Vision

Building on a history of excellence to create the most supportive and dignified retirement experience in Southwest Florida.

Value Proposition

Aviva Senior Living is the area’s only not-for-profit, rental retirement community offering Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing welcoming all seniors who want a fulfilling environment and superior access to quality health care services.

Promise

Marie Brown, the founder of Aviva Senior Living believed a community could do more and be more for older Sarasota area residents. Together with a group of dedicated volunteers, Marie gave life to a promise in the form of Aviva. That promise was to provide a community where seniors could live extraordinary lives by embracing wellness, life-enriching activities, illness prevention, and dynamic social interaction, built on a foundation of Jewish values. Marie’s vision in 1993 remains at the heart of everything we do and everything we offer here at Aviva. As we begin our fourth decade, we continue to pursue new ways to give seniors more of what they want and what they deserve out of an active aging lifestyle.

faith

Values like compassion, unity, and a celebration of life are built into the very foundation of our community. At Aviva, these values are deeply woven into the fabric of Jewish identity, concepts that have supported the Jewish people for thousands of years. These values are not just Jewish concepts, but universal and timeless ideals. We believe that by building our community on these values, Aviva will forever be the warm and welcoming place for everyone, as our founders conceived. We welcome all faiths and are committed to providing the amenities, services, and support necessary to encourage you to spend your days in the most meaningful ways.
