    I think the Carlyle is a great place. I'm moving there when I get old. The room is very neat, clean, and set up well. My mom needs a little walking space. The food is excellent, and the staff is wonderful. They have card games, bingo, and people come in and sing. They take them to Walmart on Monday and watch games together.

    We took a tour of The Carlyle. The director was excellent and showed us everything that was available, took us around, showed us the dining facilities, recreation area, and the cottages. It was excellent service. He was very cooperative and very forthright with every question we had for him. We got to meet the servers and the residents who volunteered to show other people around, and they're very knowledgeable. We talked to a couple of guys who were playing pool in the game room. The dining facilities were excellent. They had individual tables and a nice long table for groups of people, so they could share a meal together. It was a very comfortable setting, very well lit, a lot of windows and natural light, and it was very well kept. The furniture was great. The 2-bedroom cottage with attached garage was beautiful. The floor plans were wide, open, easily accessible if you were in a wheelchair or a walker, the area was very large, and the bedrooms, doorways, and the bathroom facilities were wide enough.

    The Carlyle really had good offers as far as getting my mom in. It has good independent living, but has options for three meals a day and very nice activities like Bingo, card games, puzzles, exercise every day, Bible studies, and Church organizations that come to them. Mom has a very nice balcony, and everyone has been really good to her.

    We visited The Carlyle. They had a really nice library with a really good supply of different types of books that interest different people. We also saw the dining room, the activities room, and the rooms themselves, which was all very nice. The staff was very kind and very helpful. They told us to come back and try the food, but my mom was not really interested. Everybody was super nice, informative, and helpful. They were very nice to my mom and introduced her to other residents.

    I liked the Carlyle. We went to see several rooms, and the manager said that they wanted us to partake in a whole day’s activity, including the food. The building seemed to be warmer than the first place I went to. It’s a nice and new, three-story building and has elevators. The building was warm, and you have a good feeling about it. They had a café that was open all the time and a main dining room as well. They mainly are for independent living, and if you want assisted living, then you have to contract that outside of the area to come in and take care of you in the room. The rooms were fully carpeted and all had a balcony off of the bedroom or off the back of the main room. The best thing was the interior painting and decorations.
