Activities & Programs

Buena Vida offers the Lifelong Wellness program. Formatted to enhance and prolong our resident’s healthy and active lifestyles, this program promotes physical, mental, intellectual, and spiritual wellness throughout the aging process. Included in the program are educational classes and seminars, spiritual services, a variety of fitness opportunities, and social events like concerts, parties, and town outings.

Buena Vida is focused on maintaining our resident’s well-being by facilitating and organizing events that have the GoodLifesm philosophy at their core. Every day in our community has scheduled activities and programs to participate in, although if you’d rather relax and do nothing at all, you can do that too!
