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.

October is Physical Therapy Month
Left to Right: Rachelle Onishi, PTA; David Tefelski, PTA; and Anne Savoie, RPT.
We celebrate Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants this month! Their skills help transform our society by restoring and improving physical motion in people's lives. Physical therapy plays a vital role in today's health care system and it is essential in obtaining resident's goals for a safe discharge once they reach their full rehab potential. Physical Therapists also develop fall prevention programs to reduce safety risks at home as well as home safety evaluations (prior to discharge) to aid in a safe transition. Physical therapy is provided to all ages, those who have or may develop activity and/or physical limitations. A resident may have limited mobility related to conditions of their musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular and/or pulmonary systems. Our rehab team provides positive feedback and encouragement with each effort by a resident. They work at rebuilding residents' level of physical strength, self-esteem, and self reliance to return them to their prior level of independence. Great job, PT, OT, and SLP!
