Thank you for considering Somis Living I and Somis Living II in your
search for quality care for what has been aptly called, "the greatest
Somis Living I and II are Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly that offer non-medical care for our residents. Somis Living I is a 6 bed facility, while Somis Living II is a 4 bed facility. We offer our residents the warmth of a caring and loving family atmosphere where they receive the assistance needed while maintaining their highest level of independence. We encourage residents as well as their families to be involved in the planning and care for our residents.
Residents may be ambulatory or non-ambulatory. The philosophy of our facility is to provide a healthful, pleasant living environment that
promotes emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. We strive to
provide meaningful social activities and relationships, encourage and
assist residents in working towards their goals and respond promptly
and appropriately to any difficulties that may arise. We monitor
medications, both medical and psychiatric. It is our goal to provide
a family like setting where our residents feel important, safe, cared
for, listened to and accepted.
"Elder Care with a Country Flair"
This slogan is not just something we say, but that we live by. Located in the foothills of the small historic town of Somis in one of the most beautiful parts of Ventura County, Somis Living I and II have a setting that few facilities of this type can offer. We have 2 single story homes on a flat acre of park like grounds. The property is fully fenced with a remote controlled gated entry. We also have horses, chickens and other surprise critters along with abundant
wildlife that can be seen on the property on any given day. With Oak trees, over a dozen types of citrus and fruit trees, a beautiful rose
garden and other flora and fauna, it's a bird watchers paradise! From
the tiniest hummingbirds, to hawks, owls and even an occasional crane, there's always something to observe with our binoculars or spotting scope.
In addition to natures blessings, we offer a full array of other activities including board games, TV, music (especially country), puzzles, knitting, movies, karaoke, exercise activities, walks around the grounds or up the road, use of guitars and a baby grand piano! All physical activities are closely monitored and
observed by the staff. Our residents are offered various field trips
depending on their interests. For those off-site activities, we have
a handicapped equipped van with a wheelchair lift.
Compassion Dignity Respect
Our carefully selected staff will cater to the needs of each resident with love and patience. They are experienced, have had the latest
training and are genuinely caring people who love what they do.
We provide daily housekeeping and basic laundry services, 3 nutritious
home prepared meals, and snacks in between. Transportation to medical and dental appointments are included.
Somis Living is committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care. Our medical training and health care background means that your loved one will be in good hands.
My sweet loving father lived in Somis Living for the last four months of his life. I (along with my mother, two sisters and brother) are so incredibly grateful to have found this Board & Care for my father. I cannot imagine him anywhere else at all during this time period. I had a previous experience with my mother-in-law four years ago in a different Board & Care in Camarillo. Prior to taking my dad to Somis Living, I had visited about a dozen other Board & Cares. Some were very nice, some were ok and some were not. After visiting SL with my sister and mother, we knew that this was the place for my dad. The actual big home, the smaller home, the beautiful grounds, the farm animals, the open space, the secure grounds and rooms, the warm and caring attitude that was present was difficult to duplicate.
Jocelyn and Lillian give it their all to be as accommodating as possible not only to the Resident but to the entire family. They made this
extremely difficult day as easy as possible. I will be forever
grateful to them. Thank you ever so much! My entire family and I will
never forget you.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
