When can my loved one move to Arbol Residences?
Any time they’d like. We welcome all adults ages 65+ who are looking for a lively, positive, healthy retirement lifestyle.
How are you different from other senior living communities?
We’re the only CCRC (continuing care retirement community) in the Sonoma area to offer senior living for a simple monthly rental fee with no upfront entrance costs. That means there’s little to no impact on your savings or your estate. Your predictable monthly fee includes access to an array of community services and amenities, including the unique services of a Health and Wellness Navigator. If you or a loved one needs temporary care or needs to transition to a higher level of care, you stay in control of the choices, schedule and costs at all times. And if you ever change your mind and decide to leave Arbol Residences, you can do so whenever you wish.
What are my residential options?
There’s a variety of comfortably appointed floor plans for each level of care. Assisted living residents enjoy studio or one-bedroom apartments with all the comforts they’re used to and receive help with activities of daily living in the privacy of their residence. Residents needing post-acute care or short-term rehabilitation choose between a private studio with private bath or a semiprivate studio with shared bath. Memory care residences are private suites nestled in a secure memory care neighborhood.
May I decorate or make changes to my residence?
Yes, other than structural changes. All upgrades need to be approved in advance by our management, but you’re free to add your personal touches to make your new residence feel like home.
Is Arbol Residences a pet-friendly senior living community?
Absolutely. Small dogs and cats are allowed on any floor in Assisted Living.

What types of care do you offer at Arbol Residences?
We provide a full continuum of care on campus:
- Assisted living that provides help with activities of daily living such as grooming, bathing and medications
- Memory care for people with age-related memory loss, including those affected by Alzheimer’s
- Post-acute care: 24/7 skilled, compassionate nursing care at Arbol Post-Acute Care.

Will long-term care insurance help cover the cost of memory care?
Many long-term care policies help cover the costs of both assisted living and memory care, but you’ll need to review your specific coverage to be sure. If you’re a veteran or the widow of a veteran, you may be eligible for a wide variety of benefits available to all U.S. military veterans. Contact our experts in the sales department, and they will be happy to provide you with more information.
