About Our Senior Living Community in Sonoma County

Get to know us.

We offer senior living and a continuum of care in a vibrant setting. Our Santa Rosa retirement community is located just off the 101 freeway, close to Sonoma wine country and nestled on 15 acres of beautifully landscaped property. Residents of our community live amid nature, surrounded by green space, gardens and parks, yet conveniently minutes away from shops, restaurants and urban conveniences.

Senior living with no upfront entry free buy-in.

Arbol Residences is the only CCRC (continuing care retirement community) in the Sonoma area to offer senior living for a simple monthly rental fee. No entrance fee is required to become a member of our senior living community, or to be directly admitted to an appropriate level of care.

The monthly rental fee includes a comfortable, well-appointed residence designed with every comfort in mind. Our courteous staff members take care of home maintenance, housekeeping and laundry, and residents enjoy a range of dining venues, services and amenities, and activities and wellness programming. A high-quality continuum of care on campus ensures peace of mind if health needs ever change.

Our partners — the best in the business.

We’re proudly managed by Life Care Services®, An LCS Company. With over 40 years of experience, they’re among the nation’s leading operators of rental senior living communities and Life Plan Communities. They put strong financial stewardship, high-quality health care, and a slate of life-enhancing services to work so our residents can enjoy their lives to the fullest.

They’ll be welcomed like family.

Arbol Residences is a lively, vibrant community with residents who come from all walks of life. There’s a family-like atmosphere, and a real sense that residents and staff truly care about each other. Residents have a hand in planning community activities such as daytrips in the Sonoma area, lifelong learning and volunteer groups, and attend activities and events according to what interests them.

We offer state-of-the-art health care.

Health care is available on an à la carte basis, so residents pay only for what they need. Assisted living care is offered in the privacy of one’s home, while skilled nursing and rehabilitation services are provided at the Arbol Post-Acute Care Center on campus. Alzheimer’s care and dementia care are provided in a specially designed and secure memory care neighborhood.
