Question: What’s something that makes you feel strong and confident?
Answer: I have been a swimmer all my life and going to the pool here five days a week to water walk has been a blessing because I have had some problems with balance and the water walking has certainly helped. And I walk around campus, too. Depending on the weather, I also walk outside a lot. I try very hard to stay fit and I participate in the balance class and the circuit class and I’m going to try the cardio drumming.
For a long time, I’ve had neuropathy in my feet and have gone to a chiropractor for balance because I have a tilt and that my left foot is weaker than my right foot, so walking and exercising helps me get stronger. And I love exercising in the water. And I love the hot tub almost as much as the pool!

The above photo and text are part of a year-long project we call We Are Friendship Village. We are posting these photos and brief interviews to our website’s blog section every day as we talk with residents at Friendship Village Chesterfield and Friendship Village Sunset Hills. The idea is to give a short introduction to the residents who make up our wonderful senior living communities and give you a peek at something you might not know about them!
After gathering about 200 interviews and photos, we will publish A BOOK featuring all the great residents who participated. AND PARTICIPANTS get A FREE COPY OF THE BOOK! During this year, we will also be sharing these photos and stories on Facebook and other social media such as Instagram, so look for them and please follow the hashtag #WeAreFriendshipVillage to stay current with the project!
We think it’s a great chance to share a bit about who we are! Residents’ participation takes less than ten minutes, so it won’t take much time to be a part of it and we think everyone will enjoy getting to know their neighbors and friends a little bit better!
If interested in participating (or know someone else who might be), feel free to give us a call at (314) 270-7837 or email at email@example.com or drop by the marketing suites in Sunset Hills or Chesterfield. We have 365 of these to do over the course of the year, so everyone is welcome!
We look forward to seeing you as we get to share insights about the senior living residents who are making our Friendship Village retirement communities so great!
