I visited this facility

I really liked the community and loved the activities, but Carlton Plaza doesn’t have balconies. They did have a lot of walking areas, however. I just got a really good feel from that place. Out of the two I have seen so far, I liked this one the best. It’s more amenable to my mother having a dog. My mom needs more care, and they also have a memory care unit, which I really like. The staff was helpful. The director was wonderful. I asked her a lot of tough questions, like, "How do you train your people?" She also told me they’re family-owned.

We did visit Carlton Plaza of San Jose, and it's a beautiful facility. We met one staff there, and she was really great, very friendly, and helpful. The facility was beautiful, gorgeous property. I got to see inside an actual room which I appreciated, and that was good. Our experience is very good.

Carlton Plaza is also fairly new, clean and friendly. They had activities like a piano recital going on. The dining area looks really nice, with high ceiling and a buffet meal. The staff was very friendly.

Carlton Plaza is like a resort. I saw their one bedroom and it’s beautiful. The dining room was like a fine restaurant. They do have a memory care section. I had no issue with them as far as cleanliness. The staff was great; they have really nice people that showed me around and gave me information. They were very responsive, but the price was outrageous. It was closer to me though.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I am contented here in Carlton Plaza. I like the kindliness of the staff and the way they work so efficiently. I like the food very much and for the most part, they offer you an alternative. We have activities like outings and regular trips to San Francisco, Monterey and all over. We have parties and movies regularly. They keep everybody busy. They are very good and I would recommend them to others.

I moved in to Carlton about eight or nine weeks ago. The place is very clean and very pleasant. It was not expensive. It's the nicest place that I looked at. I like their terms and I just don't think I could do any better but to be here. They provide all the food and it's good. They show movies. They have yoga lessons and have church mass.

I visited Carlton Plaza of San Jose. We just met with the director and she was one of the most amazing human beings I ever met. In terms of the way they treat their people, because we saw a lot of interaction, they get the star. It is definitely up there. The apartment that I saw was clean but it was not a right fit for my mom.
