Life can be unpredictable, but one thing is inevitable: our needs change over time. At some point in our lives, most of us will require some form of long-term, skilled medical care. But when the unexpected happens, it doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your comforts or your passions. Receive expert care in a brand new, modern setting.
It's a gift that I give my children. I will live here until the day I pass away from this life. They never have to think of me or worry about me. I will be well taken care of.
- Virginia Olson, Friendship Village of Bloomington Resident
