Becoming a Resident

Join a Welcoming Community of Friends

Friends Homes is a vibrant, active community that empowers residents to maintain their highest potential for wellness and independence. When you join our Resident of the Future waitlist program, you are taking the first step toward a secure future—and peace of mind for yourself and your family.

We welcome all potential residents without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability, or familial status. There are, however, two qualifications for residency in independent living at Friends Homes:

Age: Residents must be at least 62 years of age to reside in a Friends Home apartment, townhome, or cottage.

Health: Incoming residents must be capable of complete self-care.

Before applying for residency at Friends Homes, we encourage you to schedule a personal tour and visit both of our campuses, Guilford and West.
