Reviews of Valley Village Retirement Community in Santa Clara, California
April 30, 2023
I visited Valley Village Retirement Community. It was the most affordable one. I think it's $1900 for a little apartment with three meals a day and one weekly housekeeping. They have a little clinic where you can go every day and have them help you take your medicine and take your blood pressure, just kind of like the basics. They have a bus that'll take you to your doctor up to ten miles away. They also have activities, entertainment, and a washer and dryer in the building. It covers all the utilities, and it's a 55 and over community. So, the people there are a little bit younger. It seems pretty vibrant in there. The building's a little older, but they make up for it with everything else they do. For the price, it was the best value out of everything that I saw. It was nice, clean, and everything. It was like a village. Some houses are part of it, and then there's the apartment building part of it. The construction is probably mid-century. So, it's not like a brand-new facility, but it's very well-maintained and clean. Everybody there seemed happy, engaged, and a little bit younger. With some of them, it just seemed like a bunch of 19-year-olds sitting in chairs and these people seemed to be moving around doing things.

Valley Village serves three meals a day, except on Sundays when they serve two meals. My father-in-law is renting a room on the 5th floor. The place is decent; it's an old building, but it's affordable, and it's close by. They don't have the best amenities, but it works for us. There were some issues when they refused to turn on the AC even though it was a really hot day. The food is good, they have a salad bar, and they have a lot of different activities. The residents seem nice.
