At Friendship Village of Dublin, we believe the key to a fulfilling retirement occurs when you strike balance between the nine dimensions of wellness: physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, nutritional, health services, vocational and environmental. We believe in this model so much that we often refer to it as The Village Way. Because of this, our staff is committed to creating a community that lives up to its name and supports you as you learn, grow and pursue your lifelong passions. All of our wellness and fitness programs are available to all residents!
The Wellness Center is designed to keep our community fit, active and engaged while ensuring exercise stays fresh and interesting. Staffed by experienced instructors, it provides well-rounded and personalized approaches to whole-person wellness.
Friendship Village of Dublin offers non-denominational religious services on a weekly basis, and your personal pastor or spiritual leader is always a welcome visitor. We also have a spiritual care coordinator that provides non-denominational spiritual guidance, assists and counsels residents and families, conducts religious programs and heads the vespers committee.
Our on-site dietitian ensures your nutritional needs are met and your taste buds are truly satisfied. We also make sure that each of our diverse dining venues provides a wide range of healthy food choices, whether you are stopping for lunch with your spouse, or enjoying an upscale meal with a group of friends.
Our personal trainers will work with you on an individual basis to meet your health and wellness goals. This support, available for an added fee, will guide you through an exercise program designed specifically for you. We’ll help you stay focused on your health and fitness goals and provide instruction for proper techniques.
Twice a month, a licensed massage therapist comes to our campus. If you sign-up for this relaxing and therapeutic fee-based service, you’ll enjoy reduced stress and an increased sense of wellbeing.
“The Wellness Program at Friendship Village of Dublin has been one of the most important aspects of my eight-year residency in independent living. My knees were arthritic and the padding in my shoulder joints was deteriorating. I enrolled in balance and strength classes held three times a week for 30 minutes.
Twice a week, I attended a 45-minute class in the pool doing exercises approved by the Arthritis Foundation. The time has been well spent because I can now walk distance independently, climb stairs and drive a car. I feel blessed to have the counseling and instruction under Jeanne, our Wellness Director, and the classmates who make exercising enjoyable.”
