Villa Rose offers some of the best in Senior Living in the river bend area. Conveniently located between Edwardsville and Alton, Illinois, Villa Rose is just 25 minutes from downtown St. Louis by way of the 255 extension.
Villa Rose is unique! We are an independent living community that allows seniors to remain as independent as possible while offering them the resources they may need to do just that. What makes us different? We have supportive services available, but you don’t pay for them unless you need them or until you need them. Why should you pay for services you aren’t using? That’s just one of the ways that we’re able to offer the best value in retirement living in the St. Louis region.
At Villa Rose, you have your own private senior apartment with your own furnishings, and you come and go as you please. Yet, with your rent on your apartment, you receive all the benefits that come with living in our secure retirement community, including three meals-a-day, 24-hour emergency response, activities and entertainment, just to name a few. If the day comes that you need assistance—such as help with your medications, bathing or dressing, or getting to and from meals—it’s here. If you need help, even temporarily, you can contract with the on-site private-duty home care service and receive appropriate assistance to keep you as independent as possible, for as long as possible.
We understand that the decision to move to a senior community is one that requires some thought and planning. We encourage you to research your options. Whether you are looking at Assisted Living, Supportive Living, or Independent Living, we welcome you to learn about Villa Rose. We appreciate your interest in our community and hope you find answers here that will make your decision a little easier.
Please call 377-3239 with questions, to schedule a tour or join us for a meal. Thank you for your interest, we hope to see you soon!
