Myth #3: I’m not old enough for a community like this and….I'm not ready

Many think moving to a senior living community means giving up your independence. That couldn't be further from the truth. You are actually gaining more independence by moving to a community like Friendship Village.

One of the most common myths about senior living communities is that they are designed only for older seniors with a more sedentary lifestyle. Did you know you can move in at just 62? Why wait? 

When a life changing event happens; an illness, health complication or injury, it’s often times too late. You've worked hard to get to this point in life. It’s time to reward yourself. 

Having said that, did you know that the 80-and-over population will double between 2015 and 2035 from 12 million to 24 million? Making the move earlier, rather than later, ensures that you can move and start living in your new home and new life based on your desires, not availability. 

As Chicagoland's premier senior living community, Friendship Village wants to help you focus on what truly matters- living your life to the fullest. That is why Friendship Village backs that reassurance with a 6-month satisfaction guarantee, but once you experience all that Friendship Village  has to offer, you will understand just how special our community truly is.

Making the decision to call Friendship Village home while you’re active and independent gives you the ability to enjoy your best years. You stay in control of your life knowing that we’re here along the way. And while you may never need it, if any issues were to arise, we have you covered. It’s important to remember that moving to Friendship Village is just the beginning. You aren’t uprooting your life; you're owning your future.

The 80-and-over population alone will double by 2035 from 12 million to 24 million. 
82% of adults ages 65 to 74 rated their overall health as excellent (18%), very good (32%) or good (32%).
