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.
"I want to invite you to join me in taking part in a revolution – a kind, meaningful one – that will transform the way people are cared for in our country."
