Friends Homes, catering to the 60+ demographic, was founded as a non-profit by the North Carolina Yearly Meeting of the Society of Friends (Quakers). Friends Homes Inc. was chartered in 1958, in 1968, opened the New Garden Road facility and in 1993, opened Friends Home West. Both communities try to provide an affordable environment that fosters independence and a sense of wholeness in a secure environment*
We chose this unit to feature because when we were out walking around, we loved the sense of individualism that radiated from the stepping stones to the dressed cement goose on the patio. If you head out that back door, you can be relatively removed from neighbors and all of the planned and structured events. If you head through the other door, to the interior hallway, you can be as connected as you want. Greensboro has plenty to offer for people at all stages of life.
