What Residents Are Saying About Life Care

Hear from our residents why Life Care tax benefits make Friendship Village the most affordable choice for senior living.

  • “I started as a Friendship Village renter, and now that I am a Life Care resident, a significant portion of my entrance fee and monthly fees are tax-deductible. This medical deduction will offset taxes I would have paid on my income for any given year. It’s a great benefit once you understand it.”
    Charles, Friendship Village resident
  • "When my wife and I moved to Friendship Village, the deciding factor was Life Care. As a tax professional, I also appreciated that a significant percentage of our entrance fee and monthly fees would be tax-deductible as a medical expense. The tax savings helps pay the rent. Now that we’re on campus, it’s a pleasure to help other residents understand how they may be able to take advantage of this unique benefit.”
