About The Gardens at San Carlos
With two beautiful Care Homes to choose from right in Tucson, we believe every person who needs 24/7 help deserves top care and we strive to be the best. At the Gardens, we have one staff member for every five residents during the day to provide an engaging and stimulating environment. At night, our residents enjoy a peaceful rest while a highly trained staff member works to maintain a quality home. We want our residents to flourish and we strive to fill the days of our residents with purpose, passion, and events.
The Gardens is a newly renovated, sun-filled home in central Tucson. Our core values support Compassionate, Active, Responsive, and Excellent care and the living space is responsive to those values. Inside the home, we have soaring ceilings, a high-end kitchen, and stunning open spaces for socializing. Our rooms are large and have a range of bathroom options including 1/2 or 3/4 bath. The exterior of the yard has been tailored to serve our residents as well and includes ‘no bending’ raised garden beds, fruit trees, a waterfall, a pool, and a hot tub. This is truly a wonderful home to live in.
Dale, the owner, became interested in senior care after supporting his grandparents through their transition to care facilities and realizing there was a deep need for high-quality assisted living homes. He has spent his teens and 20s in caring fields including K-12 teaching and vulnerable adult care. After completing his MBA, worked for Texas Instruments and Walbro in sales and operations with a focus on process improvement. Dale is a certified caregiver and is a hands-on business owner who opened the Gardens in 2019 after four years of planning and a lifetime of preparation.
