Medical Director: While under no obligation from the state licensing agency to have a medical director in an assisted living community, Carlton has chosen to establish that relationship with Dr. Charanjit Sandhu. His advice to the wellness team allows for cohesive oversight of each resident’s well-being. Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Sandhu is a long-time practitioner in the Sacramento region. He prides himself on an approach to medicine that allows him “to meet patients’ varied needs and to care for their mind, whole body, and spirit.” He also embraces the concept of “concierge medicine,” which allows his patients to receive more of his time and attention for an already negotiated fee that frequently lowers their annual spending on doctor’s visits.

Wellness Team: Staff nurses, both RNs and LVNs, are able to coordinate care, monitor residents’ health status, and follow physicians’ orders for injections and medication management. They also train personal caregiving staff and, at Carlton Crown Plaza, are available onsite 24 hours each day. This allows the Plazas to accept and retain residents with greater health-related needs as well as comprehensively manage their care. It also assures that a skilled professional is quickly available should emergencies arise.
Both communities also manage residents’ medication using specially trained Medication Technicians and cutting-edge electronic medication administration records (eMARS) technology. This helps minimize medication errors, increase staff efficiency, provide comprehensive documentation, and improve quality of care.
Carlton Senior Living’s LiFE – Letting Individuality Freely Exist – is a person-centered approach to memory care for those challenged by Alzheimer’s and dementia. Carlton Senior Living team members have concentrated, specialized training that enable them to join residents on their journeys; honoring the spirit of the residents whose lives have been changed by dementia, while celebrating the person who still is.
The LiFE caregiving philosophy values all people as unique, recognizes individual viewpoints, and honors the connection among us. It acknowledges that human life is grounded in relationships. This memory and Alzheimer’s care program provides Sacramento County residents challenged by Alzheimer’s disease and dementia a rewarding and meaningful social environment which compensates for their impairment and promotes retention of daily living skills. The goal at Carlton Senior Living Sacramento is to respond with appropriate care in a gentle, family-like environment.
The LiFE program utilizes best practices in dementia care with innovative programs such as Coro Health music therapy and Dakim BrainFitness training. The Carlton Senior Living team understands the unique behaviors that frequently accompany memory loss. They use gentle redirection as well as touch and reassuring smiles to build trusting relationships.
A comprehensive activities program enhances the memory care resident’s success moment-to-moment. Health-related care needs are closely monitored so medication and assistance with activities of daily living can be managed comfortably.
State-of-the-art technology monitors the memory care area with a delayed entrance/egress system at doorways. A full schedule of special events allows family members to celebrate life with their loved ones.
