The Gardens By the Sea

A Residential Care Facility for the Elderly

Welcome Home to The Gardens

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.


Our rate is more affordable than nursing care homes, private caregivers and large assisted living facilities. Furthermore, we are a secured facility that specializes in memory care with a staff that is active and available 24 hours a day. We are located close to the beach, freeways, hospitals, doctor offices and shopping centers.


We make sure our residents receive the best quality care and feel like they are living at their own home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Unsurpassed Caring Staff

Our exceptional staff take personal interest in every resident. Their caring attention and professionalism make each resident feel cared for, respected and secure.

"When it became evident that my dad would need assistance and supervision, I started researching board and care homes.  I visited 6 facilities and found The Gardens to be just what I was looking for.  It is small enough to give a homey feeling, but large enough to provide the residents activities and socialization.  My dad has been there 3 months and we couldn't be more pleased.  The staff is loving and competent, my dad is treated with caring and respect.  He is happy there, and loves his caretakers.  Highly recommended!"

"My grandmother lived at The Gardens prior to her recently passing and I have nothing but great things to say about this care facility. Elsa (head caregiver) and her staff truly make this place feel like home for both residents and their families. We had a horrific experience at Merrill Gardens in Oceanside and after much research and several recommendations, we decided on The Gardens. It did not disappoint!  David, the owner, is pleasant, easy to work with, and always communicated well. Elsa and her staff prepare wonderful meals, keep the place very clean, and residents are always attended to and well groomed. We couldn't have asked for a better environment for my grandmother in her final years. Thank you to everyone at The Gardens for their exceptional level of care! I highly recommend this place for loved ones in need of care."
