For over 25 years, Carlton has provided exceptional living environments, tantalizing meals, individualized “Personal Expressions” activities, and lavish services and amenities; all delivered with old-fashioned courtesy and respect.
Carlton Plaza Sacramento is a vibrant community providing quality independent and assisted living as well as outstanding memory care.
It’s all about choices, starting with your preference of apartment type. There are alcove studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans from which to choose. As a resident, you’ll maintain your privacy and autonomy and be encouraged to remain as independent as possible.
Join other residents in the spacious living room, which features a fireplace and grand piano and is a favorite gathering place for socializing, engaging in activities or enjoying entertainers, speakers and events.
The exceptional dining program creates a savored experience for residents and guests. It features all-day dining and restaurant-style service. The menu is comprised of a variety of meal options, including healthy choices as well as diabetes-friendly selections. A café also is stocked with fruit and other snacks during the day and evening, while beverages are always available. A lavish Sunday brunch buffet is offered monthly.
You’ll have lots of opportunities to make friends among interesting peers and share laughs, fun and daily life. Through the enriching “Personal Expressions” program, you’ll be able to pursue fulfillment based on our own interests and hobbies – painting, gardening, fitness, card playing, and so on.
And, equally important, assistance with daily living activities is available if and when you need it. Staff is onsite 24 hours each day. Highly trained medication technicians are able to manage your medications, while skilled and experienced caregivers help with bathing and dressing, and see to your health-related care and wellness. As your needs change, your services can be adjusted accordingly. Unlike many other assisted living communities, Carlton Plaza Sacramento serves seniors with diabetes and has a special program to assist residents with diabetes management. Even higher levels of assistance are available on our shared campus at Carlton Crown Plaza.
There also is a smaller, quaint environment within Carlton Plaza where superior care for seniors with dementia-related needs is provided. It includes a center courtyard and garden. Entrances and exits utilize delayed egress and monitoring technology. Residents are able to enjoy LIFE – Letting Individuality Freely Exist – the featured person-centered philosophy and approach to care. LIFE values all people as unique, recognizes individual viewpoints and honors the connection among us all. Service is provided using best practices in dementia care as well as state-of-the-art sensory integration such as aroma therapy, waterfalls and music, as well as such therapeutic tools as art, pet visits, life stories, and spiritual support.
Additionally, short-term or respite stays can be arranged to give family caregivers a break from these responsibilities or as a trial residency.
The variety of amenities, care and services make Carlton Plaza Sacramento an exceptional choice for you, now and into the future. Plus, you can relax about your decision since we provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!
What people are saying about Carlton Plaza Sacramento

Carlton Plaza and Carlton Crown Plaza Sacramento, communities offering assisted living, are committed to the well-being of each resident. The State of California licenses assisted living communities, but allows each provider to determine the range of health-related care they will make available.
From its inception, Carlton Senior Living decided to offer the broadest spectrum of care allowable. This makes CSL better able to meet residents’ chronic and long-term care needs. Below is a description of the added services at Carlton’s Sacramento communities that allow them to go the extra mile in delivering exceptional care.
While under no obligation from the state licensing agency to have a medical director in an assisted living community, the Plazas have chosen to establish that relationship with Andrew J. Tak, M.D. His advice to the wellness team allows for cohesive oversight of each resident’s well-being. Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Tak is a long-time practitioner in the Sacramento region. He prides himself on an approach to medicine that allows him “to meet patients varied needs and to care for their mind, whole body and spirit.” He also embraces the concept of “concierge medicine,” which allows his patients to receive more of his time and attention for an already negotiated fee that frequently lowers their annual spending on doctor’s visits.
Staff nurses, both RNs and LVNs, are able to coordinate care, monitor resident’s health status, and follow physicians’ orders for injections, and manage medication. They also train personal caregiving staff and, at Carlton Crown Plaza, are available onsite 24-hours each day. This allows the Plazas to accept and
retain residents with greater health-related needs as well as comprehensively manage their care. It also assures that a skilled professional is quickly available should emergencies arise.
Both communities also manage residents’ medication using specially trained Medication Technicians and cutting-edge electronic medication administration records (eMARS) technology. This helps minimize medication errors, increase staff efficiency, provide comprehensive documentation and improve quality of care.
Our Resident Liaison acts as the “point person” for family members, so families can receive up-to-date information about their loved one and solve concerns that may arise. Family involvement in the life of the community is highly encouraged.
Clinical Services Consultants
The communities’ wellness teams are supported and educated by CSL Home Office staff—four full-time, dedicated consultants with expertise in clinical services management, policy development, dementia care and medications management. Communities can call upon these professionals when questions arise or when they would like added information, references and resources. Additionally, the consultants routinely monitor clinical operations for quality assurance.
Award-Winning Care Programs
The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA), the national trade association which represents assisted living providers, periodically bestows “Best Of” awards for programs of merit. So far, Carlton Senior Living has been honored with three awards, including:
- Advanced Caregiver Training (ACT), which provides the entire personal caregiving staff with additional training on conditions and diseases common among the elderly. Increased understanding better enables them to assist with care related to strokes, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, arthritis complications, Parkinson’s disease, and other disorders.
- Diabetes Management Program, which is designed to assist residents to live better with their diabetes on a day-to-day basis. It includes services from licensed vocational nurses as well as medication management.
- Balance Fitness and Mobility Assistance, which includes risk assessment, opportunities for fitness training, healthy walking classes and educational seminars to promote enhanced resident mindfulness as they move around their apartment and the community at large.
LiFE Memory Care
Within Carlton Plaza is a smaller, quaint environment designed to provide superior care for seniors with dementia-related needs. Residents are able to enjoy LIFE — Letting Individuality Freely Exist — a person-centered approach to care which values all people as unique, recognizes individual viewpoints and honors the connection among us all. The program utilizes dementia care best practices as well as state-of-the-art sensory integration and therapeutic treatment tools.
David T. Clawson, M.P.T., maintains an office in Carlton Plaza where he uses specially designed exercises, treatment and equipment to help residents and other local seniors improve or regain physical abilities and mobility after a stroke, surgery or injury. He has practiced in the Sacramento region for over 20 years, including seven as director of rehabilitation in skilled nursing care.
Onsite Ambulance Service
AlphaOne Ambulance Service posts paramedics and emergency medical technicians at the communities. These professionals specialize in providing routine care and transport to seniors (including those with dementia), but are also on hand to offer emergency assistance, if needed.
Both Carlton Plaza and Crown Plaza have received approval from the state licensing agency to allow hospice care and services. This support is made available to residents in the final phase of a terminal illness. The focus is on comfort and quality of life for the resident and his or her family.
When seniors choose to make their home at Carlton or Crown Plaza Sacramento, they, as well as their families, can feel confident in the experienced, capable and caring staff who do their utmost to ensure beloved residents are well cared for. Plus, they have the added peace of mind of knowing that CSL provides a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee!
