Q: What kinds of housekeeping and maintenance services are available?
A: Housekeeping, linen service and maintenance are all available. For our assisted living residents, we will make beds and take out trash on a daily basis. Residents can choose to do their own laundry if they prefer. Residents should bring their own linens and towels when they move in. Each new resident receives an hour of free maintenance after they move in for non-essential issues. After that, residents have the option to pay an hourly fee for cosmetic maintenance. Any repairs to apartments fixtures or provided appliances are included in monthly fees.
Q: What are the dining hours? What else should residents know about dining?
A: We serve breakfast from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. our Verde, Azure and Paz venues. Azure is open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. for lunch and dinner. The Lakeside Grill is open from 11:00 a.m. to 9 p.m. For a small corking fee, residents are allowed to bring their own wine for dinner.
If residents are sick, they may have their meal brought to their room by the dining staff (IL) or a care specialist (AL) free of charge. Other room service is available for a nominal fee.
Q: Do you have a pet policy?
A: We happily welcome pets at our community. Each pet, with a maximum of two, must be approved by the Executive Director prior to moving in. If a pet is living in one of our apartments, it must be under 30 pounds.
Q: Are guest suites available? How long can a guest stay with a resident?
A: We offer guest suites for a maximum of 14 days. However, guests may stay for 30 days for an additional fee. All guest stays must be approved by the Executive Director.
Q: Do you offer transportation for residents? What about parking if we bring our own vehicle?
A: We offer scheduled transportation two days a week within a 10-mile radius of the community. With a two-hour minimum, residents will have the option to pay for private transportation. Amavida provides plenty of parking space for resident vehicles, which we assign close to their apartment. Valet and concierge service will be available Monday through Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The community has a security gate at the entrance, and residents will receive a pass with their car to open the gate. Visitors will need to hit a button to talk to security. We also have bike racks on the property.

A: Hotwire Internet is included in the monthly fee. Our community line has a speed of 10 Gbps, which allows residents to subscribe to speeds between 1.5 Mbps and 100 Mbps. Telephone service is included for local calls, but residents must provide their own phone. DVR is not included in our Internet package, but residents may upgrade.
Assisted Living residents will be given a Skynet Emergency Call bracelet or pendant. Independent Living residents can decide if they would like to purchase one as well.
Q: What will the services be in the clinic?
A: Our Wellness Clinic will provide care for routine injuries and illnesses (no lab services). Medical oversight will be provided by an RN or Physician Assistant. Our Skilled Nursing component is projected to be completed in approximately two years, when we will offer more advanced medical care for acute situations.
