CAMARILLO, Calif., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A sometimes overlooked effect of aging is the increased sensitivity our skin has to the sun. In our later years, skin becomes thinner, more sensitive, and more susceptible to cancerous growths. Seniors feel the damaging effects of sunlight much more harshly than their younger counterparts. Because of this, facilities for assisted living in Southern California need to be cognizant of the harsh impact of the sun's rays on their residents. Sally's Residential Care Home, located in Camarillo, understands how to answer the question, "what is a nursing home's unique challenge in a sun-rich state?" After all, assisted living in Camarillo means having over 300 days a year of sunlight and—because exercise and outdoor activity being necessities for the long-term health of seniors—Sally's Residential Care Home has come to expertly navigate this fine line.

One way in which Sally's Residential Care Home protects its residents from the onslaught of the sun's rays is by providing many options for outdoor shade. Sally's Residential Care Home is actually three closely associated houses all located in the city of Camarillo.  The homes are within walking distance of each other, Leisure Village, and various shopping centers. As seen in the pictures on the Sally's Residential Care Home website, there are many shaded paths between the homes and these destinations. These paths mean that daily exercise or inter-house socialization doesn't have to involve a lengthy trek through an oppressively sunny walkway. Similarly, Sally's Residential Care Home offers outdoor seating areas that are covered to provide a nice, relaxing atmosphere without thrusting its lively lodgers into the sunlight. Many doctors recommend that senior citizens stay out of direct sunlight between 11AM and 4PM and, at Sally's Residential Care Home, the choice doesn't have to be made between staying in or going out—there is plenty fun to be had on their shaded patios.

When the residents at Sally's Care Home want to go outside, they can do so with confidence that they'll be protected from the sun's damage by a member of the well-trained staff. Sally and Kayhan Mojabi have owned and operated Sally's Residential Care Home as a couple for well over 10 years. Both Sally and Kayhan are California board certified registered nurses and pull from more than 30 years of nursing experience between them. They run the 24/7 daily operations of Sally's Residential Care Home and part of that is guaranteeing the skin safety of their residents as the season shifts to summer. Their experience covers acute, rehab, geropsych, and hospital management and they offer frequent trainings to their team members. In the rare chance they need outside assistance for instruction, the Mojabis don't hesitate to bring in an outside expert. Combined with customized diets, medication management, and doctors' visits, Sally and Kayhan proudly present a fully comprehensive living situation for all who choose to live in Sally's Residential Care Home.
