Friendly Home Member Menus

We are pleased to offer our Members fresh, seasonal and delicious meals served in neighborhood dining rooms.

I think we are the luckiest people in the world to live here. I just love the way we are treated with such care and respect. You know people care about you here and will go to any length to see that we are happy. How could you be luckier?
I could not imagine my father getting better care anywhere than what he is receiving at the Friendly Home.
I’m a happy camper!
I am so impressed that all the staff know my name.
My mother is happy and content here. I am so pleased!
Very beautiful grounds which I use almost daily during good weather – I like the courtyards and the front porch. I feel very safe. I also enjoy the meals, and my laundry and clothes are well-cared for. My room is always clean.
