Assisted Living Reviews for Carlton Senior Living San Leandro

I'm going to put my mom into Carlton Senior Living San Leandro next month. The rooms were nice. They showed me a small studio and a large studio. They're far bigger than the other places I visited, especially for the price. Everything was nice. They have a whole program that is just right for my mother compared to other places. They have games, Bingo, concerts, and programs. They serve three meals a day. They have an area where the residents can come and have snacks. They will transport my mom to her appointments. They also have a beauty salon. It was very nice. They have a lot of good things right there. The staff was very informative, very professional, and very consistent. I loved how they treated me versus everywhere else.

When you first walked in to Carlton Senior Living San Leandro, it had a resort-y feel to it. This place was much larger and busier. They have lots of activities going on and lots of people moving around. The rooms were reasonable, but to me, it felt like a hotel room. The dining area looked interesting. They have a little area on the side where you can get coffee and ice cream. It was set up like a coffee bar and very nice. They have a nice sitting area in the front.

Carlton Senior Living San Leandro has excellent variety and very well prepared good food. There is a very good cook in that place. I think the expense is well worth it because of the service, the food, and the care. Mom is in a shared room in the memory care, but it's OK. It was a bit small, but it has large windows and lots of space to put things up to make it feel like home. The place has beautiful furniture and a good layout. It is open enough for them to feel that they're not trapped. It has all kinds of different spaces for different things. It is very nice, and I like it. There's no problem that they don't talk over with me. They're very hands-on, and the staff is very loving.

My mom has been at Carlton Senior Living San Leandro for two months. During my brief time with them, they were very attentive to my mother. They always call me if they have a question and let me know when she needs personal things that I usually bring there. They are only five minutes away from my house. She doesn’t swallow as well with the medicine, so they asked me first, then called the doctor and got an order from him to smash up the medicine. They are doing what they’re supposed to do very well and she likes it there. She has a roommate in the memory care section, so they’re always with her. The food is delicious. They have their own patio on their side. They bring them over daily to the assisted living side when they have activities there, like music or someone coming in to play the piano or entertainment. Every Wednesday, the memory care section goes out in a van for a scenic tour. They keep them busy with arts and crafts and different things. I’m going to my first event there called the Candlelight Black and White Dinner that they do that in the memory section every three months.

Carlton Senior Living San Leandro is a nice place, centrally located, and seems like a good fit. We've seen some of the studio rooms and some of them were kind of small. They have one-bedrooms also, but I don't think there were many of them. They were accommodating and provide three meals a day. You could go down any time to get something to eat if you want to. They have activities, movies, and things like that. It is a pretty nice environment.

Carlton Plaza of San Leandro is like a hotel. It did not attract me. It seemed more closed-in.

I did a tour Carlton Plaza of San Leandro, and it was beautiful. The place is very clean and well kept. The people who are staying there were very clean and they looked like they are having a really nice time. The staff knew everybody's name and everybody looked extremely comfortable. There were a lot of amenities for the residents. There is a little café for them that they can get snack at any time. They also have a beautiful central room where they could all watch TV or talk or read books. I was also thinking I would love to live there myself. I looked at 2-bedroom space that was empty at the time. It has air conditioning and it was very light and airy. It has windows that you could open. Their halls were extremely wide so that people can get by with their walkers or wheelchairs if they need to. I saw the dining room and it looked like a restaurant. It's really clean with beautiful tables and chairs.

This assisted living facility is in a large and quite fancy building, near the downtown area"”and easy for visitors to get to, although not a super beautiful location. The food is good, but unremarkable. Nice atmosphere that feels welcoming because of the friendliness of the staff and attention given to the decor. The staff is well trained and friendly, and all of them seem to provide good care that is in tune with the residents' needs. They seem to be on top of things"”to know what to look for and how to interact with residents and assess their needs. There is also a social services staffer on hand for those who need that kind of care and attention. I would recommend it to those looking in that area because the residents are treated with dignity and seem to be genuinely cared about.

Carlton Plaza is very nice. It has two different areas for people who need 24 hour care and some people who can take care of themselves but live there. The staff was nice there, and the dining room area was very nice. I very impressed with it; it looked like a restaurant. They have a great menu, and you can even have dinner with your loved ones. They show movies, they have their own popcorn machine and singing, and there’s just so many things you can do there. Security is great. The rooms were adequate, and they had different size rooms for two people or smaller rooms for single persons. My friend there stayed for a month.

Carlton Plaza of San Leandro is very close to my job. I didn't taste the food, but I did get a tour. Their rooms are awesome. It is bigger, nice, and clean. The facility is great, but they didn't have Spanish speaking staff. They were friendly and very accommodating. They got back to me right away. They were awesome. They did have a lot of activities as well. The dining room is very nice and clean. The facility is very spacious, and it is very big.
