About our Community

Located just outside the quaint village of Windermere in sunny Central Florida, Inspired Living at Ocoee is an innovative community that offers a choice of senior living options. Whether you are active and independent, need a little assistance, or require personalized memory care, you can be assured that we can help design a rewarding lifestyle that is uniquely yours. We are just a short drive from all the shopping, restaurants and attractions of the greater Orlando area.

Inspired Living is ideal for those who are still active and independent, as well as for those who may need a little assistance.

Our community features beautifully landscaped courtyards with walking paths, putting greens, a dog park, fitness center and swimming pool with tiki bar. Enjoy chef-prepared meals in our elegant dining rooms, or savor a cup of coffee and light snack while socializing in our bistro. Enriching educational and social programming is scheduled daily, and off-site outings and local transportation are readily available.

Should a health issue arise, assisted living and memory care services are available, all within an enriching, homelike environment. Whether you are active and independent or need some assistance, the inspiring choices at Inspired Living are all yours.


Independent Living

Active seniors can choose from elegant studio, alcove or one and two-bedroom apartments with a variety of amenities. From exercise classes to arts, music and cultural programs, we offer fun ways to socialize and stay engaged. Swim in the pool, meet new friends at social events and happy hours, and enjoy chef-prepared meals in our dining room or in one of our country kitchens. Everything you need is here; we even provide weekly laundry and linen service.

Our caregivers, specially trained in memory loss, help design a lifestyle and care plan to suit each resident’s needs. Along with our enriching programming and activities, we integrate individual resident location technology, key-less entry system and security cameras to help promote independence and enhance resident security.

Why did you get into senior living?

After working as a floor nurse for three years, I transitioned into senior living as a second job and immediately fell in love with the industry. So much so that I left the acute field and permanently moved in to the senior living realm. I have such a passion caring for our moms and dads and being able to make each one of their days special.

Who inspires you?

Everyone! Strangers, residents, friends, family members, and everyone in between; people I interact with on a daily basis inspire me. Motivating those around me and being able to positively impact their lives keeps me inspired.

What would people be surprised to know about you?

That I bike almost 60 miles every weekend and love primitive camping!

Beatles or Elvis?

Hmmm… while both are great choices, I am a die-hard Garth Brooks fan!!

How did you wind up at Inspired Living?

After being with my previous company for over seven years, I met with the Validus team and discovered our views on senior living
