Home Philanthropy

We often hear from our residents and their families that the Friendship Village of Dublin community is much more than a place to live. When you live at Friendship Village, your neighbors become family. The caring associates who prepare and serve your meals, plan your activities, maintain your facilities and grounds, and provide medical and personal care are a part of that family, too. Are you grateful for the care you or a family member received at Alderwood Health & Rehab? Did a member of our Culinary team help you plan a special event or go above and beyond in a moment of service? Perhaps one of your neighbors extended a helping hand at an important time. Through Friendship & Gratitude, you can share your thanks and support the Friendship Village of Dublin community at the same time.

“The caregivers helped and loved Mom so much. They went above and beyond to help Mom from her first day at FVD, to long term care and moving her to her new room in Alderwood. So many people helped Mom on her journey – thank you!”
