We have established this section of our website to provide you with timely information on Hurricane Irma's impact on Vi at Bentley Village.
Hurricane Irma impacted approximately 220 apartments at the community. Work continues on these apartments and will continue over the coming weeks. There are a number of apartments in need of minor repairs whose residents have already returned. We will schedule these repairs at a later date.
Of the apartments that required repairs preventing resident return, we are happy to report that approximately 50 apartments have been cleared for re-occupancy. These residents have been contacted and are coordinating their return over the next several days. We expect an additional group of apartments to be cleared for re-occupancy early next week, meaning the majority of Bentley Village residents will have returned home. We continue to update all residents on the status of their apartment.
Should you have any questions or concerns about the status of your apartment, please contact Vi at Bentley Village’s Maintenance department at 239-432-2250.
We are also planning for our Assisted Living residents to return home. We are required to schedule an inspection for our Assisted Living (ALR) Building prior to re-occupancy and have scheduled the inspection. Based on inspection approvals, the ALR will be ready for re-occupancy the week of October 23, 2017.
Residents who returned from Orlando whose units have not been cleared for return have relocated to The Ritz - Carlton Golf Resort, Naples.
Evacuation sites are as follows:
Assisted Living and Memory Support residents have been evacuated to:
Tapestry Senior Living
2516 W. Lakeshore Drive
Tallahassee, FLA 32312
Independent Living residents relocated from Orlando and awaiting clearance of their units will reside:
Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples
2600 Tiburon Drive
Naples, FL 34109
We encourage you to continue to monitor this site, or you may contact they community for updates at (239)-432-2250.
At Vi, our primary concern is the well-being of our residents and staff. We appreciate your support and cooperation during this situation.
