Assisted Living Reviews for La Vida Llena

July 30, 2012

By GoToros55

I visited this facility

This assisted living provider is exceptional. There are two types of living situations - a separate apartment where nurses visit or in rooms in the complex itself. The nurses are very helpful. The staff gets the individuals to and from eating, church, activities, and anything else that might be going on. I had the opportunity to interact with patients and take them to and from their activities. They are all very loving and are kept happy by the staff. The apartments are very nice and comfy, as well as being handicapped friendly. The apartments give independence and the inpatient complex has a lot of activities to keep the individuals busy and happy. There is a little room dedicated to watching TV and mingling with each other. Patients who need help are always attended to if someone needs help, a nurse or another part of the staff is there to help them. I think this would be a great assisted nursing home to live in because of the never-ending good will of the staff and other individuals in the complex.

Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for La Vida Llena

October 06, 2017


I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

We have friends in La Vida Llena. It's very nice. My friends are very happy there. The wife has developed memory issues but she is well taken care of. She is very happy about that. One time they invited us to have dinner with them, and the food was pretty good. They have different restaurants, so you could pick anything you want. I think it is very good because if you have only one place to eat, no matter how good the chef is, you're going to be tired of the food repeating and repeating. I saw the schedule and the whole week is full of activities.

La Vida Llena is very clean and nice looking with nice grounds. I have a friend who's there who I visit her often. They have independent living, assisted living, and a nursing home. If a person runs out of money for the monthly fees, and they're very old or very sick, they will keep them there until they pass away, so they continue to have same amount and quality of care. My friend who's legally blind taught pottery and painting there. The food is tasty and perfectly adequate. The monthly fees are fair.

We visited La Vida Llena and stayed for 3 nights as their guests. They treated us very wonderfully. They were excellent, wonderful hospitality. The place is extremely expensive but wonderful. All the staff we met were extremely friendly, hospitable, and welcomed us with open arms. If they lower their price to about $300,000, we would be interested. Their food was excellent.

La Vida Llena was very nice, and it looked like I could afford to be there. I was very happy when I figured that out, so I didn’t look any further.

We looked at La Vida Llena. It's a life care community, so you must enter healthy and able to care for yourself, and when you can no longer do that, they move you to assisted living or nursing home. The staff was wonderful. Their dining room was lovely. They have a broad range of activities.

La Vida Llena is lovely but you have to buy into it, and they offer all the activities. It’s like a really nice fine hotel; you have a tablecloth and a menu.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and assisted us in almost every way imaginable. The facilities were average, with no obvious signs of negligence with respect to upkeep. The residents seemed well taken care of, as well as happy, for being in a nursing home. Nursing home food has always been a reservation of mine, but at these facilities it was above average, and actually tasted like food. My greandmother seemed to be quite happy with the place, until we got to the room, they are a bit on the small side, but still plenty liveable. There is a bed and chairs and tables like you would expect, but nothing is over the top or out of place. So although La Vida Llena is a beautiful campus, with good food and relatively nice rooms, I think I will find somewhere else for my grandmother, who is picky as all get out.

About La Vida Llena

La Vida Llena means "the full life." Four local churches saw a need for a retirement community that could provide an independent, active lifestyle, with customized levels of care to meet residents' needs through life's aging process.

Part of the full life is having easy access to a wide variety of senior living options: activities, services, and choices. Instead of driving all over town between the bank, hair salon or wellness class, now you've got time to read another chapter or work on your putting stroke. Rather than spending the morning tending the lawn, you can finally try your hand at ceramics, volunteer at a local museum, make toys for young children or swim some laps at the pool.

Amenities and Services include:

  • Heated, indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi
  • Well-equipped fitness center, with personalized exercise and wellness programs
  • Carving
  • Studios and workshops for artists and hobbyists including a ceramics studio, an art room, a fiber arts room with a weaving loom, a unique model railroad room and workshop
  • Events, trips, courses, concerts, and get-togethers—all arranged by full-time activities coordinators
  • Scheduled transportation service
  • Complete maintenance and grounds keeping services
  • Emergency call system and 24-hour courtesy patrol
  • Bank
  • Hair salon
  • Card room
  • Resident garden area
  • Putting green
  • Sculpture garden
  • Library
  • General store

We invite you to our warm, welcoming community!
