Warm, Caring Assisted Living
in Pacific Grove, CA

When you love your independence but need a helping hand now and again, you’ll find just what you need at Forest Hill, the community for premier assisted living in Pacific Grove, CA. Our specially-trained, licensed professionals will help with all the basic activities of daily living—whatever you need, it’s always your choice—including bathing, dressing and grooming, and medication management. And unlike other assisted living options on the Monterey Peninsula, it’s all included in the monthly fee.


Residents in our Continuing Care program have priority access and can seamlessly transition from independent living to assisted living, quickly and simply, if and when health needs change. We also accept entry into assisted living from the Monterey community at large.
