Hi, we're Five Good Friends

There are only a few places on earth where people live longer, happier and healthier lives. The people living in these zones share a key thing in common: friendship. The power of friendship is believed to contribute to a much better quality of life in old age.

This understanding is not only reflected in our name – it is our guiding philosophy.

Inspired by the world’s most long-lived cultures, our mission is to help people live vibrantly in their own homes, connected to their friends and communities, doing what they love.
