Buena Vida Estates has proudly served seniors for over 31 years and is the only Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Brevard County.

A CCRC, also known as a Life Care Community, is a retirement community designed for the independent senior, 65 years and older who expects to fully enjoy their retirement years. Unlike other retirement communities, a CCRC guarantees assisted living and skill nursing care services at deeply discounted rates to each resident throughout their life and some all within the same community. Buena Vida Estates is governed by an independent volunteer Board of Directors and is a not-for-profit, 501(c) 3 organization regulated under Florida Statutes Chapter 651 by the State of Florida Office of Insurance Regulation.
