Assisted Living Reviews for Charter Senior Living of Towson

November 17, 2014

I visited this facility

We like this facility. We like the size of the rooms. They have a living room and a bedroom. We like the ambiance of the place. When we walked in, everybody was friendly. My dad is a veteran and they have a wall with all the veterans in the facility, and that was pretty cool too. Definitely this facility would be our first choice for my dad. I know they have different kinds of exercises that my dad would like. I like also that they have a community area where people can come down. Every day they make sure that they have something the residents can attend.

I really liked it. The rooms were nice. I just wasn't sure that was the best placement for my mother. They were right next to a Catholic church. My mother was Catholic, and I really like that. The staff was very nice.

It was fantastic, but it was too expensive for us. It was great. I just think that it was so nice; I wouldn't mind it for myself. It was probably for people who have high incomes. The dining area was great. The staff was excellent. They followed up on us. They were very professional, too. The facility was excellent. It was also very clean. You would think you were in a hotel or a spa. It was very nice.

It was farther from my home but it was absolutely wonderfully. It was on the same level as it's counterpart in Pikesville. The staff was great and their director was fabulous. It seemed like everyone had gone to How-To-Be-Nice-To-People 101.
