Buena Vida Estates encourages residents to bring tupperware to the dining room, so they can take home any food they do not finish. By bringing leftovers back to their apartments, residents save money on their groceries.
Birthdays at Buena Vida Estates are extra special. Once a month, we celebrate all of the residents who have a birthday in that month with cake for the entire community. On a resident’s actual birthday, that person will have a NY Strip Steak dinner, a piece of cake, and be serenaded by the staff. We love birthdays here at Buena Vida and look forward to celebrating them!
Many residents in our community take advantage of our facility and host private parties. We can host and cater your next anniversary, birthday party, or special event. Executive Chef John Delaney will work with you on the menu and all you have to do is send out the invites!
Dining at Buena Vida Estates is truly an amazing experience. Yes, there is delicious food, but more importantly are the sounds of love and laughter you hear as soon as you walk into the dining room. One of the best aspects about this senior living option is when you dine at Buena Vida Estates, you are dining with family!
