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.

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.
