Assisted Living Reviews for Carmel Village Retirement Community

Carmel Village was beautiful. I’m sure it was the most expensive one, but it was so nicely appointed. The dining room and furniture looked really nice, and it was definitely updated it very recently. The staff was very nice and helpful, and you could tell that they took pride in the place. They had a library, a computer area, and a little gym. It was definitely the nicest one I've seen. It looked like they paid a lot of attention to detail in making it seem homey in an elegant way.

Carmel Village is only three minutes away, but they really couldn’t take care of my father-in-law's needs, so that kind of axed it out of the running right there. I would have him there because it’s three minutes away, so I can literally walk over and get him. And I loved Mary Rose; she was fabulous. She knew what she was doing, was very kind, gave us a lot of good advice, and helped us with what to look for; she was great. They have this great first floor patio that I absolutely adored, and it would have been perfect. The rooms and apartments were fabulous. If the person wasn’t as mobile, they could better help out. But it had a great feel to it. It was a very safe and kind environment. If they were going to do anything, they could just freshen up their common areas.

Carmel Village was a very beautiful, little center. The lady who helped me was wonderful. She answered all of my questions, happily provided any information that I wanted, and took me on a tour that included seeing the different floor plans. The community was very nice and had lots of amenities and activities. It was something I would really consider for my parents. They ran errands for the residents on different days, had outings, and went to movies. The menu was pretty expensive, but they offered very nice entrées every evening and had lots of options, which I thought was really good. I would recommend them. It was a really nice community and the people that I talked with were very nice. Everything that they offered was nice. However, the rooms were small.

Carmel Village Retirement Community was a smaller facility. The amenities were nice, and had a homey feel. The grounds were well-kept, and moderate in size. The rooms were a little bit smaller. It's a newer facility, and the property that they had it built on was less. The dining room was set up nicely, but their hours were more restrictive in regards to eating. They had specific menus and times for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The social recreations were adequate. They appeared to have experienced staff that were social with the occupants. They're very unique in their own way even though it's smaller.

Carmel Village is a combination assisted-living and there’s a part that’s called managed care in it for Alzheimer's. My friend didn’t care for the managed care side of the facility; she thought that it was very confining. The place was OK. They invited us to have lunch there. The dining room was very nice and the food was very good. The staff was very accommodating. I was watching some of the residents there. They were doing some kind of activity. They were all lined up along the sidewalk and looking at the wall. I think they had different things like bingo.

Carmel Village was the facility I liked the best. It was very well maintained. The staff was very nice. The food was excellent. It had a good location. The grounds were very nice and very well maintained with flowers and walking paths. The units were pretty small, which was a little bit of a drawback.

They have five different floorplans available. My friend picked the plan that has one bedroom and one living room and has a total of 550 square feet. This is enough space for him to feel comfortable, as he has the privacy of his own room. It also allows him to entertain guests such as myself in the living room. The place is fully furnished. There's a lot to do around the community. There's a library, so it's good to read or play board games at one of the tables. There's a courtyard space with lots of lush vegetation, so it's comfortable to take a walk and enjoy an evening stroll with pleasant conversation. There's an arts and crafts room if he feels creative and wants to make something with other people. There is also transportation to take residents to local areas such as the mile square park or the beach. There is never a lack of things to do here. The care here is great. They have a 24-hour staff that is attentive to details. Packages include grooming, medication regulation, personal laundry, grooming, and others. There's a spectrum of how invasive you want the staff to be, and they're happy to accommodate. Overall, it seems like my friend is happy.

Carmel Village is the best place! My Mother has lived here for more than eight years and she is very happy. The staff members are just great, and my whole family enjoys our visits to Carmel Village. We looked at alot of places before we made this choice, and we are so pleased that we choose Carmel.
