Tucked quietly away in the Carmel Hills, surrounded by stately pines and gardens, you’ll find the care you expect at Carmel Hills Care Center. We are a State of California Licensed and Federally Certified Skilled Nursing Facility. Our programs have been designed not just to meet, but rather, to exceed all laws and regulations that govern facilities like ours. Because we are locally owned and operated, we are completely accountable for the quality of care we provide.
You can take comfort in the fact that we are strategically located next to the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula should there be a need for emergency or specialized care in a hospital. We understand the importance of warm and comfortable surroundings as an aid to recuperation, and make every effort to provide our residents with a positive life experience.
Carmel Hills Care Center hires only caregivers who are experienced and who can demonstrate qualities of compassion, dependability, and understanding of the needs of our residents. We do background and reference checks on all caregivers.

Fresh New Look, Continued Higher Level of Care
If you haven’t visited recently, you’ll notice a significant change to our front courtyard. At Carmel Hills Care Center, we know our service is judged by the level of care we provide. At the same time, we realize it can’t hurt to be surrounded by beautiful gardens. We’ve completely renovated the space and made it more accessible to our resident’s and their families.

Employee of the Month
Laura Fisher, Payroll Supervisor
\Laura has been employed at Carmel Hills since May 11, 2016. She is our Payroll Supervisor in the Business Office, but, as many of us know, she wears many hats. Our managers nominated Laura for her exceptional work and the willingness to help. She greets everyone with a smile and will assist in any way she can. During our Candlelight Dinner in August she noticed that extra help would be appreciated. She stayed and helped, along with her son; just an example of going above and beyond without being asked. Thank you for all that you do!

Special Friends' Day
at the Monterey County Fair
Residents had a wonderful time thanks to the Monterey County Fair committee who sponsored the Special Friend’s Day. We thank you for your generous hospitality and lunch you provided our Residents. Carmel Hills staff worked together to assist our residents during their outing to assure they had a fun day out and about. Thank you to Derrick, Bill and Eric in our maintenance department who transported us all there and back safely. To Donne in Social Services who came out with us and Helame who covered our Activity room while we were out. To my Activity Staff who had the energy to keep up with our Residents allowing me to do the easy part...supervise. Residents really enjoyed their day at the Fair.
