Life Care Services selected as Amivida’s management partner after sale

Life Care Services, an LCS Company, has been selected as the management partner for Amavida, a resort-style senior living community in Fort Myers. The 32-acre campus comprises 28 cottages, 223 independent living apartments, 101 assisted living apartments, 35 memory care apartments, and an on-site Wellness Center.

Ranked as the #1 retirement community by the Fort Myers Community’s Choice Awards in 2023, Amavida’s campus includes a private entrance to the 279-acre Lakes Park. Amavida residents enjoy amenities similar to those found at destination resorts, including multiple pools, restaurants, bistros, lounges, and outdoor dining areas. Residents also have access to on-site courts for pickleball and tennis, an art studio, a library, and an on-site theater.

“Amavida is a vibrant community known for best-in-class services and amenities, and we look forward to serving its residents as the new management partner,” said Chris Bird, LCS president and chief operating officer. “Amavida is a perfect fit for Life Care Services – our rich experience and passion for seniors will further enhance residents’ lives and position Amavida as a premier community for generations to come.”

Continuum served as the exclusive sale-side representation for Quadrum Global, a $1+ billion global real estate investor and developer. Following a competitive sale process with multiple rounds of bidding, a national investor with an extensive development background and senior living experience emerged as the purchaser, in partnership with Life Care Services who will manage the community.

LCS is the third-largest operator of senior living communities in the U.S., operating more than 140 rental and continuing care retirement communities nationwide.
