About Vi

For more than three decades, we’ve been helping seniors enjoy every day of their retirement years.

Vi operates 10 Life Plan Communities across the United States where residents enjoy stylish apartments, world-class cuisine, varied lifestyle programming, and deep friendships.

Our Company

Vi is dedicated to providing quality environments, services, and programs to enrich the lives of older adults. Our goal is for our residents to continually experience the finest in senior living.

Founded in 1987, Vi first offered rental senior housing under the name Classic Residence by Hyatt. These communities were designed to translate the Hyatt brand’s renowned luxury and hospitality to the retirement world. 

Vi acquired its first Continuing Care Retirement Community — Bentley Village in Naples, Florida — in 1992, beginning our trajectory into what we are today: luxury Life Plan Communities offering a retirement lifestyle that integrates holistic wellness, social independence, and access to a continuum of care — all onsite.

In 2010, Classic Residence officially rebranded as Vi (pronounced “vee”), derived from “vida,” the Latin word for “life.” Since then, Vi has grown to 10 vibrant communities across the United States, and today more than 4,000 seniors proudly call Vi home. 

Throughout Vi’s history, we have maintained our commitment to not only help seniors live independent lives on their terms, but also provide a nurturing environment for our employees to build fulfilling careers of service and care.

Today, we support more than 2,900 employees in our corporate and community offices who are deeply committed to the care of our residents. The future success of Vi depends on maintaining a standard of excellence in all phases of resident services and relations.
