Best Choice
I most definitely recommend the facility. Every single staff member we met were extremely friendly. When someone heard me walking behind, she stopped and turned around to acknowledge me. I originally put my sister in law into a one bedroom apartment for assisted living. However, after the first ten days, [name removed], the on-site managing nurse, and I agreed that memory care would be better. So we made another move. The transition was seamless and the quality of care she is receiving is exceptional. My sister in law is so happy as they get her up every morning and she is engaged in a full day of activities. I cannot say enough about the quality of the entire staff. The food isn't great, though there are options to choose from. I expected it to be relatively bland to meet most dietary needs, but it's basically institutional food. However, it is restaurant style which makes for a pleasant overall experience. I looked at several assisted living facilities and found many were previously hotels, which is exactly how it felt inside. Carmel Village was initially an apartment complex, so it feels more homey and permanent.

Our family had an in person tour with Carmel Village and the tour experience as well as the community was all really nice, but ultimately it came down to the cost and location and that is why we did not choose it for our loved one.

We toured Carmel Village during our search for an Assisted Living facility for our loved one. The facility was good as far as the staff, cleanliness, friendliness, etc. However, it had a much more institutional feeling than other facilities that we toured.

Beautiful and accommodating
Carmel Village is a beautiful facility and we absolutely love the outdoor space - that was very important to us because we wanted our loved one to really enjoy nature. We had some challenging circumstances and the staff members were more then accommodating and flexible to work with us to really make things work. We would definitely recommend this community to other families.

A great place to retire
We think the staff members at Carmel Village are incredibly friendly and overall it has really been a good experience for our family. There are a lot of activities for the residents to do and our loved one has met so many new people. When we were touring communities, Carmel Village seemed to have a lot more residents interacting and engaging with one another. Based on our experience we would recommend this community to other families.

Warm and Welcoming Community
So far it all seems positive since my loved one moved in. I feel he is still adjusting after living at his house for over 50 yrs. But I feel it was the best decision for us. From the first day I visited Carmel Village, I was greeted with friendliness. The residents seemed happy, and the feeling I got was warmth... My intuition felt right, and so far I've been pleased.

We've had a great experience with Carmel Village. I would definitely suggest looking into it for a loved one. I like the cleanliness of the facility. The staff is very friendly and patient, which I've found very helpful. They work with you, which has been really nice. Especially in memory care, everybody is really good with helping my loved one. I feel very fortunate to have her there.

Experience has been good, but could be better
The biggest thing I would say is I wish that they provided more engaging activities for the residents. I think the staffing issues have played into this - and Covid hasn't helped either. My dad is a picky eater, so others might say that the food is better. They do what they can to accommodate him.
