Choose from a number of floor plans while you enjoy all the benefits of a leading Chicago retirement community. No matter where you choose to live, you’ll enjoy a range of services and amenities that are included in the Friendship Village lifestyle.

"We have been living in Friendship Village under the 90 day trial program, and moved here from a few hours away to be closer to our son. This move has been planned over a period of many months and we have worked closely with our Residency Counselor to find the right apartment. Her positive attitude and patience with us showed no limit. We felt fortunate to have such a knowledgeable person to help guide our search. The reason we chose Friendship Village is because of the many positive experiences we have had since moving here. We have nothing but good things to say."

Studios, alcoves, and one- and two-bedroom independent living apartment homes give you a cozy, comfortable place to call home and are available in 14 unique floor plans.

You can also enjoy the balance of outdoor beauty and indoor convenience in one of the patio apartments.
