Independent Living Reviews for CaraVita Village

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mom has been staying at CaraVita Village in Alabama for three years now. She really enjoys living there, and she's made a lot of good friends. She wishes they have more fresh vegetables though. She has a nice sized room that is bigger than a typical bedroom, and she has a private bathroom. The staff is lovely, very helpful and very nice. It's a very old building and it could use a little maintenance, but they have people that are working on the building all the time. They're doing the best they can with what they've got. For activities, they haven't been doing a lot this year.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we at CaraVita Village are doing. The staff works hard every day to make sure our residents are taken care of and that they feel right at home. CaraVita has been moving through a remodel for close to 2 years. The Covid virus has slowed that progress down a bit but now it is all hands on deck as our contractors are hard at work making sure all of the updating will be completed as soon as possible. Chef Jose is looking forward to again offering his assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables in our 24-hour pantry once Covid diminishes and it is safe to do so. We look forward to serving your mom for many years to come.

My friend is staying in CaraVita Village. It is fine. It looks like they have done a lot of upgrades, so it is in a very good shape. It is also very clean. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I was there for a meal, and the meal was good. The dining area is very nice and clean. It has a lot of natural light, and it looks out over the pool area. It is a very good setting for the meals.

I was very familiar with CaraVita Village because I was with a group from my church that does concerts there. I also have a good friend that lives there and their prices are quite good. They have just about everything. They have groups that come in, games that you can do, transportation when you need it, wonderful meals, a beauty shop, and trips to the casinos. They serve three meals a day. I was very impressed with the staff, the manager, and the other residents. They were all very positive. They wanted to be sure everybody had what they wanted, and they were very helpful, and very accommodating.

Everybody in CaraVita Village were very friendly and helpful, from the lady that showed us the different facilities that they have available, to the cooking and cleaning staff. We chose this community because of the size of the rooms, the fact that there's somebody on the premises 24 hours a day, and the cost. My father-in-law's apartment is a 2-bedroom, 2 bath, with a mini-kitchen and sitting area. They furnish three meals a day, and they have a bus that takes the residents to their doctor, or to Walmart or the bank once a week. They have several different activities like church, choir, Bingo, art, or water aerobics.

We visited Cara Vita, and we liked it very well. It was real close to assisted-living, but we lived over an hour away from there. The person who assisted us was really good, the dining room was really good, and it was a big place.

CaraVita’s apartments were not nicer, but they did have a full kitchen. What I didn’t like about it was that the residents were living in separate buildings from the main building. If it were dark at night, you will be walking from one building to another in the dark, and it’s not in the best area. They don’t have security guards there all the time. It’s quite large. The tour was not as nice, and the staff didn’t explain things to me because a couple of days later, she called me back, and I didn’t like the location.

This is an excellent home for independent living. It is a large facility, and includes a swimming pool. The staff is very courteous and helpful. When I am ready to make a change this is one of my first considerations.
