General Information

The Carlisle is a great community for those that have the means to pay for it. The sticker tag might surprise some prospects but visiting the community and seeing what it offers will better help prospects understand why. As a CCRC, residents have the freedom to live an independent life while having the peace of mind that as their health changes, the Carlisle will be there to provide care and assistance as needed. Also, upon completion of a financial contract, prospects go through a care assessment. The care assessment determines a prospect’s ability to live independently from the onset of moving in. Once moved in a dedicated care team provides regular care assessments to determine whether care will be required in the future. The Carlisle offers assisted living care but does not handle memory care or skilled nursing.
