Nestled in a forested hillside above old town Monterey, for over 20 years Carmelo Park has provided tender care in a beautiful, serene setting.


Carmelo is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with caregivers who do their work out of a place of compassion and respect for our residents. Our staff is highly trained, initially and ongoing. Our night staff conduct hourly checks on our residents and assist with any restroom and medication needs at night. At Carmelo Park, our caregivers make all the difference for our residents!

When you and your loved ones are first greeted at Carmelo Park, you are being welcomed in by the Owners of our community. When your loved ones are residing with us, they are being cared for by excellent staff with decades of elder care experience. When you move into Carmelo Park, you become part of our family, not a part of a large company. It's been that way since 1994, when our community was first built, and that family atmosphere and attention to care has continued to this day.

At Carmelo Park, we also understand the importance of individuality. Our resident’s routines are designed to sustain a sense of well-being and personal independence. Activities are professionally planned and implemented by our Activities Director.

Whether in recreation, socialization, physical/mental stimulation or spiritual development, our purpose is to provide activities that are meaningful and fulfilling to your loved one. We respect the choices each resident makes in spending their personal time and strive to provide a comfortable and appropriate atmosphere to do so.

We, at Carmelo Park, believe in the purpose and value of each and every day. Our goal is simple. At the close of the day, our residents and staff should share in this common thought, “THAT was a good day!”

Having your loved in a memory care home is such a hard decision. Knowing that they are loved and cared for the way Carmelo Park does takes such a burden off the heart and soul. I cannot recommend the staff and facility more. They are simply the best.

Carmelo Park is great. My patients always get the best care. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive to my patients' needs. My patients tell me they feel like they are in their own home. I have no hesitation recommending Carmelo Park for my patients.


Dr. John Donaldson

The staff at Carmelo Park are incredible human beings! The residents are well taken care of and (equally important) happy. From a medical point of view, the staff are 'exceptional' at caring for my patients, and they see to it that things are salubrious.

Carmelo Park is truly "home" for our Moms! One Mom has been treated like a princess for 6 years, encouraging us to move the other Mom there. The past two years with both of them there have been so wonderful for our family - Carmelo provides a stable, loving home with the most committed and competent caregivers. As an RN myself, I feel very confident with their entire staff and the level of care provided. We are very fortunate and grateful that there is a caring place like Carmelo Park for our parent.
