Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood on the west side of Evansville, Solarbron offers a variety of attractive and affordable senior living options. Our 64-acre campus invites residents and guests to stroll the grounds and enjoy rolling hills, natural woodlands, stocked fishing lakes and wildlife.

For nearly 30 years, Solarbron has been the community of choice in the Evansville area, known for our comprehensive continuum of care and specialized rehabilitation services, as well as our tradition of gracious living. For maintenance-free independent living, with access to on-site health services if ever needed, residents can select from a variety of apartments or even a private villa. Solarbron’s health care services include short-term rehabilitation, assisted living, long term skilled nursing care and memory support.

Solarbron first opened its doors in 1985, realizing the vision of local residents Sol and Arlene Bronstein, and has grown over the years into a full-service campus. Solarbron is now part of the CarDon family of senior living communities, which extends throughout south-central Indiana. CarDon’s 40-plus years of management expertise form the back-drop for the family-first philosophy still found at Solarbron today.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom


Severely understaffed. My mother got sepsis in their care from a wound that was not cared for properly. The staff kept lying to us and saying that she was in good health and progressing in rehab. We finally got the truth when it was all too late and my mother was rushed to the hospital on our demand. If you want somewhere that has the time and ability to care for your loved one, Solarbron is not the place. I hope to make this so that no one else has to go through what we have. The pain of losing a mother is the worst feeling in this entire world. Especially when she still had life to live. There is no replacement. I would say that if someone needs long term care or long term rehab, this is not the place!

Disregard ALL older reviews.

Do not place your loved one here. The old reviews for this facility are very misleading. The property has been purchased by a new management company and is not the same. The level of care for a patient that has any kind of extra care is extremely lacking. You, or someone else will need to "babysit" the staff to ensure medications are given in a timely manner and basic needs (such as changing clothes and bathing) are met. From what I have been told, this was once a 5-star facility, however it is no longer close. If you have a loved one that needs minimal supervision, maybe this would be an ideal option, however we have not been impressed and will find another facility for our mom as soon as possible.
