I explored Sharon Towers and was interested in them, but since they’re building right now, it is about a year to a year and a half before they will have anything ready. The facilities are very, very nice. Everything is good there, but they did not take note of my long-term care policy, which will roughly pay for everything I need if I need long-term care. The atmosphere was very pleasant, though. I did not see any of the rooms because they did not have everything available. I have seen the floor plans, so I have an idea of what they have. The staff and everybody that I met were very professional and very pleasant. It would be a good place to go, but it was a bit more expensive by comparison to other facilities. The facility itself would be a good 4 or 5 stars. They have some older buildings and some newer buildings. I think some of the newer buildings would be much more pleasant. Everything is very easily managed. The hallways were all large, and there were plenty of rooms for several people to move through easily, especially if they have walkers.
I visited Sharon Towers with a friend, whose Grandmother lived in the facility. It is a high rise style facility, located in the SouthPark area of Charlotte,
Immediately I was impressed with the cleanliness and updated decor of the facility. It had a very classy feeling to it, much like a more upscale hotel.
My friend's Grandmother's apartment was really nice. It provided adequate space for her to enjoy as her own home yet was small enough that she was able to manage some of the organizing, housecleaning, etc. herself (which she enjoyed doing). Staff were also very available to assist her with such tasks and her apartment was very neat and clean in appearance.
The common dining hall was really pretty and the woman I was visiting stated that she really enjoyed the meals they served there. It had a nice, open feeling to it and was also extremely neat and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I saw at least two staff members greeting residents by name and smiling as they were completing their work.
There are plenty of activities available in this facility and even shuttle bus service for things like shopping, church, and resident outings planned by the activities staff.
Overall I would say this is a wonderful facility and I would highly recommend it.
