Shirley Hopkins has been a resident of Villa Serena for 17 years.
I moved into Villa Serena seventeen pleasant years ago, six weeks after my retirement. I really appreciate the fact that the Villa is pet friendly, since pets are so important to older people and good for their physical and mental health.

I am so pleased by the architecture of the buildings, the grounds with their beautiful flowers and trees and the pond with the mallard ducks. I have enjoyed the many and varied activities, especially the trips to places of interest in the Bay Area, picnics and lunches out, vehicles provide opportunities to become acquainted with many interesting, and friendly fellow residents. And I so appreciate the sense of security that the gate, the alarm system, and the caring managers provide.
