Our Employees Are the Best

Carlton Senior Living has been serving seniors since 1985 when our first community opened. Since then, we have grown with community locations throughout Northern California. Carlton is a family-focused and founded provider of exceptional service and superior care. Our diverse programs and individually tailored services allow residents to move seamlessly between various care levels if and when their needs change. The strong foundation of our company is made possible by our outstanding staff of over 1300 employees. We are devoted to ensuring that each employee is the perfect fit for our residents. They exemplify, as we describe, the “caring gene” that defines one’s commitment to love, honor, and provide for one another through their intrinsic ability to be empathetic.

Carlton University Educates and Empowers Our Employees

Our hands-on education and training sets us apart as a company and is a true testament to our investment in our employees. Carlton University creates opportunities for all employees, both new and veteran staff, to feel encouraged, connected, empowered, supported, and successful in their roles. I believe happy, respected, and knowledgeable individuals will provide outstanding care and excellent customer service to our residents.

Carlton’s Extended Family

Upon moving in, our residents and their loved ones instantly become our extended family; in this exchange, we are rewarded with a sense of responsibility and trustworthiness. We take great pride in creating an environment where together, we celebrate the special moments and honor how you wish to, as we say, “Live Your Life.”

Carlton Senior Living is honored as one of the Best Workplaces for Aging Services, recognized as #1 in California and #2 in the Nation by Fortune.
