Assisted Living Reviews for Friendship Village of Schaumburg

I visited this facility

Friendship Village of Schaumburg was the one I liked. The whole place was impressive, big, and had a beautiful lobby. The person that took me around and showed me the room was a very nice, friendly lady. I had a good feeling about the place. They had bingo, cards, a ping-pong table, Wii bowling, and a pool. People came in to entertain the patients by singing or just talking. They just had everything there. They served three meals a day. You could drive to doctors if you had a car, but they also had a shuttle that took people to their doctors’ appointments, Wal-Mart, or Walgreens.

We liked Friendship Village. They had activities like bingo, a choir, and a meeting place for church on Sundays.

Friendship Village was an excellent, modern, and very beautiful facility. The people were great. I liked that they had a lot of options for dining and a wide variety of appealing social activities and amenities, like an excellent fitness center and a pretty unique pool.

I am currently at Friendship Village of Schaumburg. It's a wonderful and very well-established place. They have an indoor pool, exercise room, and a lot of activities over the course of the day. They have outside speakers that visit. The food is delicious. The people are friendly. Overall, the community is very high-quality in my opinion.

Friendship Village has nice, fairly large apartments. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a lot of outdoor space, a swimming pool, two libraries, a game room, and church services. They also have a bus that takes residents shopping.

A friend has been. at F.V. for several years and the food has gone way down hill. The veg is often served undercooked making it difficult for denture wearers to chew. A cold sandwich and barely warm, watery soup constitutes lunch most days. Often what is listed on the menu is not available. For the high cost of liviing there, residents should get healthy, balanced meals. It is almost impossible to get ahold of staff. No one answers their phone. F. V. is not where i want to spend my retirement years.

Friendship Village of Schaumburg was unaffordable. The staff was very helpful and very knowledgeable. The apartments were nice. The dining room had a restaurant atmosphere. They had bingo, games, and exercises.

Friendship Village was very nice although they didn’t have patios on the ground floor, but other than that I liked it. They have a swimming pool, fitness center, spa, and several dining rooms; it’s a big place, but they were a little bit expensive.

My aunt lived at Friendship Village for quite a long time, and she needed further services so she transferred to another facility. They have lots of choices for the accommodation, and it is spacious and clean. The dining room was OK, they have multiple bedrooms, and the facility looked secured. They have activities I believe according to their calendar.

Unlike the other places which were more like a nursing home, Friendship Village was more condo-living type. It is continuing care, so my brother can go there whatever stage he needs to be in. Right now, he qualifies for independent living. What stands out to me was that they have all the amenities, like physical therapy and a pool. They did have all sorts of buses that can take you wherever you want to go, like shopping, restaurants, etc. Regarding the staff, they accommodated me really fabulously. The living accommodations were up-to-date and modern. They have accommodations from studios to three-bedrooms and they were all granite, brand-new type or refurbished.

Friendship Village of Schaumburg is top of the line facility. This has got it all. It has aerobic classes during the day, it has a fitness facility, it has a pool, and it also has a beauty shop. The dining room is also top of the line. Everything was very nice. They were very spacious. The rooms and the facility. They keep the facility really updated and modern. Like I said it’s a very, very top quality. The facility is just expensive and we would not be able to afford it.

on the surface Friendship Village is a lovely place. The exception if your loved on needs physical therapy or is moved to the Healthcare facility. Aides are for the most part very nice and patient. However, there is not enough staff for the number of patients. Nursing staff is there only to dispense medication. They put all the residents in front of a tv all day long and do nothing to engage those who are still looking for mental stimulation. They confine everyone to a wheelchair so it is easier for them to manuever them. Even folks who started out being able to walk there are quickly put into a wheelchair. There is no attempt to involve them in activity in the other areas of FV. The food is in disgusting. Often served cold with zero flavor. For those patients with mild conginitive impairment there is no effort made to shower these folks if there is even a minimal resistance from the patients. They simply mark their record when the attempt is made to - refused. UTI's run rampant because of this practice in poor hygiene. Medications must be provided by FV resulting in exhorbitant price gouging. Only adjusted when confronted and then magically the prices drop when someone takes them to task. FV as an organization is only interested in making money and does not have the best interest of our aging community in mind. I would definitely not recommend FV - there are plenty of other places that do not require such a huge purchase with no chance of leaving when you discover the true face of FV because your money is non-refundable.

