Our Promise

Transitioning to an assisted living community is a significant life event.

Like other moves that you might have experienced in the past, driven by changes in career or family, this move will cause some anxiousness but should be overwhelmed by the excitement for new experiences and a better quality of life.

Kensington Place wants every resident to experience the beauty of a vibrant and active community – full of exceptional care, love, and companionship. This driving purpose is why the Kensington Promise is an essential part of every community’s daily experience.

The Kensington Place Promise

Our promise is the foundation of the Kensington Place philosophy.

We appreciate and honor every resident as if they’re our family. Hugs, laughs, companionship, and patient support are routine parts of our every day.

We help our residents feel loved and secure by delivering heartfelt excellence in Alzheimer’s and dementia care in a warm, beautiful environment.

History of Kensington Place

Kensington Place came about because we, as a group of committed senior living professionals, sought to build a community in Redwood City, CA that we’d been dreaming about for much of our careers. We wanted our residents to wake up each day happy and thriving. We wanted families to feel welcome to visit any time, confident they entrusted the care of their loved ones to capable professionals with big hearts. We wanted to be part of a community in a way that makes it better.

Redwood City is an ideal place to realize this dream of a different kind of assisted living community. As a San Francisco Bay Area community in the heart of Silicon Valley, our city seemed a logical setting for an innovative senior living community.

By situating our community in Redwood City we got the beauty of the San Francisco Peninsula and Bay, the majesty of the San Cruz Mountains, and as the city slogan attests: the “Climate Best by Government Test,” boasting 255 sunny days a year.

As if the climate wasn’t enough to make every day vibrant, we also sit in the cradle of innovation – Silicon Valley. Our location has been an incredible benefit to Kensington Place, making us neighbors and beneficiaries to the best technology in the world, and the smartest people. Particularly those who are especially working hard to make the world a better place. Our ethos’ are a perfect match!

Inside Kensington Place

Decades of collective experience in senior living, construction, operations, and management taught us the wisdom of departing from stereotypical nursing home models. Precisely what we did when we built our dream community in Redwood City.

Very deliberately, we built a residence that looks and feels like home. We carefully designed adaptations for seniors, seamlessly integrating then throughout the community to encourage independence and confidence.

We hire only the brightest and most loving consummate professionals to ensure the quality of care and in every dimension of the Kensington Place lifestyle. Further, we foster a culture of service that makes everyone feel important and included the instant they step through our doors.

We invite you to become part of the Kensington Place family. We promise…you’ll know we care.
