Care When You Need It

You can’t anticipate what tomorrow may bring, but when you choose to live at Friendship Village you can count on one thing – the right level of care, at the right time, when you need it. As one of the best senior living communities in Illinois, we provide the highest level of care and compassion. Whether you need a little help with your daily activities, memory support, long- or short-term rehabilitation therapy or skilled nursing care, Friendship Village offers a variety of services, backed by our Life Care contract. 

On-Site Ascension Health Physician Center

While you're free to select your own physician provider, you have the choice of a convenient option right on campus. Offering primary healthcare services by appointment to patients 65 years and older, the Ascension Health Physician Center is conveniently located on site, just a short walk from your door, so there’s no need to drive or arrange to be driven to appointments. Staffed by two physicians and a licensed nurse practitioner, the physician center coordinates residents’ care and recommendations with Friendship Village’s wellness, rehab, assisted living and skilled nursing teams, and works closely with area hospitals, Alexian Brothers and St. Alexis Medical Center.


Visiting Doctors

Friendship Village residents also have monthly access at the Ascension Health Physician Center to visiting specialists including dentists, audiologists, podiatrists, cardiologists, and internists. You don’t have to be a patient of Ascension Health to benefit the visiting specialists.
