Friendship Village ranks among the best choices in senior living communities nationally. Our commitment to excellence and continuous improvement in the quality and delivery of our services have earned us accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), the only independent accrediting body in our field. A survey team visits our community every five years to evaluate our performance against more than 1,200 quality standards. CARF, along with an outside auditor and actuarial firm, measure Friendship Village annually against standards for financial integrity.
We were the first Life Plan Community in Illinois to receive accreditation and are among just 16 percent of Life Plan Communities nationally that submit to CARF’s independent review.
We are also the only Life Plan Community in the state to have received the five-year accreditation six times.
Friendship Village is proud to be named a 2021 Readers’ Choice Top Pick for Best Retirement/Assisted Living Facility and Best Place to Work from the Daily Herald.
