Carton has made The 2020 Fortune Best Workplaces for Aging Services list

For the second year Carlton Senior Living has been certified as a “Great Place to Work” by our amazing employees. The certification process includes an anonymous employee survey across all Carlton Senior Living communities. Employees completed the sixty trust index survey questions based on five aspects of trust: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. Earning this certification proves we have created an amazing employee experience and elevates our status as an employer of choice, allowing us to attract and retain top talent to care for our residents.


It takes a special group of employees to help our senior residents live their lives to the fullest, surrounded by love, kindness, and care. We believe happy employees help to ensure happy residents, and that’s why we take great care in recruiting, training, and retaining people who embrace and embody our unique “culture of caring.” We treat our staff members with respect and provide them with attractive benefits, as well as opportunities for training and advancement.
