A Comfortable Nursing Home Alternative

Enhanced Assisted Living Handles Complex Care

Carlton Senior Living offers seniors a unique, apartment-living alternative to traditional nursing homes. Our 24-hour nursing care programs – which operate within the warm, nurturing environment of Carlton’s senior living communities – are designed to take ordinary assisted living to the next level.

Smaller, intimate settings

Our Enhanced Assisted Living program – which shares part of our Sacramento senior living campus, and part of our Downtown Pleasant Hill community –is deliberately smaller and more intimate in scale than most senior communities. Many of the program’s 56 two-story apartments in Sacramento, for instance, have doors that open onto an interior courtyard, giving residents easy access to common areas and improving the staff’s ability to monitor their well-being. Cathedral ceilings and a lush indoor atrium further enhance the atmosphere of tranquility and comfort.

Our on-site nursing staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to coordinate care, monitor residents’ health, and carry out physicians’ orders for injections and medication management. Additional support services are available to seniors needing help with bathing and other daily living activities or with mobility management through durable medical equipment.

All of our personal caregivers have received extensive training through Carlton University, which enhances their understanding of appropriate care techniques for a variety of ailments. Other award-winning care programs include diabetes management and balance fitness, which is especially beneficial for residents for patients with neuromuscular conditions such as ALS, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy or Parkinson’s disease.

Additional Care Services

Medical Director: Although California assisted living communities are not required to have a medical director, Carlton works with Dr. Charanjit Sandhu, a long-time Sacramento practitioner certified in internal medicine who practices “concierge medicine,” giving patients more of his time and attention for a pre-negotiated fee.

Physical Therapy: David Clawson, master of physical therapy, has an office at Carlton’s Sacramento senior living community, where residents can get treatment to improve or regain physical abilities and mobility after strokes, surgery, or injury.

Electronic medication records: Our trained medication technicians use this technology to better manage residents’ medication and improve quality of care.

Onsite Ambulance: An ambulance service posts paramedics and emergency medical technicians at the communities to provide care and transport to seniors (including those with dementia).

Hospice: Carlton Senior Living also has state approval to provide hospice care and services to residents and their families.
