We liked the community and low apt count, but the apt's rooms were quite small. That along with high price will prob rule this location out for us. But Melany is awesome!

I'm quite impressed with La Vida. It was hard for my mom to make the decision to move out of the family home which she had lived in for 50-years. Melanie and the staff were always very accommodating with us dropping in to view available units and drop in for a meal or activity. It took a little over 6-months for my mom to finally make the move, and she just finished up her first week. So far so good! Pros: - Melanie! She helped at every step of the way. Melanie made sure my mom found a unit in which she could be very happy. Melanie's personality and attitude are a huge selling point. Her enthusiasm for the community is infectious. - Restaurant. The meals are balanced and tasty. - Events. There is plenty to do for mom. - Residents. Everyone had been so nice, and welcoming. - Free HD thru DirecTV. - Movers. The movers (Chris and Jose?) paid attention to detail, were very nice, understanding and sensitive to my moms wishes, and got everything there in one piece. One item was damaged BEFORE the move (by my kid a long time ago) and Jose? made sure to let us know before he wrapped it up. I really appreciated that. (sorry if I got Jose's name wrong!) - Grounds are well kept. It's a smaller community, but the courtyard has two lively fountains, and the mature trees and green space is truly relaxing. - Recent remodel. They really freshened everything up. I love the design choices. My sister in law came for a visit and said it was like an 'upscale resort'. - Festive! They have put out some very festive fall decorations. Just makes you smile :-) Cons: - The Wifi is actually shared, and not private. We had to call Cox to get a dedicated line so we could use Vonage. Not a huge problem, but something to be aware of. It delayed us getting the phone setup for a few days. Had I know I could have had Cox out on the scheduled move date. No other cons that I can think of. Overall very happy! Thanks La Vida team!!

Very well designed community with all desired amenities. Great location, but may decide elsewhere based on location preferences and proximity to family and long-standing connections elsewhere.

I was really impressed with La Vida and hope that the long term care insurance gets back to us quickly with the response we are hoping for.

Melany has been the consummate professional, as well as compassionate and caring during my search for my father's next home. She is not at all pushy; she genuinely seems to want what is best for him, whether or not it turns out to be La Vida. After looking at several possibilities and conducting fairly thorough research, I narrowed down the choices to La Vida and one other Memory Care facility as the top choices for my father. but ultimately my siblings and I chose La Vida. Melany's willingness to answer all of my questions, the expertise of the staff at La Vida (particularly Erin, the Director of Memory Care and Laura, the Executive Director), and the facility and surrounding grounds tipped the scales in favor of La Vida!

Perhaps set a time frame of about 45 minutes for a visit and save further discussions for after the visit of the community.
