What We Do:

The mission of The Redwoods is to provide a creative, affordable community that promotes good health, well-being and security for a diverse group of elders. The Redwoods is for residents as well as the broader community and provides ways for people to thrive as they age. We respond to individual physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs. We foster dignity, usefulness and opportunities to grow. At The Redwoods and beyond, we work to transform attitudes and practices so that aging is recognized as a vibrant phase of renewal, discovery, service and choice.

Who We Are:

Located in Mill Valley, The Redwoods currently has more than 330 residents and offers four levels of care, which often enables seniors to continue living here even when their capacity for independence diminishes, and they require around-the-clock personal health care. We have consistently attracted creative, lively people, and the diverse interests and abilities of our residents, together with their willingness to share life experiences, help make this senior community extraordinarily special. Among the activities we currently offer are drama readings, culture and language clubs, discussion groups, drumming circles, strength training, yoga, tai chi, bridge, computer training, writing and memory classes, music and entertainment, socials, peace demonstrations and organic gardening. Our campus is ideally situated on ten acres across the street from public transportation, a major grocery store, coffee bar, juice bar, bank and several physicians offices. In addition, the Mill Valley Community Center is located just two blocks away, offering a swimming pool, fitness center and many recreational activities. The Redwoods also borders the Bothin Marsh at the north end of Richardson Bay, a thriving habitat for bird watching that includes a multipurpose path for residents to enjoy one of Marin County's most treasured natural resources.