Provider Response

We are very troubled by the negative experience you had at Briarwood Healthcare Center at Friendship Village of Schaumburg. We are committed to the well-being and satisfaction of every resident. Furthermore, we take pride in earning the confidence of residents’ family members, that their loved one is being well cared for. “U.S. News and World Report” has reported that Briarwood Healthcare is a top nursing home. The prestigious designation was made as the result of collected data from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which sets and enforces standards for nursing home. Ratings are based on the absence of low incidence of deficiencies in state-conducted health inspections, nursing staff time with residents and quality of medical fare. Because of our dedication to providing excellent resident-centered care, we have earned the prestigious five-star rating for Health Care Centers.

The experience of our residents is overwhelmingly positive, however even this one incident is not acceptable. We encourage you to contact our administrator, Tony Madl with your concerns so that we can address all of your concerns.

I visited Friendship Village in Schaumburg, IL for my parents-in-law. It's been in the community forever. It's a wonderful facility but one of the reasons why we didn't select it is because it was more expensive and their doctor does not visit there. They have very nice rooms and I don't think they need to improve on anything.

All three of the facilities seemed very nice. My Grandparents decided on Friendship Village because they offered to remodel the kitchen in their unit because it was very out of date and my Grandmother loves to cook. Unfortunately after them staying for quite sometime they grew to dislike the place due to lack of activities for my Grandfather is very limited on movement. They are exploring other options, but it seems to be the same story at most of these places. After visiting all of the three above; Sunrise, Friendship Village, and The Devonshire it seems that the employees selling units there promise the world and when the buyers join everything ends up sliding down hill. All three places the staff seemed quite nice, but speaking of where my Grandparents are staying at Friendship Village they have very limited activities for my Grandparents and they are having a hard time with my Grandfather not getting the care that he needs. (limited exercise, bathing assistance and bathroom assistance) They have been in Friendship Village for a year plus.

Friendship village varied. Parts of it are very nice and cheerful, with happy residents and lots of sunlight, but when you visited the areas where residents with more severe disabilities lived it quickly became more depressing.On the whole it is a very standard assisted living/nursing facility, the grounds are lovely but besides that there are really no stand out features, the food is bland and very hospital like, the activities normal, and the hallways and corridors are long and confusing. The staff were generally nice, but they have many residents so they couldn't deal with everyone at once.

The grounds of the facility were beautiful. There were many flowering bushes and trees and ponds. The residents can even have their own garden space if they choose. The staff at Friendship was always very polite and accomadating. The building is very secure, as everyone has to be buzzed in. The faciltiy has many places for you to visit with your family and do activities such as pool tables and chairs and couches. There is also a place to entertain your family and have a meal. Overall, it is a place that I wouldn't mind having a family member live.

This facillity has the look of a modern hotel, but beware if your person is not independent, they can not figure out how to navigate the place. A small tiny room for $6,200 dollars a month, it is a shame!

My mother-in-law toured probably 15 residences before choosing Friendship Village. She decided this was the place after just an hour. Within a week of her moving in, she was back to her happy self that I hadn't seen in a very long time! You can be as active and involved as you like here, and she THRIVED! The staff was always friendly and remembered how proud she was of her apartment there, her family and all the new friends she'd made. The amenities at Friendship Village are second-to-none! Not to mention the wonderful food and service. I can openly recommend if your loved one is no longer safe in their home, or just needing much needed socialization, Friendship Village is the place. Great decision.

The Friendship Village of Schaumburg facility is very large, and the people seemed very active (the ones I've seen). I've eaten there a couple of times, and the food is very good. My friend had an efficiency apartment, but she actually moved away from there because it was very expensive. Her family could no longer afford it. It was too costly, and she had a smaller unit. It was very clean, and people were very friendly. I've also spoken to the staff on the phone; they were friendly and answered my questions. I think the food was excellent. The facility is older and very nice. It's not brand-new, but it's well kept. They're upgrading it all the time. They have a pool and lots of recreation areas. They have a beauty parlor, and they have several different restaurants. It's very nice. There are lots of different activities to choose from, including trips. I think their prices are high, but it's a huge place. I suppose they have a huge overhead to cover for.

