Independent Living Reviews for Redwood Villa Retirement Residence

May 10, 2016

By Trudy8

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother is living in Redwood Villa independent living facility. It’s the cheapest that we were able to find and the only thing we can afford. The apartments are very nice. This community is basically occupied by people who are relatively healthy. They hire people to come in for an hour here and there, but the facility doesn’t provide that. They have lots of activities, but unfortunately my mother doesn’t take advantage of them. They have trips to take them shopping or to different parks each week to give them opportunities to walk, and they bring in musical people to do sing-a-longs and that sort of thing. What I like best is that my mother has options to move around, to socialize with other people if she chooses to, and is not confined to a bed or anything like that.
