Lake Alhambra Center is an inviting retreat in a low-income neighborhood of Antioch. Past the gated entrance, the shady porch is skirted with impatiens, shrubs and tall trees. A small grassy area nearby is equipped with several chairs for outdoor lounging. Inside, the spacious lobby is furnished with couches, recliners, armchairs and a vibrant oriental rug. A chandelier suffuses the immaculate area with warm lighting.
Residents’ small rooms are cozy and bright. Personal decorations make each room homey. The dining area, also used for activities, opens into the living room; angled ceilings and grand windows create an open and inviting space. Meals are served from the steam table and countertops in the rear, an area designed for efficiency. Residents favor seafood entrées; they love the fried prawns! The library features two walls stocked with reading materials and sufficient furniture to accommodate social visits. Several small groups, engaged in animated conversation, took full advantage of the rest areas in the hallways.
Although Lake Alhambra does not have an activity coordinator, residents enjoy mainstays including arts and crafts, bingo and exercise. Management and staff organize monthly parties and weekly music entertainment, which thoughtfully supplement the otherwise limited calendar. In a framed letter hanging in the lobby, one family member thanked the staff for their loving kindness.