FSV has pros and cons. My friend just left here because of costs and well other issues too. The outdoor facilities are lovely and well maintained. It’s safe overall and they took COVID precautions seriously. The staff has some very dedicated team members and some who are just awful (especially the activities director who does not like the residents or their guests, clearly). Food is just disgusting and unhealthy. I would always bring food over. The coffee is the worst I have ever tasted. They are very cheap in how they care for residents. The Village put in a bar - how dumb and insensitive for this population. I would not live here myself but again it is nice enough.

I visited Friendship Village in Schaumburg, and I'm still thinking about it. I liked it, but it's very expensive, and there's a lot of stuff that I would have to pay for. It's convenient to where I have to be, though, and they offer almost anything you can think of. The food is very good, and everything is highly rated there. That's probably why it's expensive. It's just so big; they have about 500 people there. You'd better be able to walk, too, because it has acreage and trees around it.

My mother and her sister lived here for 4 years. When we first looked for a senior living center where they could stay together, Friendship Village in Schaumburg, Il. was the only one we found that had 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartments. This was perfect for them. We were very happy with the accommodations and they had a great view on the 3rd floor looking out onto a beautiful, large courtyard. It was great to watch the seasons change every year in the courtyard. The complex is large and provides a great number of activities for them to participate in. They especially liked attending the live stage shows in the theater on the property. Another great benefit was that there is a doctor and dentist office on site, as well as a connected rehab center so many medical services can be taken care of without leaving the complex. We highly recommend Friendship Village for anyone looking for a great place for their senior relatives to live.

We went to the independent living facility of Friendship Village of Schaumburg. It offered everything and it looked very appealing on the surface, but we were unimpressed with the inner workings of the place. The person who we dealt with at the start was very friendly. However, we were very unhappy with the way things wound up. They quoted us one price but then they said we needed different accommodations and then they quoted us an outrageous price. It was a horrible experience. They had a workout facility that was incredible, a full-size swimming pool, several dining rooms, and garages. They were all very friendly (except for the social worker).

Provider Response

Thank you for letting us know about your experience visiting Friendship Village. We are disappointed to hear that it could have been better. Our community offers a variety of pricing structures, as we are aware that not every situation is the same. Our number one priority is the well-being of our residents, and as we learn more about a prospective resident’s needs, the quoted costs associated with the appropriate care may differ based on what we feel provides the most comfort and safety to the resident. We are sorry to hear that you did not have a positive interaction with one of our social workers. Friendship Village strives to offer the best possible service to all our visitors. We would appreciate it if you could call our Marketing department to provide more detail about your experience, as we would like to investigate this matter further.

My mom has been placed at Friendship Village. It is an independent living facility, but they also have assisted living and full care. They even have a lockdown section, but my mom is on the independent side right now with her own apartment. She can come and go as she pleases, but they have a necklace pendant that she can press if she either gets lost or gets hurt on one of their trails. There's a ton of activities, and they take her off-site as well, if she wants to go, but they have a lot of stuff on-site. They have a fitness center. They also have drama and games, like bingo. One of the things that she found the most helpful and she really loved is they have game night, where they do either a family feud or password to speed the residents' minds at work. It's just fun to watch her because she tells you when she gets the answers right. There are people right there if she needs help or if she just wants to visit with other residents. She's not dependent on someone to drive her to a senior community center to go to an event. She just goes downstairs and the events are right there.

What my friend likes about Friendship Village is that the grounds are quite large, and also the fact that they have two libraries. I think, basically, it's the feeling of spaciousness that he likes about the place. It also seems very clean. The staff who assisted us was very informative. Overall, I would recommend Friendship Village to others.

It was a homey place. They offer meals, housekeeping and transportation. However, there was an entrance fee for you to be admitted.
