About Us

At Élan Buena Vista, we strive to maximize choice, independence and enjoyment for seniors and their families. The residential setting is service-rich, with engaging activities and vibrant lifestyle choices. The community offers independent living as well as neighborhoods for assisted living and memory care.


Centrally located at the intersection of Buena Vista Blvd. and East County Road 466, Élan Buena Vista provides close proximity to outstanding shopping, restaurants, healthcare and other services. Still it’s just 90 minutes north of Orlando in The Villages age-restricted retirement community of central Florida, not far from Ocala.


The management team bringing leadership expertise to Élan Buena Vista from day one is Life Care Services®, An LCS® Company. Life Care Services leads the way in senior living with over 40 years of proven experience. This innovative leadership brings passion and performance through strong financial stewardship and lifestyle-centered services, as well as high-quality health services in communities as unique as the individuals who live in them.


Health and Wellness

Health and wellness means having a balanced life rich in vitality and well-being. At Élan Buena Vista, we want to assist our residents in achieving a healthier and happier lifestyle. That’s why we have HealthyLife™ Services. It’s a comprehensive program designed to enhance and enrich residents’ active lifestyle by offering new opportunities in four essential areas of life:

1) Fitness, 2) Nutrition, 3) Active Life, and 4) Well-being.


Breakfast, lunch and dinner are more than meals at Élan Buena Vista, they are a delicious and fun experience with a choice of dining venues in the community. You’ll find a fine dining restaurant with a varied menu of nutritious chef-prepared meals, a casual bistro/coffee bar for light meals and snacks, plus a private dining room for family events and celebrations.

Ambassador Program

We understand work schedules or distance just don’t allow families to spend all the time they’d like with loved ones. So, the Ambassador Program offers extra companionship through custom one-on-one packages tailored to meet your loved one’s interests. Event packages can include anything from a round of golf and lunch, a walk and picnic in the park, a matinee movie or mall shopping trip and snacks—and so much more. As a general rule, four-hour event packages start at $150, including a written summary and pictures so you can be part of the fun, even if you can’t be there.
