Carlton Senior Living provides senior assisted living, active independent senior apartments, and a retirement community that celebrates freedom, dignity, and independence of our residents. The Assisted Living Federation of America awarded Carlton Senior Living the 2010 Best of the Best Award for the most innovative and effective practices in terms of the senior living community. Carlton Senior living is one of only 25 recipients for this year’s award. We are proud to have received such a prestigious and nationally recognized award for what we feel is simply the best way to treat our residents and provide for their care.
Carlton Senior Living bases policies and practices for each and every retirement community we own on the best possible care for the mind, body, and soul of our residents, whether they need assisted living or enjoy our independent senior living apartments. We provide educational and intellectual stimulation through book clubs, classes, life storytelling and volunteer opportunities all meant to keep senior minds active and engaged in their community. We also provide physical activities and nature activities to nurture the body through swimming, walking, exercise, gardening, and nature center visits. To nurture the souls of our residents, we provide spiritual services, social parties and activities, arts & crafts, and cultural activities.
Retirement community living should never focus solely on the physical care of a resident. Our lives are so much more than just the physical body. Personal care on all levels, physical, mental, and spiritual both for individuals and for the entire community is what makes a community valuable to its residents. A nurturing environment that celebrates abilities and provides support for disabilities creates a positive, outstanding experience for all residents at all levels of independence. Dignity, respect, and challenging the individual set the stage for maintaining an independent lifestyle and promoting good health.
As a retirement community, Carlton Senior Living seeks to engage residents, rather than allowing them to become removed from society due to inability to participate as they once did. Life is meant to be full of activity, something many of us take for granted until we can no longer maintain the activity level with which we have become accustomed. Rather than allowing seniors to slip quietly into the background, we strive to accommodate limitations and find creative ways to continue their active lifestyle physically, mentally, and spiritually. While we are proud our practices garnered the attention of an award such as ALFA’s Best of the Best, our practices incorporate how we would want our own families treated and are simply the right thing to do.
