Reviews of The Carlisle Sunrise Senior Living
Average Rating: based on 2 Reviews
The Carlisle is an extremely upscale condominium for seniors and is great for elders who still want all the fabulous amenities. It is located in Lower Pac Heights in a quiet, but convenient location. At Post and Gough, it is just a few blocks away from Japantown, Fillmore St, Polk St, Whole Foods, and Safeway.
I visited this facility
The Carlisle is a continuing care retirement community -- actually a condominium tower -- centrally located on Post Street, on Cathedral Hill. I've had clients there over the years, though none at the moment.
It's one of the newer CCRCs: very beautiful, with apartments ranging from large studios to large suites--all very nicely laid out and appointed.
The staff, from what I've both seen and heard, is very good and attentive. But there has been a lot of turnover with both the direct care staff and the nursing staff, so that's a bit of a red flag.
The Carlisle also has a 5-star chef, and the food is excellent. There's lots of variety, and the food is nutritious.
There's also a full complement of activities. They're nice and varied, and there's very good participation on the part of the residents.
One other caution: When it fist opened in the 90s, The Carlisle had a contract with St. Mary's to handle skilled nursing. Now skilled nursing is more nebulous; it's not clear how they're caring for someone who's more medically frail. If I were considering it now, I'd check out the transition to skilled nursing very carefully.
