Learning about senior living communities can be a difficult, time consuming task. It’s made even worse when some retirement communities make you feel pressured to decide to move right away. Shouldn’t you be able to decide how to plan for retirement in the way that’s right, and at a time when you’re ready? Shouldn’t retirement planning be something that makes you excited about your future? Shouldn’t you have the senior living experience you always imagined? Well, now you can have it all. The answer is Viamonte at Walnut Creek.  The idea of moving to a senior living community is one worth sharing when you’re considering a place like Viamonte at Walnut Creek. This bold new vision for retirement living anchors a walkable neighborhood of shops and restaurants with the peaks of Mount Diablo as a stunning backdrop.  Viamonte is a part of The Orchards at Walnut Creek, a dynamic mixed-use lifestyle center that features the finest architectural and landscaping designs, a state-of-the-art grocery store, retail, and unique outdoor social spaces. While life in a place like this may sound like a far-off fantasy, it’s easier than ever to make it reality thanks to the Viamonte Pathway Initiative.


Retirement planning isn’t a choice that should be made in a rush. When you make the decision to move out of the house you’ve called home for many years and into a community like Viamonte at Walnut Creek, you’re making a significant commitment both financially and emotionally. The Viamonte Pathway Initiative was created so you could take your time, choose the route that’s right for you, and reserve the right to change your mind. The benefits begin the moment you close on your new Viamonte residence. From that date, you’ll pay no monthly fees or interest for up to six months or until you move in. Your satisfaction with your retirement is 100% guaranteed. If you don’t love life at Viamonte and decide it’s not the right place for you within those initial six months, your entrance fee will be refunded in full. This unique set of options takes the risk out of the decision-making process by allowing you to change your plans with no financial penalty—so you can move in on your own time and on your own terms.


From the moment you place your initial deposit on a future at Viamonte at Walnut Creek, you’ll enjoy the benefits of ideal senior living. That’s because your new community will place you at the center of everything, with close to 200 architecturally distinctive residences at the intersection of nature and culture, serenity and vitality, creative cuisine and cosmopolitan shopping. Here, no two days will ever be alike, thanks to an emphasis on arts and culture, fitness and wellness, continuing education and safe socialization. It will all be made possible by an unbeatable array of on-site amenities and a robust calendar of programs and activities designed to stimulate, entertain and inform. As a resident, you’ll have ample opportunities to enjoy classes, concerts and lectures as well as organized trips to nearby museums, theaters, and other centers of cultural and creative inspiration. We will empower all residents to immerse themselves in pursuits that energize the body, engage the mind, and enliven the spirit. When you’re not busy enjoying all the activities Viamonte will have to offer, you’ll find that your new community also has just as many opportunities to relax and unwind. From housekeeping to exterior home maintenance, we’ll handle it so you can focus on the moments that matter most. Our comprehensive list of services included in your monthly fee, as well as additional services available at your convenience, will also feature utilities, cable, wi-fi and internet access, secure parking, transportation, additional storage and more. Of course, with all that time free from worrying about everyday household tasks, you’ll want to enjoy every single day to the fullest. There will be plenty of opportunity for you to do exactly that. Start your day with an energizing and fun exercise class from our whole-person wellness program. Or, pamper yourself with salon and spa services enjoyed right on-campus. For a phenomenal meal with friends, our gourmet dining venues offer club style, bistro and al fresco options.


Enjoying all of this will be easy to do, especially when you’re able to do so while knowing that your future is secure should your health needs change. As a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), Viamonte at Walnut Creek will offer access to higher levels of care in the future (Assisted Living and/or Memory Care), that can be provided within the comfort of your own residence or in another on-campus location designed specifically to meet those needs. The three levels of living within the continuum of care are:

  • Independent Living

Enjoy the independent lifestyle you’ve always envisioned during retirement, with access to the full range of amenities, educational and entertainment programming within our community.

  • Assisted Living

For residents who need help with daily activities, enjoy many of the same culinary, recreational and learning opportunities as those in Independent Living, while receiving customized care from a compassionate staff in the comfort of home.

  • Memory Care

Residents with mild to moderate dementia, such as Alzheimer’s or similar conditions will receive specialized care designed to minimize stress and maintain independence and individuality for as long as possible.


From the Viamonte Pathway Initiative, and the robust array of activities and amenities, to the full continuum of specialized care and a helpful retirement planning calculator, no other community will allow you to retire on your own terms like Viamonte at Walnut Creek.
