Simi Valley Assisted Living Simi Valley is named for one of the two Chumash Native American villages that once occupied the land. This 42-square mile city is nestled between the Simi Hills and the Santa Susana Mountain range, a picturesque area that has served as backdrop for famous TV series such as Gunsmoke, M*A*S*H and Little House on the Prairie. The city is known for its friendly community and has been repeatedly rated as one of the safest places to live in the U.S. With plenty of senior services and relaxed recreational opportunities, Simi Valley assisted living is an ideal location for your loved one’s happy and healthy retirement. Simi Valley Recreation Simi Valley boasts 35 well-kept parks to provide residents with a taste of the outdoors. One of the most popu- lar, Corriganville Park, was once a movie production ranch. Simi Valley Town Center Mall is the city’s main shopping complex. The mall hosts a farmers’ market every Fri- day afternoon, but Simi Valley senior living residents also have the option of visiting nearby Ventura County Farmers’ Markets on other days of the week. Simi Valley Activities Residents of Simi Valley assisted living communities are welcome to tour both the Strathern Historical Park & Museum and Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library. In addition, Simi Valley is the only place to view the unique artistry of Grandma Prisbrey’s Bottle Village. The Simi Valley Senior Center is committed to enhancing the lives of those “50 years and better” by providing daily activities and lifelong learning programs. The city’s Council On Aging (COA) is an advisory body elected by senior citizens to identify the community needs of its elderly residents. Simi Valley Medical Facilities Simi Valley Hospital has a philosophy for treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. This full-service medical center provides for the healthcare needs of the community. Former First Lady and breast cancer survi- vor, Nancy Reagan, sponsors the hospital’s acclaimed Nancy Reagan Breast Center. Another high-quality facility, Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center, is located only six miles away in Thou- sand Oaks. Simi Valley Transportation Simi Valley Transit (SVT) provides quality fixed-route and curb-to-curb bus service to Simi Valley assisted living residents. The agency’s paratransit line (ADA/DAR) cooperates and connects with ADA services in sur- rounding cities to allow seniors aged 60 and over access to the entire county of Ventura. Metrolink Ventura County Line offers transport to Los Angeles (L.A.) with connections to other areas and ser- vices from L.A.’s Union Station. As the presidentially-preferred California city of the Reagan family, Simi Valley is also an excellent choice for your own senior loved one.
