G

enerations Healthcare was founded upon the belief that caring for the sick, the elderly, and the infirm is a special

and sacred stewardship. It is our mission to have this belief reflected in everything we do: in the presentation of

our homes, in the professionalism of our staff, and in the daily delivery of care to our residents and their families.

It is our purpose that whoever enters a Generations home will be met with kindness, competence, and compassion.

We are Caring for a Lifetime: a Lifetime of Memories, a Lifetime of Care, a Lifetime of Love.

About Lompoc Skilled Nursing

Lompoc Skilled Nursing is a 120-bed skilled nursing facility, focusing primarily on post-hospitalization transitional

care. Our greatest success is the ability to help patients recover and discharge back to home or to a lower level of care. We

employ our own therapists and operate a large, fully contained therapy unit. Together, with our nursing staff, our goal is

to help patients achieve their highest level of functional independence.

We are licensed by both the California State Department of Health and the Federal Government. As such, our staff pro-

vides 24-hour-a-day nursing care and supervision to our patients. These services include assistance with activities of daily

living (dressing, bathing, grooming, transfers, ambulation, etc.), feeding or assistance with meals, giving of medications,

treatments, etc. The level of services provided to an individual patient can vary greatly depending on that patient’s needs.

Licensed nursing staff members are on duty 24 hours a day and work with a team of trained nursing assistants in provid-

ing the nursing care for our patients.
