Discover what’s next after retirement with the Living Well informational series from Friendship Village Columbus


You have worked hard all of your life. Maybe you’ve raised a family and now anticipate or enjoy grandchildren. Perhaps you are not yet ready or able to retire, but are thinking ahead to the day when your time is just exactly that — your time.

This next chapter in life offers many opportunities but also raises some questions. When you think ahead, where do you see yourself? Are you traveling, devoting more time to a favorite hobby or learning something new? Are you going to spend your newly found free time fixing things around the house? No matter what the future holds, we all want the freedom and ability to live happy and healthy lives.

People in the U.S. are living longer than ever before. Many older adults live active and healthy lives. But there’s no getting around one thing: as we age, our bodies and minds change. The NIH: National Institute on Aging suggests tips to stay healthy and active as you age:

  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Keep your mind and body active
  • Don’t smoke
  • Get regular checkups
  • Practice safety habits to avoid accidents and prevent falls

But beyond physical health, spiritual wellness and financial stability are equally important to a well-balanced life. From planning ahead for future healthcare needs to deepening a relationship with a higher power, take the first step toward your future by downloading a free informational series about living well after retirement.

Financial security: Plan, life and love your retirement

Physical wellness: Discover your path to health and wholeness

Spirituality: Find your path to meaning and purpose

We moved here before we were 70 to allow for a pleasurable retirement. The Lifecare contract, safety, amenities and activities supersede any other facilities we considered. Camaraderie between residents and staff is a rich experience.

We moved to Friendship Village Columbus for various reasons. We are reasonably healthy and wanted to be sure we could enjoy the benefits of independent living before moving to the next phase of our lives. Through the experience of some friends we decided to skip the condo phase and go directly to a friendly senior living environment.
