Who We Are
Our services can help you in many ways.
At Gary and Mary West PACE you can:
- See a physician when necessary
- Make new friends
- Receive nutritional counseling and healthy meals
- Get your prescriptions delivered directly to you

We are located in a beautiful adult day health center at 1706 Descanso Avenue in San Marcos, where we also have a full-service clinic designed just for seniors. You will receive excellent healthcare, stay active and meet new friends.
Because we only serve a small number of participants, our team can spend much more time thinking about what you want and how to keep you safe and independent at home for as long as possible. We take responsibility for all your healthcare and social services needs.
We are here because of the philanthropy of Gary and Mary West, residents of San Diego County who are passionate and dedicated to improving the lives of seniors. Throughout their lives, the Wests have seen first-hand the challenges many seniors face—and hard choices they have to make—every single day. They believe these individuals, many of whom have built our roads, taught our children and served our nation, deserve our help and respect.
Gary and Mary West created a family of nonprofit organizations called West Health. They all share a singular purpose of creating new models of care for seniors that help them age with dignity, quality of life and independence. It’s what we call successful aging, and we want these models to be replicated across the country through our medical research, policy, advocacy and philanthropy initiatives.
The West’s newest program is the Gary and Mary West PACE. Our hope is that we can have a significant, lasting impact on seniors who need help – perhaps someone like you or someone you love.
The Gary and Mary West PACE center provides a full range of compassionate care including medical services and personal support to help you live a healthy and independent life. Here, you will also find new friends and the loving care of your dedicated PACE team who share the same goal—we want you to live your life in your community and maintain your independence for as long as possible.
All of this is available at little or no cost to you, based on your eligibility.
We hope you will come visit us and experience our program that provides and coordinates all the care you and/or your loved ones needs. This is the first PACE program offered in San Diego’s North County, and we would love to show you how our approach has the potential to transform your life.
