Over the years, I had considered moving to Carlyle Place but I always presumed that I couldn’t afford it. But when I sat down with my daughter and we added up what I was spending on lawn service, and housecleaning, utilities, property taxes, and my other expenses, it was actually more when I compared it to the Carlyle Place monthly fee. Seeing that cost comparison made the decision to move to Carlyle Place very easy and clear.
Living here in Macon has been great, and there are many cultural experiences to enjoy. It is convenient to just take the bus into town for a group outing and not have to worry with parking or driving back at night. The best time to move into Carlyle Place is now, while you are still active and vital and can take advantage of all of the events and activities.
We moved to Carlyle Place from North Carolina to be closer to our children. We started as independent living residents and since then I have needed to transition my husband into memory care and eventually into skilled care. I am extremely grateful that I’ve been able to stay on the same campus near my husband throughout this transition. The leadership team has made all of my husband’s moves seamless. I truly feel we’ve given our children a gift in that our care through all of these stages has been established and worry-free.

Check for Accreditation
You’ll find you have many challenging choices to make from countless senior living providers. But all life plan communities are not created equally. It is important to do your homework and make sure that your new home will have the right designations and credentials to ensure quality and reliability. There are three important designations to understand.
No provider can operate without first obtaining a license, which requires passing an inspection by a regulatory agency. Usually the state board or a professional college set rules and requirements for operation.
Certification usually addresses points such as business licenses, staff background checks, accounting procedures, and insurance coverage.
In addition to meeting state and federal licensing and certification requirements, many communities voluntarily go through a rigorous accreditation process. Only after a provider demonstrates certain standards and can prove positive outcomes can accreditation be designated by an outside third party. Trained professionals visit communities to observe and interview residents, family members, staff, and the board. Accredited organizations are required to demonstrate strategic and ethical business practices and positive community engagement and influence.
Accreditation by a reputable independent, nonprofit accreditor such as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF International) assures that public that the community has made a commitment to quality and continuous improvement of services. CARF accreditation means the organization's focus is on the person's served.
We are pleased to say that Carlyle Place, Navicent Health, has been an accredited provider since we opened our doors in 2001.Contact Us
