Senior Friendships

Grow Your Inner Circle

When was the last time you met a new friend at the pool, or had a good chat with a neighbor over coffee? The best part of community life is the opportunities you have to make new connections around every corner.

Senior Friendships

Find Your People

You know you're in the presence of good company when it all starts to feel familiar—comforting, even. You're reminded that friendships are the true gifts of life, and your social circle doesn't have to shrink as time goes on. In fact, it can flourish. At Friendship Village of Bloomington, you have the opportunity to meet new people and connect over similar interests, hobbies and adventures.

Senior Clubs And Classes

Share Your Passions

More than one third of adults experience some form of loneliness, which according to the CDC can negatively impact our health and longevity. Community living is the perfect antidote to this, making it easy to connect with others during a Tai Chi class, learn mahjong or participate in a book club, walking group or painting class.

Fill your dance card with activities orchestrated across 35 different social clubs, enjoy group lectures and performances, or attend one of two dozen fitness classes each week. It’s easy to start your own social club, too! There’s always something to do with friends!

Dining Venues

Make Moments to Remember

Sharing a meal is an inherently social activity, one that enhances our sense of connectedness and belonging. At the end of a meal, we remember the conversation and camaraderie more than the precise details of our plates. And that’s as it should be. Discover the beauty of connections made when one wines and dines among new friends and neighbors each day.
