Our Community

Bella Vita is a three-building, 112-apartment home, just 25 miles south of Sarasota. With a warm and family-friendly atmosphere, we feel like home the moment you walk through our doors. This is a place where home and community come together, and where independence and personalized care are partners in an environment of wellness.

Private residences feature screened lanais and full kitchens, with beautiful renovations including granite counters, tile floors, crown molding, new cabinets, lighting and appliances. Group common areas include a lovely dining room, spacious family room, library and outdoor swimming pool, giving residents and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another.

An Active and Engaging Lifestyle

Every day is like a get-together with good friends and family. Whatever your interests, we work hard to plan meaningful activities and educational programs that provide you with numerous choices. With a wide array of services and amenities, you’ll find it easy to make friends and try new things. We offer something for everyone, and our dedicated staff is available 24-hours a day, ensuring we will meet all of your needs.

Bella Vita is only 3 miles from the beach and two miles from the Venice Theater and charming downtown Venice. We offer a wide range of activities each month, including exercise classes and community outings. Residents can participate in programs like jewelry making, tai chi, Mind Aerobics and card games. We even have our very own Bella Vita bowling league every Wednesday!

Optimum Life®

Optimum Life is a bold initiative that defines the way we live. By balancing six key dimensions of wellness with purpose, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual fulfillment, Optimum Life helps you live at your peak level within a lifestyle that promotes health and wholeness. Intended as a journey of self- examination and discovery, it includes services, features and benefits that allow each resident to reach these goals, regardless of real or perceived limitations.

Fine Dining

Brookdale’s substantial investments in our Culinary Arts Training Program and staffing allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From community chefs, to select seasonings and bakery options, we have created one of the industry’s leading dining services. We continue to satisfy the preferences of each resident with amazing dining choices that meet dietary requirements from a registered dietician.

Delicious foods are served restaurant-style, three times a day in our warm and friendly dining room. Each meal consists of two entree selections as well as alternate menu items to choose from. A knowledgable and trained staff makes certain that meals are nutritionally balanced and supportive of the health and well-being of our residents. We can always accommodate special requests and dietary restrictions, and snacks are available throughout the day.

Levels of Care

As the population ages, more people are discovering senior living and the benefits and peace of mind we offer. The Independent Living community, as well as Assisted Living services for those in need of limited care, provides a personal approach to retirement living. We focus on being a trusted partner and listening to your needs, understanding the life you want for yourself or your loved one and customizing a solution that puts that life within reach.

Independent Living and Assisted Living

Brookdale Bella Vita includes two levels of care:

  • Independent Living enables seniors to trade in the chores of home maintenance for the sophisticated comfort of a well-deserved retirement, with wellness opportunities in an active and engaging environment. We offer a rewarding lifestyle for independent seniors, providing vacation-style amenities such as elegant accommodations, restaurant-style dining, laundry services and cultural and recreational programs.
  • Assisted Living offers support with daily living activities needed, allowing residents to live a more secure and comfortable lifestyle. We furnish housekeeping services, transportation and recreational activities, along with trained caregivers providing help with medication, bathing and dressing and coordinating services with outside providers. Our specialized care plans provide an ideal blend of convenience and support.

Brookdale’s Approach

Moving to a retirement community is a big decision and our friendly staff is here to make that transition easy. If your needs change, we are with you every step of the way. The services we offer, combined with our partnerships to reputable healthcare professionals, give you the peace of mind you desire. We encourage residents to stay active and enjoy the many amenities that await them right outside their door.

The customized services we provide, create a way of life that enriches the lives of others through compassion, respect, excellence and integrity. We help ease each resident through lifestyle transitions that complement their vision for all the things they want in their life. At Brookdale, our wide range of services provide an exceptional senior experience for adults who can live independently and for those needing some assistance.

A Caring Staff

We are known for hiring some of the most compassionate, dedicated individuals in the senior living industry. Our community has individuals who go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of our residents. Every day, in big ways and small, our staff lives the Brookdale Family Values. We are grateful for their service, teamwork, integrity and responsiveness and most importantly, for honoring the dignity and expectations of our residents.

Pet Friendly Environment

The Bella Vita community understands all the benefits that pets can offer. We also know that many of our residents can’t imagine life without their furry, four-legged companions. When you make a move to senior living, you shouldn’t have to give up your pet. Not only do they offer companionship, they can also lower the risk for heart disease and help ease any feelings of stress, depression or loneliness.
