It also demonstrates that we have been recognized as one of the most engaging senior living organizations across the nation. A proprietary algorithm, developed by Holleran’s highly trained statisticians, researchers, and analysts, determines Choice Community Award recipients.

For Friendship Village Tempe to earn the Choice Community Award distinction means, “Friendship Village’s reputation for operational excellence isn’t an accident nor is it luck. It’s the result of an ongoing Village-wide concerted effort to ensure we have and retain a highly engaged team. It’s also not a coincidence that we have the highest level of resident satisfaction amongst the more than 150 communities that Life Care Services manages nationwide. Our team and their level of engagement is the secret sauce to the ongoing success that Friendship Village enjoys.”
