month!

Marketing Check-in: Happy Father's Day

ezmeralda lopez dianna mendoza

A Father Means:

A father means so many things…
An understanding heart,
A source of strength and support
Right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness,
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too.
A father means so many things when he’s a man like you

June 2020 Employee of the Month

Pedro RuizPedro Ruiz

Pedro has been working at the Villas since 2002, in fact, since San Clemente Villas first opened! He started working here because of Paul and Aileen. He used to work at Baker’s Square. Paul and Aileen would take all of their employees to eat there so Paul hired Pedro because he loved his cooking. Pedro explains that Baker’s Square was like a Carrow’s or Denny’s, a casual place to spend time and eat great food. Pedro has two daughters and two grandchildren. As a pastime, Pedro likes to go fishing. One time he was fishing at the Harbor and was about to throw the bait over and Aileen and Paul just so happened to pass by walking their dog, and their dog munched all of the bait up. So Paul and Aileen would always remind him of that story and they laughed about it a lot. Pedro likes working here because he wants the residents to eat appetizing food and receive good service. Pedro would like to share that he likes to enjoy life and go out to meet the world. He likes to travel to Mexico. The farthest south he’s been has been Colombia. We are very happy to have Pedro as part of the Staff. Congratulations on being Employee of the Month, Pedro!

Meet the Nurses

We have some new faces here at the 'Villas!

Kristin Rodriguez - Wellness Nurse

I am a California native. I was born in Long Beach. I graduate from Long Beach Poly. After I graduated I joined the Air Force and was a MWR- Morale welfare and recre- ation specialist. My job duties in- cluded working the fitness center and in the mortuary. I was released with an honorable discharge due to pregnancy. I stayed home and raised my three children and then in 2006 I started part time nursing school. I graduated in 2009 and then started working at Villa Valencia as a med tech and then became the Wellness Nurse there until coming to San Clemente Villas by the Sea. My dad was a nurse in the cardiac cath lab. I was able to watch an open heart sur- gery and then knew I wanted to be a nurse. I choose to work in assisted living instead of being a cardiac nurse because while in nursing school working with the eld- erly population was so rewarding. My goal is to become an RN in the future. I love what I do each and every day.

 

Cara Deiro - Director of Clinical Services

My favorite animals are Horses and English Bull dogs. I was born in Memphis Tennessee down the street from Elvis Presley. My dad was in the Marines and we move to the El Toro Marine base when I was 13. My Grandmother and my mother were both nurses and my great great Grandfather was a Doctor in Silerton Tennessee. I grew up hanging out at hos- pitals and nursing homes. At the age of 16 I became a Certified Nursing Assistant and worked in skilled nursing with my mom as my supervisor. My senior year of High School I completed a Medical Assistant program and went to work for a dermatologist and became a surgical assistant. I graduated Nursing school in 1993 and worked for Lake Forest Nursing Center for 17 years as an LVN and Di- rector of Staff Development. I have been in management most of my nursing career in skilled nursing and Assisted Living communities. I be- lieve that Nursing is the Gentle Art of caring. It is my passion in life to follow my family’s footsteps and doing what I can to enhance the lives of the residents I care for each and every day. Any Questions or con- cerns, please feel free to reach out to me at the community or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If it is urgent in nature and I am off the premises please have the front desk call me and I will gladly return your call.

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.

Marketing Check-in: Happy Easter

ezmeralda lopez dianna mendoza

Holidays are many things to many people. For some, the primary function of a holiday is its religious significance. It is a time when specific spiritual opportunities are available to experience. For others, holidays are primarily about family getting together. Most people do not work and so there is an opportunity to renew family bonds. Relatives that you haven't seen in a while join together with you to celebrate the family that you belong to. People that do not have large families or may not want to join together with them may celebrate with friends. Enjoy this time with your loved ones and remember to always tell them how much they mean to you and how much you love them. (Be sure to see our Notary Ad in our April newsletter.)

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.

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!

February 2020 Employee of the Month

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.

Marketing Check-in: Happy New Year 2020!

ezmeralda lopez dianna mendoza

Happy New Year 2020!

It’s a new Decade! Dianna and Esme would love to wish you a prosperous and healthy 2020! The New Year is bittersweet. It is nice to go forward and make resolutions but it is sad to see another year slip by. I’m making the resolution to slow down and experience pleasurable moments a little longer especially with my kids. Time passes by very quickly and we tend to forget to really enjoy life and our surroundings more. We are so happy and blessed to have gained a lot of new residents this past year and looking forward to the new resident’s that will be moving in this next year. At the villas we have many events throughout the year where you can come enjoy the music, try our dining room, visit with residents, and enjoy each other’s company. One thing that I love about San Clemente Villas is that we are all a family here.

We wish you the best and brightest New Year!

Marketing Check-in: Welcome December!

ezmeralda lopez dianna mendoza

Welcome December!

Being Santa!

Being Santa must be fun!

Giving gifts to everyone

And riding on a magic sleigh

Jingle jingle all the way.

He’s read a billion Christmas lists,

Employed some elves to wrap the gifts,

Fed the reindeer, tied his boots

And slipped into his nice red suit.

Setting out on Christmas Eve,

Flying over towns and trees,

To every place, down every road

To all the children round the globe.

It’s such a feat of dedication

Speeding to each destination

With a smile upon his face

Then onwards, to another place.

When he’s been all round the world

To every boy and every girl

And left some presents to be found,

His work is done; he’s homeward bound!

Mince pies and milk, he’s had plenty.

His heart is full, his sack is empty.

He cheers as he returns, a winner.

Home in time for Christmas dinner!

“Being Santa” is a short Christmas poem

by English Poet, Ms Moem

Merry Christmas to everyone from Dianna Mendoza and Esmeralda Lopez

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.

Marketing Check-in: Welcome November!

ezmeralda lopez dianna mendoza

Welcome November!

I am so thankful for my family, my brother and nieces, my sister in laws and my friends. I am grateful for my job, health and the amazing experiences I have had in my life. But most of all I am grateful for the incredible parents I had. Esmeralda Lopez

A Thanksgiving Poem
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump
May your potatoes and gravy
Have not even one lump
May your yams be delicious
May your pies take the prize
But most of all…
May your Thanksgiving dinner
STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!!

Marketing Check-in: Welcome October!

ezmeralda lopez dianna mendoza

Welcome October!

Falling leaves are summer waving goodbye. So that means that this month calls for colder weather, hot cocoa, warm blankets, cozy sweaters and everyone preparing for a spooky Halloween. It’s always fun to be a part of Halloween. Whether it’s preparing your home with all the scary decorations, lights, chocolates and candies or being the parent/grandparent taking the kids out to trick-or-treat, seeing their gleaming faces when receiving treats and how astounded they are by all the décor, lights, and others costumes. Here at San Clemente Villas, we hope everyone has a safe and HAPPY HALLOWEEN. We also wish San Clemente Villas a Happy 17th Anniversary!

OCTOBER

THE MONTH OF OCTOBER,
THE AIR TURNS COLD.
THE LEAVES ARE ALL CHANGING,
TO RED AND TO GOLD.
THE MONTH OF OCTOBER,
AND PUMKINS I’VE SEEN.
THEY’RE OUT TRICK OR TREATING,
IT’S NOW HALLOWEEN
[to the tune of “On Top of Old Smokey”]
