Friendship Village Services and Amenities. Our Commitment to Your Best Life.

At Friendship Village, we pledge to deliver a vast array of services and amenities without compromise, with a dedication to ensuring you an exceptional level of choice, control, and flexibility in everything you do. 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.

The heart of our commitment to your best life lies in 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, psychological and social wellbeing by guiding you through many of the wellness-based services and amenities mentioned below. This includes cultural, social and recreational activities that nurture all 8 Dimensions of Wellness in addition to connecting you to health care-based services should those needs arise.

At Friendship Village I have everything I need to live well; socialization, transportation, nutrition, intellectual stimulation, fitness classes and equipment, entertainment, and much more!

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

My favorite thing about life at Friendship Village is the daily dinner. You don’t have to shop, prepare, or clean up! You can just enjoy a really good dinner.
