We chose Commonwealth because of the convenient location, we liked the size of the facility, and it was very clean. Staff were also super friendly and the price was pretty reasonable as well. They have a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment it is great for what they need. I would absolutely recommend to others looking.
This is a good community in an older building. They have an app that allows you to see what your loved one did during the day.

Thank you for sharing your experience with families here. We know that choosing the right assisted living is not a decision that anyone makes lightly. We are so happy you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again soon. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. I can be reached at Jmayhew@CommonwealthSL.com.
We chose Commonwealth Senior Living because I thought it was a really good size, we looked at some bigger facilities and this one seemed like a much nicer scale where she could get to know people better. I figured the staff members got to know residents better that way as well. It is a very unusual year and my mom moved in right before covid hit, so it is hard to asses some of the programs but I know that they have them available so we are looking forward to that. I think they did a tremendous job keeping residents safe during covid and they made smart decisions and were great with communication. I would recommend to others looking.
They do have frequent activities for the residents. I would say to my friends, it seems to have been a pretty good match for my loved one and me. It has given me some relief, knowing what it would take for me to provide private care for my loved one. They are caring for my loved one well.
We chose Commonwealth Senior Living because of the location to other family members as well as it was reasonably priced compared to other facilities for what they offered. They have 3 different sections to the facility, memory care, independent living, and assisted living. My aunt was in independent living and she had a good sized apartment. When she moved into assisted living, it was more like a good sized hotel room. My favorite part about the facility is the friendliness of the staff members here.
pets permitted; astonishing low price for one bedroom; very close to a hospital
Poorly lit, smelled of chemicals, horrible décor coloring, no onsite Activities Director. Studio and one bedroom were nice and had a good floor plan.

Dear sir or madam, Thank you for sharing your concerns with us. At Commonwealth Senior Living, we work hard to improve the lives of seniors and their families. Not only do we have an Activities Director onsite, she trains new Activities Directors from Maryland, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and Virginia on best practices. Our community here in Charlottesville is named the Center of Excellence internally as we have hired the best of the best to train our new associates in the areas of business office management, dining services, and resident programs. I would encourage you to reach out to me directly and give Commonwealth Senior Living a second look. Our residents and families have been very pleased with the lifestyle they enjoy in our community. You can reach by via email at [removed] Kind regards, Dianne Johnson Executive Director
We moved our parents into Commonwealth Senior Living a few months ago and are so pleased with the friendly staff, their dinning choices and the spacious 2 bedroom 2 bathroom independent living apartment. They have activities every day to choose from if they want or they can do things on their own. They have the security of help close by if they need it. This gives us peace of mind to know they are in a safe place and taken care of while we are not there. They love their independence, the wonderfully prepared meals and the new friends they have made. The staff is super friendly and the maintenance staff responds quickly when anything arises. Thanks to A Place For Mom for helping us find this place ??
Great location and floor plan. Nice facility and friendly staff. Good ratio of staff to residents. Clean. Good size rooms. Memory care was quite active.
Compact and comfortable surroundings - appears able to meet a variety of levels of care.
[Name removed] moved in; today! Thank you!!
My relative is always clean and well dressed. Caregivers are caring and good at what they do. The increase in activities more recently has been a nice happy addition to the day. This is one of the finer memory care facilities my relative has been in. Very healthy meals and snacks!
Similar in nature to the facility in which my Mother now lives. I think she would like a kitchenette which are not in great supply. No washer/dryer in room which might annoy her. They do accommodate pets which is a requirement for us. Reasonably priced from what we hear of the local market. We were favorably impressed.
Commonwealth Senior Living at Charlottesville was a very lovely community that we toured. It was a bigger community and the common spaces were very new and contemporary. We chose a smaller community for our loved one and that was closer to our home.
This community was our second choice. The people we met were really nice. We do know people that live here and they have nothing but nice things to say. The community is clean and I hear the care is good. This community did offer the rehabilitation we were looking for.
My mother was a resident in the Independent Living Section. This section includes a daily check by the staff if the resident doesn't check in first. My mother was [Removed] in her bed with a broken collarbone and no one checked on her. I found her four days later and rushed her to the hospital. The staff never noticed she hadn't check in. We trusted Commonwealth Senior Living to check in her every day as promised so she could maintain her independent life. They failed to do what they promised.
Commonwealth Senior Living of Charlottesville is a wonderful facility in whom I trust the care of my elderly parents. The site director, clinical coordinator, head of maintenance and the caregivers are all hands on in the care and welfare of their residents. They know their residents by name, know their family situations and work hard to help residents and their families transition into their new environment. We are pleased with the safe and caring place where both of my parents now live. A Place for Mom is an amazing group and my advisor listened to our needs and found this wonderful facility for my parents. She guided me through this overwhelming process, suggested what to look for in a facility, suggested questions to ask and was an overall strong support for me during this stressful and trying time. I could not have done it without her.
I selected this facility because they offer the care my loved one needs, and it is convenient to family and friends. Their meals are good; they are patient, kind and attentive. However, they are short-staffed on weekends. When I visit on weekends there are no clean linens in the bathroom, the trash has not been removed, carpet still has the same crumbs that were there my previous visit, and the bathroom has not been cleaned. But I feel the environment is safe and beneficial for recovery.
The is a community that was nice and had great staff members. Very clean and well taken care of. I was offered alot of activities to keep active. This community was not a good fit for me, but others might be happy here.
Leaving the country and knowing that my mother was left in good hands gave me a peace of mind. They communicated with me very well there were no bad calls. My mother enjoys the meals that are provided for her. I would definitely recommend this place they have been doing a great job with their services. The activities are above and beyond they are the best!
