Question: In a few words, can you describe your lifestyle?
Answer: “I’ve had an adventuresome life. I’ve always been an ambitious person and I’m not your typical female – there’s no way around that. I became a nurse and married someone from India, and we traveled a lot. We got to visit the Taj Mahal and went on a Viking cruise one time even because since my parents are from Austria, they had family history up there. I wish young people had a little bit more opportunity to travel to other places instead of staying where they are because you learn something new – and when I visit other places, I’m always learning. I think it’s really important for them to get a chance to travel to other countries and I really support that. You can’t just sit in your little shell and say, ‘This is your world.’ You have to get out there! Because I’ve been places and seen the Taj Mahal by moonlight and it’s beautiful! I have lived a life of opportunities, and I thank whatever power that I’ve been able to do a lot of things. I’ve had an amazing life.” – Laris Arora, resident Friendship Village Chesterfield

The above photo and text are part of our new year-long project we’re calling 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 snapshot 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!
At year’s end, we will publish A BOOK featuring all the great residents who participated AND EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATES GETS A FREE COPY OF THE BOOK ! During this year, we will also be sharing these photos and text on Facebook and other social media such as Instagram, so look for them and please follow the hashtag #WeAreFriendshipVillage to stay up to date!
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 bit better!
If you are 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 meeting with you as we get to share about the senior living residents who are making our Friendship Village retirement communities so wonderful!
