Assisted Living Reviews for Vernon Springs Senior Living, LLC

February 01, 2014

By Ellyn3

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We put my husband in The Carlton a week ago. It's only four blocks from where I'm going to be living. Everyone's very nice, very enthusiastic, and very helpful and doing everything they could to help us. Some of the food has been quite good, but some of it has been so-so. But hors d'oeuvres are good. They have scheduled activities every day that starts after breakfast with exercise. And then they have about five more things through the day. All the rooms are arranged in a circle, so they all have nice big windows to the outside. But then the main areas like the living room which has a fireplace and a big TV, the eating areas and activity areas, those are in the middle so they have skylights, but they don't have any windows.
