Welcome to La Vida Llena. Welcome home.

Live the active life you want to live – today – with no worries tomorrow.  La Vida Llena means “The Full Life”. What separates La Vida Llena from other retirement communities or senior apartments is its commitment to senior residents’ health. We believe “The Full Life” should include longevity and well-being.

See a day in the life of a resident.

The bonds between friends can last a lifetime. Finding and spending time with new friends is the culture that has been cultivated by senior residents at La Vida Llena. Independent living in a vibrant adult community with assisted living nursing care when you need it.

Life at La Vida Llena

Always something to do.

What happens when the power is in the hands of the residents? A robust social calendar with entertainment, education and volunteer opportunities that you actually are interested in. La Vida Llena is proud to offer an ever-changing event schedule based on the requests and desires of the community.

Enjoy an active lifestyle with your new friends in the community doing the things you love. The full life retirement with peace of mind that you will be taken care of with aging in place and nursing home assisted living care, often without leaving your apartment.
