Local Family Owned and Operated – The Clarks and The Prewetts
Carlton House is a legacy asset of two local Victoria families; the Clarks, who are Oak Bay locals, and the Prewetts, who live on the Saanich Peninsula. Multigenerational family members assist in the decision making for Carlton House by sitting on the board, as well as actively working in-house. Each having their own family member live at Carlton House at one point in time, the owners truly strive to make Carlton House the best independent senior living establishment in Victoria.
