A good place for a loved one

The staff members are very friendly and we liked that this community does not have a cooperate approach when it comes to the care of the residents. We would recommend Carmel Village community to other.

My review of Carmel Village

Our family had an in person tour and the people we met with were very friendly. It is an older facility, but we were able to go up and see the area where the residents would be. However, we were just not really impressed, we know accidents happen within facility but it did not smell as good, but we cannot judge because once again we know it happens. We also did not like the size of the rooms, but the gentlemen who showed us around was great. The grounds were absolutely beautiful, it was prettier to us then any other place in the community we saw it was just so lovely.

my review of carmel village

This community staff is super friendly, the only issue we had is when she passed away a family heirloom was missing. The food was not the greatest but they did try to accommodate but my mom she just didn't like it. Room sizes were good, and she had her own porch. I would definitely recommend this community to others.

Happy at Carmel Village

Carmel Village is perfect for my dad! It is close to our home so we can visit frequently (besides covid). The staff has been very helpful with our requests and my dad likes where he is. Although my dad doesn’t get involved in activities they are there if he wants. The cost is very reasonable for what our family can afford (memory care unit). We are very happy he was able to get into Carmel Village!

Blame it on COVID. Lets wait and see.

Speaking from the assisted living side (not memory care) - staff generally helpful and friendly. Since COVID-19 hit, kitchen and dining room shut down, resident interactions discouraged and and family visits prohibited. Residents encouraged to remain in their room as much as possible. On the positive side, pandemic not a big impact to health at CV. Prepackaged meals delivered to residents rooms based upon resident menu selection, but meal quality taken a nosedive since 3rd qtr 2019. Many meat and poultry servings are comparable to jerky smothered in sauce or gravy. Vegetables on the warm but rare side of uncooked. Portions now smaller because residents not eating as much. Rates increased in excess of inflation in less than a years occupancy.

Thank you for your feedback and for the kind words about our team. This health crisis has certainly been difficult on our residents and team members. We are as disappointed as you are about reduced visits, activities and dining limitations. We are working hard to follow local health orders and guidelines while still creating a positive experience for our residents. We hope the residents will enjoy the creative ways we are providing safe yet engaging activities and amenities as they become available. The safety and security of our residents and employees are of upmost importance. We also strive to meet different dining needs as we understand in-room meals do not offer the same experience as our main dining room. Residents are still offered a variety of choices and requests for more of any item are always welcome. As for fees, we have been mindful to remain competitive within our industry, even during this time. If you have any further concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to the community and Executive Director. Again, thank you for your input and please stay safe!

I like the facility. I like the staff. I like the costs. I do not like the total lockdown aspect of memory care making my access difficult. I do not like the long hallway that dad must travel for his meals. I do not like that he has no access to the out of doors.

Management change

June 2018 change in management companies has resulted in a lot of turnover in the staff and some service issues. However, over the last 30 days the issues seem to be getting resolved.

CV has a very pleasant environment with sunny, wide hallways. [Name removed] was great to show us the variety of rooms and explain the different packages. The rooms had lots of natural lighting and were clean. They seemed more like rooms in a nice hotel rather than a sanatorium.

Everything is going great!!

My parents have both recently made the move into this community and so far things are going well for them. They have adjusted well and the staff where very easy to work with in this transition. I am comfortable with the care they are receiving and think this place is very organized. They have had no complaints about the meals and are starting to get involved in a few of the activities they have to offer.

In A Quite Neighborhood

Placing my in laws here was the best choice for both of them. Since moving here my mother in laws health has seemed to improve now. The community is made up of 3 separate buildings with a lovely courtyard in the middle where you can be outside and enjoy the weather. The staff is extremely nice and very accommodating. The location is set back off the main street it is very quiet. My in laws seem to like the food. The family is very pleased with this community and we would recommend the community.

Very large!

When I toured this community, I felt that it was very large and commercialized. The rooms were tiny as well, it was not what we were looking for.

I am considering this place, based on being near our home and quality. A minus is that it had no kitchenette.

Thank you so much for touring Carmel Village and writing a review. For over 15 years we consistently strive to meet our resident and family’s needs. Our one bedroom apartments come standard with a refrigerator, microwave, and sink for residents personal use. Resident meals are served in our dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner and snacks are available daily in our Bistro. Every day we offer a full Salad Bar for lighter choices. I almost forgot to mention our espresso machine for coffee lovers and several fresh made desserts every day at dinner. Please feel free to come by and taste all that Carmel Village has to offer.
