The Resident Association is an essential part of the core culture and fabric of The Redwoods' community. Residents meet to discuss and debate various issues and opportunities confronting community life. The Resident Association interacts closely with our Board of Directors and Management.
The Wellness Committee at The Redwoods sits at the heart of our unique campus culture. This is a unique committee by being comprised of 50/50 staff and residents. As such, a high level of exchange and communication occurs. The Wellness Committee sets the pace and direction for many campus initiatives and programs.
Rock the Ages
This unique rock'n'roll chorus is comprised of singers, experienced and new, who want to learn NEW popular music - not the music they grew up with! Music and singing are great for the brain, memory, camaraderie and general well-being. Weekly practices are open to all.
Our residents play an active role in our Emergency Management System. "Corridor Representatives" attend monthly safety meetings on behalf of their floor - and report back to their neighbors with any important updates. Corridor Reps also coordinate with staff in welcoming new residents, and executing evacuation drills.
Meditation and mindfulness practices have proven beneficial to our mental and physical well-being, and offer support for our spiritual journeys, whatever form they may take. Aging brings its own set of challenges and our meditation and sharing creates as sense of community in which to meet them.
Seniors for Peace
Mill Valley Seniors for Peace is a group of senior citizens committed to world peace, social justice and genuine democracy. Founded in 2003 just before the Iraq War, the Mill Valley Seniors for Peace has held a Friday Peace Demonstration every Friday at 4 p.m. (rain or shine) for almost 20 years. (Miller & Camino Alto - come honk!)
