While The Redwoods has a lengthy waitlist, many folks wish to be placed on our list many years ahead of when they plan to move. Each year we have residents move in who are ready to come off our waitlist, but we also enjoy accommodating brand new applicants. Please contact our Admissions Dept. for more information.  

Our application fee is $750 per individual. This is a non-refundable application fee and does not serve as a 'deposit' or guarantee of residency. Application materials must be received and reviewed in full to determine an affirmative recommendation for residence at The Redwoods. 


Yes. The Redwoods is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As a stand-alone non-profit, The Redwoods is overseen by a Board of volunteer Directors.  

As a stand-alone non-profit organization, The Redwoods is overseen by a Board of volunteer Directors. 

The Redwoods holds License #010000390 from the State of California, Department of Public Health to operate and maintain the Skilled Nursing Facility. The Redwoods holds License #210202866 to operate and maintain the Residential Care Facility of the Elderly.

The Board of Directors consists of community members who have interest in - and skills consistent with - the needs of the organization. Often members of the Board have had family members living at The Redwoods.

The Board serves without pay for up to three two-year terms. They have responsibility of hiring the CEO, provide vision, policy, and direction for the organization, and ensure the financial health and management of The Redwoods.

The Headlands Apartments are one-bedroom apartments with full-kitchens, which are approximately 500 square feet. The Creekside Apartments include studios of 350 square feet, one-bedroom apartments of 650 square feet, and adjoined studio suites of 700+ square feet.

There is no buy-in but there is a one-time program initiation fee of $7,500 that is paid at the time you move in. This fee does not apply to HUD subsidized apartments or Skilled Nursing residents.

We offer a Guaranty Program that allows family or friends of the applicant to help them qualify financially by co-signing on the lease.

The Headlands Independent Living Apartments at The Redwoods are more strictly a tenant/landlord relationship wherein the rent does not include food, laundry or housekeeping services. However, meals and housekeeping may be purchased for an additional fee. The biggest difference is that Independent Living residents do NOT submit any medical records upon applying and therefore do not have access to our Nurse's office; instead, Independent Living residents would need to hire a private caregiver for any personal care/support needs. 

Our Creekside Assisted Living Apartments are part of our Assisted Living Program and include a 24/7 supervising nurse on duty, weekly housekeeping with linens, three meals daily plus snacks (7 a.m. to 7 p.m. food service), as well as access to optional tailored assisted living services, which can be added or removed as needed. 

We do not offer the Life Care contract. We are a multi-level CCRC. Circumstances sometimes arise that make it necessary for a resident to arrange for other living accommodations.

Yes, residents may bring one car with current CA registration and insurance. Currently there is no parking charge. Available parking is limited and the spaces are not assigned; however, our residents typically have more than enough parking. 

Yes, in all of our Headlands and Creekside apartments residents may have one friendly and quiet dog or cat weighing less than 25 pounds. Fish and birds are also welcome. All animals are interviewed and must be neutered.

Almost all of our apartments are one bedroom or studio apartments. There are very few two-bedroom apartments, although in Assisted Living we have both one-bedroom and "Delux" adjoined studios that rival the square footage of our limited two-bedroom units.

Not at all! Three meals per day and snacks are included in the monthly rent.  

We will do the best we can to match your request at the time you come in with the apartments that are available. After one year, if you would like to transfer to another apartment, you would have priority for any unit that opens up matching your request.

As people age, some level of forgetfulness occurs and may have some memory issues. For most people this is not a concern. However The Redwoods is a very open ten-acre campus with many exits. Additionally, all the apartments have both internal and external doors. As such, it is not a safe place for someone whom presents a wander risk. 

Rent increases are typically annual and range from 4-6%.
