Services & Amenities Enhance the Senior Living Experience

When a person begins their search for a senior living community they often first look toward location, the availability of health services and whether the community fits within their budget. These are all important considerations, but we also encourage you to think about lifestyle.

We know that services and amenities play a significant role in your happiness and health. We encourage older adults to take a close look at the events and activities available at a senior living community to ensure they are in line with your interests and desires.

What Matters Most to You?

We encourage those who are considering living at Friendship Village of South Hills to think about what matters most to them. What gives your life purpose? What hobbies do you enjoy?

A senior living community’s services and amenities include things like events and activities, as well as fitness and wellness programming. It also includes the physical spaces where you can enjoy some of your favorite hobbies or pursuits, whether you are a foodie or a golf expert.

Oftentimes, the type of services and amenities you care about and the quality of those options can be the deciding factor on whether or not you choose one community over another. Don’t hesitate to ask questions about services and amenities when evaluating a community.

Questions to Ask About Services & Amenities

While expectations for services and amenities vary, we have compiled a list of questions you feel comfortable asking any senior living community, including Friendship Village at South Hills.

Potential services and amenities questions to ask a senior living community include:

  • What services do you offer that make you stand out from other communities?
  • What amenities are most popular with residents? What amenities are you most proud of?
  • How would you describe the dining experience? Are there varied meal options for residents with dietary restrictions? How often does the menu change?
  • What social activities does your community offer? Is there an activities calendar?
  • What educational opportunities does your community offer?

  • What are some nearby entertainment options? Do you offer transportation?
  • What sort of transportation is available and how frequently is it offered?
