About Us

56 Years of Introducing Individuals to the Good Life

For over half a century, we’ve been providing seniors with the opportunity to relax and enjoy every day. But how did we come to provide this exceptional lifestyle? Carmel Valley Manor was established in 1963 by Northern California Congregational Retirement Homes, Inc., a California not-for-profit organization. We are governed by a voluntary local Board of Trustees, with residents represented through the Residents Council. The Manor operates as a Life Care Retirement Community with the oversight of the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing Division. Hillcrest, our assisted living center, is licensed as a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly by the California Department of Social Services. Our Health Center is licensed as a skilled nursing facility by the California Department of Public Health.
