Friendship House of Hopkinsville is operated in connection with the Christian church. It's quite large, it has apartments of different sizes, and it also has a nursing home on the same campus. Of all those I've visited, that is the best. You buy into the independent living apartments, so when you pass on you have something you own, and I like that part of it. They seem friendly people. The place is very well maintained. They have activities that appeal to me, including religious ones. If I ever have to go to one, that's the one at the moment I would choose for myself, but I'm not ready for that yet. If I could get my friend up here I would. I went over and investigated it myself. I was taken on a tour of it and that was before we went into quarantine. The staff was excellent.
The apartments were very well maintained, they had considerable space in them, and the finances were better than what I've seen elsewhere. I would give them a very high rating on what I've seen. I did not inspect the nursing home itself. They had bible class, all kinds of parties, constant activities that people can go on, trips, and things like that. On the whole, it's a very good place. It's not too far from the central part of the city. It's maybe a mile or a mile and a half from the downtown, but an ideal location. It's by far the best thing I've seen. I prefer the ones that are operated by religious groups. The ones that are operated for profit seem to just cut cost at every possible opportunity while the others try to get service.
