An introduction to senior living
“Senior living” may seem like a simple phrase, but there’s a whole world of options out there as you embark on the next phase of your retirement.
The senior living landscape has three main categories: aging in place at home, rental communities, and Life Plan Communities like Vi.
How you decide which is right for you will depend on a wide variety of factors, from location and cost to lifestyle programming and amenities. You’ll also want to consider the cost and availability of care, should you need it in the future.
If you’re feeling like there’s a lot of information to digest and consider, you’re right! But we hope this page is a helpful starting point.

How we’re redefining senior living
Vi’s roots are in hospitality, and it shows: White-glove service and world-class amenities come standard, along with beautifully appointed homes, gourmet restaurants, top-quality wellness programs, professional and compassionate care, and more.
We’re grounded by our commitment to operational excellence, with a thoughtful approach to service, care, and support that conforms to the changing needs of our residents—and the world around them.
From our spacious private homes to our tasteful common areas, our residents have all the spaces they need for gathering and entertaining, celebrating special moments or just finding a moment of quiet. When you move to Vi, you’ll meet new friends who continue to lead remarkable lives in their retirement — and have the ability to stay connected to the most important people in your life.
Our staff members are part of our community, too: No matter their role, they’re dedicated to going the extra mile to make Vi feel like home for each resident.
Living Well, our holistic approach to wellness, is a thread that runs through everything we do. It includes a wide range of programs and activities designed to foster wellness in mind, body and spirit — as well as a comprehensive approach to expert health care tailored to our residents’ evolving needs.
We’re dedicated to making our residents’ lives better by continually offering opportunities to engage in new and old passions — and live every day as fully and as richly as possible.

Q: What is a Life Plan Community?
A: In our Life Plan Community, also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), residents enjoy independent living while having a plan for continuing care, consisting of access to assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing. Our residents enjoy meals prepared daily by our in-house Executive Chef, an array of lifestyle and fitness programming, and much, much more.
In a Vi Life Plan Community, your monthly fees do not increase from the monthly fees* you pay in independent living should you move to our care center for assisted living, memory support or skilled nursing (except for any ancillary fees for items used in the care center and extra meals).
*Annual, community-wide monthly fee increases also apply. Ask our Sales Team for a history of monthly fee increases.
