I Visited This Facility

Friendship Village Columbus is beautiful and very nice. They have a library, a beautiful dining area, a chapel, and a computer room area. They also have an entertainment area, a lobby area that's set up where you can sit down, play games, and do conferences, a fountain area, a PT area with a workout machine, and parking (some of the areas even have garages). The receptionist was very nice and accommodating, and the dining staff was really nice as well.

I Visited This Facility

We visited Friendship Village, it was brand new, and absolutely beautiful. They have huge showers, plenty of room in the bathroom, and non-skid floors, and was very thoughtfully laid out. We're really impressed with the independent side. They have a woodshop, a craft room, and a bank.

Friendship Village Columbus was a very good community, but it was too far from church, and they didn't have transportation. However, it was very nice and very well-maintained. I have friends there, and they like it too. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The people seemed very friendly. They have different activities during the day. I was there for lunch and food was very good, too.

I Am A Current/Past Resident

I live at FVC. Moved in Dec 2, 2013. A very friendly place as the name indicates. It is a United Church Homes facility. It has been in existence now for over 35 years. We will soon be going through a ten million dollar face lift. This is a class A facility that provides full service with it's long term care contract.
