Hear From Our Residents

Lifelong Learning

Where learning has no age limit

At Bay Village, we value intellectual growth and continual, lifelong learning through development activities and stimulating conversation. Here is what our residents have to say…

“Many people have moved to the Sarasota/Bradenton area because of the cultural and intellectual life offered here. Bay Village offers many educational events that encourage life-long learning and deep intellectual discussions between other residents. Through these events, I was able to meet a group of intellectually curious and inquisitive people who enjoy lectures, the Great Courses series, and book discussions just as much as I do!”

- Jan, Bay Village Resident

Meaningful Relationships

The place where friends are family

We know that vibrant communities build lives of meaning. That’s why you will find that our connection-focused community is unmatched. Here is what our residents have to say...

“As a newer resident at Bay Village, I was nervous about making friendships. But, I was introduced to another new resident just like myself, Linda. We instantly connected. I quickly learned that we both had lived in NY and our grandchildren were around the same age. Because of our commonalities, we’re now inseparable. Thank you BV for the treasure of our friendship!”

We’re Evolving!

See our improvements

At Bay Village, our goal is to create an inviting living experience that allows you to live abundantly. Our newly remodeled community will feature the latest styles, inspirations, and comforts you yearn for in a senior living community.

Our community has thoughtfully planned for these expenses so that the upgrade costs will not be passed along to residents. It is common for other communities to pay for renovations by increasing the monthly service fee, but we don’t. As a financially stable Life Plan Community, we budgeted for these projects at our expense, not yours! Check out some of the exciting enhancements to our community below.

before-and-after renovation process!

The Market Place

“The Market Place” is our centrally located gift shop and country store that has candy, stationery, small gifts, cold drinks, and more! This is a one-stop shop to suit all your wants and needs.


Our updated library is a beautifully well-lit, quiet space where you can sit back to enjoy a good book or newspaper. Managed by Bay Village resident volunteers, our residents keep the library up-to-date with current books while helping other residents find a good book to read. The renovated Bay Village Library will be home to over 6,000 regular and large print books.

The Palm Event Center will be able to host special programs, activities, and events meant to connect you with others and provide enriching experiences. We have the space to accommodate an event for a large crowd or host an intimate gathering of friends or family.

Gathering Spaces

Our gathering spaces are also getting a makeover! The interior hallways and community areas are refreshed with new paint, flooring, and decor to embody casual elegance. We’ve also added Touchtown monitors with brand new flat-screen TVs on every floor.
