The Gardens is truly a “home away from home” for seniors who require sheltered care. The loving atmosphere embraces each individual because the staff treats residents like family members, tenderly seeing to their needs and comfort. The Gardens is also a safe environment for walking, sitting in the sun or having a meal outside since it is completely enclosed and the gates are secured. There are nine spacious bedrooms in this large home, which sits on an acre and a half of land that was formerly an avocado grove.​

Our exceptional staff takes a personal interest in every resident. Their caring attention and professionalism make each resident feel cared for, respected, and secure. We provide attentive care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a warm family environment. During the spring and summer, residents enjoy going out to lunch, trips to the beach, Oceanside Harbor, and Carlsbad Flower Fields. During the winter and fall, residents enjoy Fireside Chats and Movie Nights.​

Contact us to set up a tour and meet our exceptional staff and learn how we help our residents experience retirement at its best. Stroll our grounds and experience the resort-like setting for yourself.
