About Vi

Years of Service

In 2012, Vi celebrated its 25th anniversary as a developer, owner, and operator of residential communities for older adults. Today the Vi family of communities consists of 10 continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) across the United States, with corporate leadership committed to providing quality environments, services and programs to enrich the lives of older adults.

"We are extremely proud of the accomplishments we have achieved during the past 25 years," said Randy Richardson, President of Vi. "Our employees and residents can take pride in the fact that we are a stable, national presence within the senior living industry."


In addition to our more than 25 years of service, at Vi we have a track record of sound financial management. In 2011, we paid off the final construction loan on our newest community, Vi at Silverstone, making all Vi CCRCs free of third party debt.

Services and Amenities

The distinctive services and amenities offered at Vi communities cater to the needs and lifestyle of our residents, including weekly light housekeeping, maintenance, and concierge service, valet parking, scheduled transportation, and fitness and spa facilities.

Fine Dining

Vi communities provide a world-class dining experience that supports proper nutrition through delicious and healthful cuisine. Meals are served in well-appointed, restaurant-style venues. The company's culinary program is driven by executive chefs who receive customized training at The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) on nutrition, healthy cooking and baking techniques, flavor dynamics, and food and wine pairing.


Vi is committed to each resident's whole-person wellness, which includes extensive physical, social, and intellectual programming in an environment that provides rich opportunities for residents to positively impact their wellness and successful aging.

Resident Satisfaction

At Vi, we consider resident satisfaction to be a key measure of our success. We actively research and listen to the evolving needs of our residents and prospective residents. Additionally, we survey our residents biennially to gauge how we're doing. We ask them about a number of important topics such as housekeeping, food and beverage services, lifestyle programming, and care.

With more than 90% of Vi residents across all 10 Vi communities reporting back, the 2014 biennial survey results boast an overall satisfaction score of 91%. Additionally, 93% of respondents say they would recommend their community to a family or friend - and 83% of them already have.

These numbers are encouraging to top officials at Vi who consider the survey results to be an important way to ensure we are meeting our mission of providing quality environments, services, and programs that enrich the lives of our residents.

Our Employees

The success of the company is attributable to its experienced, innovative leadership at the local and national levels. For more than 25 years, our resident-centered approach to active living for older adults and commitment to providing quality environments, services, amenities, and care means that we recruit the industry's best talent. Vi employees have a desire to serve older adults and are dedicated to our core values of integrity, compassion, and excellence.
