For Your Peace of Mind

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

Helame Mahe
Social Service Director Assistant

Helame Mahe has been employed by Carmel Hills Care Center since May 11, 2009 and is the essence of what we all wish we could be. He is a kind, loving, caring, compassionate and sensitive man who is loved by our Residents and staff at Carmel Hills. Quick to lend a hand, he offers his time and assistance when asked or if he sees the need. When he worked in Activities, he was the spirit that brought happiness to our Resident’s. Lamé(as he is known to us) has a way of reaching a resident who is withdrawn, unwilling to interact with others or adjust to our facility while recuperating. He developed new activities to keep Residents involved, learned to drive the transportation van to assist in outings, went through Pet Therapy Certification to introduce Pet Therapy to our facility and played his Ukulele for Residents. Lamé does not do his job or go above and beyond for points, it truly comes from the heart. He has always stated that he does not need pats on the back or to be recognized through Employee of the Month Awards, he does it because he loves his job. Mo-halo Lame` and know you are “Carmel Hills Care Center”, the perfect example of our Core Values.

Congratulations on being the September Employee of the Month!

August Fun!

Carnival Activities in Courtyard

Monterey Moose Lodge hosted a Carnival Day for our residents by setting up games that all residents who attended could participate in. Residents with different levels of physical abilities attended and had a great time. Win or lose, Residents won bingo $$$$ which were redeemable in the Activity Department gift store. Scented lotions, body washes and other toiletries were supplied by the Moose Lodge. Our facility supplied popcorn, cracker jacks and shaved ice snow cones which helped finish off the Carnival theme. No Resident was left out. Teddy with Heart (cuddly teddy bears) were given to residents who were bed bound and could not attend due to they’re physical condition. We thank Mark S. Arellano, Administrator of the Monterey Moose Lodge and the Moose Lodge staff who came to help provide an afternoon of fun. The Residents and staff had a wonderful time.
