An amazing place with a true commitment to excellence!

We used services in the Nursing Care Center and in the Assisted Living areas. My father was admitted from the hospital Trauma Step Down unit after a terrible fall. The staff were all attentive and frequently went above and beyond in the care and compassion they gave to not only my father but all our family members. The entire multidisciplinary team worked seamlessly together for the benefit of the patient. They were all very collaborative with family members and took the time to educate all of us on my father's progress and care needs. I attribute the great care he received with his ability to advance through the continuum of care to the level he has now attained -to live in independent living. All the staff became like members of our extended family. I will never forget their kindness and willingness to do whatever it took to ensure my father attained his greatest capability to return to his normal activities of daily living. Kudos to ALL the Friendship Village Columbus staff!!

Friendship Village is #1 for my mom

Friendship Village is a clean, welcoming, well-run organization. They were very friendly to my 93-year-old mom who moved there to the independent living area.Their activities vary from exercise classes (run by employees) to book clubs, card games, movies and other activities organized by residents. Every staff member that I have encountered has been focused on what is best for my mom. They are extremely accommodating whenever possible. The food in the dining room is awesome! I eat with my mom whenever I can. The salad bar is amazing and entrees change daily. You can get individual sandwiches, etc. by request. My mom's apartment is clean, bright and spacious. I toured other living facilities - some were newer, some were fancier - but I did not find one as friendly and welcoming as Friendship Village.

Can't Say Enough About Friendship Village

I really cannot say enough about Friendship Village of Columbus. The entire staff and the residents have all been so welcoming to my father. He felt right at home the first time he toured the large living facility! After my mom's illness and passing Dad decided to move to Columbus to be closer to his daughters and grandchildren. He and my mom were married just a few weeks shy of 56 years. They were always on the go and had a lot to do! Friendship Village has a variety of activities, hobbies and clubs to join. They invite you...and you go join them if/when you are ready. Once Dad chose Friendship Village he was excited about moving in and getting settled for this new chapter in his life.
