Friendship Village: Carefree Senior Independent Living in Kalamazoo, MI

Independent Living Badge

What’s the inspiration behind Friendship Village in Kalamazoo? You! We designed our senior living community after listening to what today’s seniors told us they wanted: freedom, independence, and the ability to live the carefree retirement life they desire—with even more advantages and opportunities to enhance their lifestyle.

One of those advantages is our Living Well at Friendship Village concept that includes our comprehensive Health and Wellness Navigation program. In this program, our highly trained Wellness Navigator ensures your physical, social and emotional wellness by guiding you through our many services and amenities and cultural, social and recreational activities that nurture all 8 Dimensions of Wellness. Plus, as your health needs change, the Wellness Navigator acts as your liaison, coordinating resources such as Assistance-in-Living and Home Health services to ensure that you can enjoy living independently at Friendship Village for as long as possible.

Real Friendships. True Connections.

Friendship. It’s not just in our name. It’s in our culture. At the very heart of Friendship Village are the warm and meaningful relationships among the people who live here and the sense of connection that exists between the residents and our dedicated staff. You’ll feel a sense of belonging the minute you move into your beautifully appointed independent living apartment home or garden home. It’s a retirement community where you can enjoy life among people just like you—seniors who want to continue to grow, not grow old!

Moving to Friendship Village was more than just a move into a new residence; it was a move into a new way of life!
