Learn More About Independent Living in Santa Rosa, CA

Surrounded by redwood forests and the famed wineries of Sonoma County, Santa Rosa is a gem of a retirement destination. Creekside trails, nature and wildlife preserves, open-air shopping centers — they’re all waiting to be explored year round in the ideal Mediterranean climate of the North Bay area. Perhaps the city’s best-known attraction is the Charles Schulz Museum, where visitors can view giant recreations of Charlie Brown and the other “Peanuts” characters, but the Railroad Square Historic District and Pacific Coast Air Museum also capture local Santa Rosa history and host annual events. It’s one of California’s most visually appealing locales, too — popular movies have been filmed in and around Santa Rosa since the 1940s, so keep your eyes peeled.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Santa Rosa are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Santa Rosa retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.
