Everyone was very nice. The main caregiver was good and I liked her. The community was comparable in some aspects to Sunrise. Our experience was during the pandemic and short time period.

The Pines on Carmel Senior Living in Charlotte, NC
5.0

The "Search" for an assisted "Living Facilty", for our 89yr old mom, from a different state, was a "Daunting" task...However, upon reaching out to "23 facilities" in the Mecklenburg County, Charlotte, NC...Isolating only those accepting of "Medicaid".... "The Pines on Carmel", through the "Community Resource Director", proved the most promising. She was always, professional, informative(through e-mails and phone calls)...compassionate, supportive, understanding, patient and always kind....She directed, supplied and explained each "required" documents to be provided to the management and informed us on the requirements for Medicaid assistance.....Our religious family, felt she was a "God" sent...Her "Sweet, Pleasant" disposition, and assurance, helped eased: The "Highly Emotional" decision, to place one's (aged mother w/ deteriating medical conditions) in the care of their staff, allot more bearable....We are happy we chose this facility, our mom's needs are well cared for.

Sunrise of Providence in Charlotte, NC
4.0

Sunrise is a very good facility, it has such a cheerful environment to it. It is beautifully decorated, they have nice terraces and a beautiful garden. The rooms the residents have are very spacious, well appointment and comfortable. The upstairs was a wonderful area and such a great experience, but the facilitator downstairs and with the memory care unit was lack some serious communication. That was not a good experience. Other than that we would highly recommend this place.

Senior activities

Charlotte is a charming mid-sized city filled with tons of great museums and restaurants, and is practically bursting at the seams with culture. The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta, houses works in all mediums by some of the modern masters. The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture is a cultural center that focuses on all types of artistic expression celebrating African-American voices. If you would like to take full advantage of the mild weather of the Southeast, there are a great number of outdoor attractions in the region to put on your list. Freedom Park, a 98-acre city park, is a Charlotte favorite. In the summer, the park hosts free films and music performances, and every September organizes the 5-day Festival in the Park, attracting over 100,000 visitors.
