Oakmont of Montecito in Concord, CA
4.2

I think we were at an advantage because our dad had seen Oakmont before when looing for a place for a different relative, and he remembered it and was open to it. Overall we thought it would be a good fit for both our parents, with one in need of assisted living and the other in need of memory care. We felt like it would be a good place for both of them. There's a dog in the memory care unit and some birds, which is great for mom. They even brought in some ponies, and my mom was very happy to see those. I like that I can talk to both of my parents whenever I want. I like the interaction with the staff. I feel like they know me, even though I live in another state. They seem equally engaging and friendly as when we were first came through to tour. The other residents in the community seem pretty happy as well, and that makes me feel confident. It's clean, and the food looks appetizing. They're also really strong in activities, especially considering the Covid situation. They're doing the best they can. I would like to see field trips and other opportunities for them to get out, but I think they're doing a great job. It's everything that I need and want for my parents. They're very accommodating. They bring in a dental hygienist, a podiatrist, and hair stylist. There's a pool, a movie theater, a ballroom, three baby grand pianos and an upright in memory care. They have all of the amenities I would want them to have. All in all it's been a good fit for my parents.

I think they do a fantastic job at Carlton Senior Living! I helped find this place for a friend, and our experience has been a very good one. It's a beautiful facility, and the staff are all very kind, caring, and professional. They've got all sorts of activities, good food, and a great social atmosphere. The other residents all seem very active and friendly! I'd highly recommend it, if you're looking for senior care in the area!
