Senior Independent Living at Friendship Village: Garden Homes

Friendship Village is the only retirement community in the entire Kalamazoo area to offer the option of residing in your very own, impeccably appointed independent living home. Like our independent living apartments, Friendship Village Garden Homes give you access to a wealth of customized amenities and services and a full calendar of cultural, social, and recreational activities both on and off campus. And now, with our FVKLiNKED smart technology in every independent living residence, you’ll be able to access community announcements, campus events, menus and lots of other information regarding our services and amenities using simple voice commands with a Village-provided Amazon Echo or through your personal smart phone or tablet.

Professionally staffed Assistance-in-Living and Home Health services are available for a fee in your Garden Home to ensure you can enjoy your independence for as long as possible.

I was surprised by the volunteer opportunities and fun events like the happy hours and picnic luncheons. I also enjoy the opportunity to attend special concerts and plays!
