In 1979, four area churches recognized the need for a unique retirement community that offered an active, secure and rewarding independent lifestyle. The vision was realized when La Vida Llena opened its doors in 1983.
Working together, St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral, First Presbyterian, First United Methodist and St. Paul’s Lutheran created an exciting new retirement opportunity that enables residents to live a full and active life.
Through their community spirit and a commitment to the common good, a not-for-profit corporation was founded to guide the development of a non-denominational community. The name, La Vida Llena The Full Life reflects what we strive to provide every day.
Over the years, La Vida Llena has more than doubled in size, and expanded to be a full Life Plan community with assisted living and nursing home care options. We have won awards for our facilities and services, staying true to our original vision.
