New West Haven is now offering transportation services for seniors within El Dorado County. With busy schedules and unpredictable doctor and dentist waiting room times it may not be practical to drive your loved one to and from medical appointments. Now seniors within El Dorado County may schedule transport assistance from us. Our drivers are held to the same high standards you have come to expect and are fingerprint cleared and specially trained to assist seniors. For more information and rates, please contact Carrie Walter, cwalter@newwesthaven.com or 530-677-2979 ext. 305.

NFL Sundays at New West Haven

We are making Sunday’s special. If you enjoy watching football, why not swing by and watch it with someone special. During the season, we will be firing up the smoker, throwing tasty treats on the barbecue and rolling out classic tailgate treats (including complimentary beer and wine) every Sunday.

New West Haven is updating and improving it’s website.

We have big plans for integrating Social Media features that will allow users and potential users to login with their Social accounts as well as track, like, tweet, share easily.  As well adding quality content relevant to our users,  customers, customer’s friends and family, and anyone else.   Please feel free to comment and add suggestions or thoughts.

The New West Haven website is also planning on a regular newsletter to keep its friends and users updated with what is going on in the area as well as topics we think might be useful.  The Newsletter should be coming out shortly.   We will try to keep copies of older Newsletters available just in case you missed something and want to look it up.  We will do that on our Newsletter Page.

We are also planning on expanding our “Resources Page” to list useful people, groups, services, etc. that might be relevant to our users/subscribers.   This is where we could really use some help.  If you know of any resources that you believe are relevant and you can recommend personally  PLEASE do.  Over time we would like to build our “Resources Page” to reflect what we, our clients, and our users agree are the BEST.  To know that we need to hear from you.

New West Haven is in the final stages of planning the expansion for our new assisted living wing located in Cameron Park, CA. Over the past four years we have been preparing to expand. As the economy recovers, we are finalizing our plans. In short, we will be adding approximately 7500SF of assisted living space to our location. The new wing will have 15 private units, a resident’s kitchen, great room and dining room. Improvements will also be made to the grounds including a community garden, outdoor fireplaces, a new patio and two new balcony areas for residents and their families to enjoy. Final plans have been submitted to the building department and we are awaiting permits.
