Brookdale Charlotte East

Review by Local Professional | Expert

Wilora Lake Lodge is filled with happy residents who are greeted by name from each staff member. The apartments are being remodeled, and the results are wonderful. I ranked the food as a three because I have never eaten there. I have a strong desire for dementia education.

Review by Beth | Consumer

Brookdale Charlotte East was a nice facility and it had a lot to offer. The room size was way too small for what my mother-in-law was looking for, and it was too expensive. The staff during the tour did a good job and she was nice. I would recommend them. She was just looking for something more spacious.

Review by Richard | Consumer

Brookdale Charlotte East was affordable. We toured it and they had entertainment going on at the time. They had transportation to doctors, shopping, and local events. It was an older facility and they had older apartments, but they were clean, well-kept and in good condition. The lady who gave us the tour was helpful.

Brookdale Carriage Club Providence

Review by Local Professional | Expert

Yes, I gave all five star ratings. Carriage Club is an amazing facility. To get the type of services they offer, one would expect it to be a "buy in" type situation. It is not. The housing options are numerous, and the activities are not to be matched. I had the pleasure of a complimentary lunch, and it was fantas...

Information About Independent Living Communities in Charlotte

Charlotte Independent LivingBeing the largest city of North Carolina, Charlotte is a major financial hub, second only to New York City in terms of assets. This metropolis is nicknamed as the Queen City since Charlotte was named after Queen Charlotte of Great Britain. Additionally, the city has a very colorful history; in fact, during the American Revolutionary War, Charlotte gained for itself another moniker — The Hornet’s Nest, since British soldiers who tried to occupy the area were driven out by hostile locals. Aside from its urban comforts, seniors generally choose Charlotte independent living communities because of the city’s humid subtropical weather.

Attractions

Charlotte is where much of the racing action is; in fact, the city holds numerous racing events every year on its speedways and for racing fans, the NASCAR Hall of Fame is a must-visit attraction.
