Senior Living Advisor
Tamara Stroike is a Senior Living Advisor at Bella Vida at La Cantera. She brings over 30 years of experience within senior living and has seen it transform over time. Having served as an expert and resource for seniors navigating the complexities of healthcare and planning for joining a continuing care retirement community, Tamara has a servant-hearted approach. She’s opened over a dozen senior living communities around the country and is looking forward to being part of the long-term vision for Bella Vida. “Every chapter of your life can be what you want it to be,” noted Tamara. “In my experience, today’s seniors have changed. They have different tastes and diets, they are healthy and active, and they are often well-traveled. They also have different expectations of what a beautiful life means. That’s what is exciting about Bella Vida. Here we will meet – and exceed those expectations.”
