The Redwoods has been a pillar of Mill Valley, an active participant in the vitality of the area, and an affordable option for seniors since 1972. We are a locally managed, private, non-profit, continuing care retirement community. We offer Independent Living and Assisted Living apartments as well as Skilled Nursing in our Health Care Center, inclusive of short-term rehabilitation services and Marin’s first, and only inpatient hospice center.
Residents are able to enter directly the area that meets their needs best. Some are with us for a short period and others for many years. The residents represent a diverse range of experiences, backgrounds and interests. The common denominators are friendliness, being supportive of their neighbors and a desire to engage in the world around them. We are home to singles and couples as well as a variety of well-behaved pets.
We are innovative and strive to transform attitudes so that later years are recognized as a dynamic phase of renewal, discovery and choice. It is paying off. The Redwoods has been named a “model facility” by LeadingAge, won the Marin IJ’s Reader’s Choice Award for best retirement community and the Pacific Sun’s best of Marin award every year.
Located on 10-acres of flat land adjacent to the Bothin Marsh and Richardson Bay, the Redwoods has an amazing location with beautiful views of Mt Tam, the Headlands and the city, It also boast the convenience of nearby shopping, restaurants, schools, the Community Center and walking trails. In addition, we provide regularly scheduled transportation for appointments, shopping, events and excursions around the area. We offer a full spectrum of programs to enhance residents’ health and well-being. We have a 26-page catalogue of the programs and events that occur each month, many of which are led by residents.
Meals are a key part of health, enjoyment and a social life. Our Dining team offers a variety of nutritious and delicious meals prepared by our in-house chefs. Meals are enjoyed in the dining rooms, or on our beautiful outdoor patios, and room delivery is available. There is also a catering menu for special events.
Safety and security are paramount. The Redwoods was one of a few communities in the US to have no COVID-19 positive residents in nursing or assisted living. We offer round the clock security, emergency call systems in each apartment, and well-trained staff to handle any situation. Our smoke detection system and sprinklers provide excellent fire safety. Our new generator will power the entire campus in the event of a PSPS or other outage.
