If you’re looking for a retirement community that has a family-like atmosphere, Bristol Village should be at the top of your list. With regular events and activities that cater to a wide range of interests, along with a variety of high-quality living options, you’ll feel right at home when you settle in with us.
Our team of volunteers, nurses and other staff members will go above and beyond to make sure you’re feeling secure and comfortable within our community. This is important to us, because we want every senior here to feel like they’re a part of our family.
Here at Bristol Village, we’ve made it a priority to be as close-knit as possible. Below, we’ve gone into more detail on ways that we encourage a family-like environment within our senior living community.
1. Offering a Plethora of Resident-Led Activities
One way that we encourage a family-like atmosphere is by working closely with our residents and helping them lead a variety of activities. By having our own residents take the reins, we want the priority to be placed on our seniors and their satisfaction. This is done with the end-goal of having these activities bring residents closer to each other and forming irreplaceable bonds.
Some of the activities that residents can choose to participate in include:
- Music groups
- Arts and crafts
- Weekly cultural programs
2. Allowing Pets into Our Community
If you’re a pet owner, you know that your furry friend isn’t just a pet – it’s a part of your family. That’s why we allow seniors to bring their pets into the community when they come live with us.
As a pet-friendly retirement community in Ohio, we also encourage seniors to get the most out of this chapter of their lives by ensuring their pets are by their side every day, whether that’s on a walk at our dog park, hanging out in their homes or anything else.
3. Providing a Faith-Based Community
One thing that makes us stand out as a close-knit community is our Christian, non-denominational faith basis. Within our doors, we revolve our day-to-day care around our spirituality, combined with our four core values:
At Bristol Village, we give our residents the opportunity to make their faith, as well as these core values, a part of their lives through activities such as Bible studies.
4. Offering a Wide Variety of Amenities
Our staff is proud to provide our seniors with a plethora of amenities, such as an indoor swimming pool and fitness center. By offering a significant amount of activities for seniors to choose from, it is our hope that they’ll utilize services that closely align with their interests, and as a result, feel right at home.
By also providing several opportunities to be social within these amenities (e.g., sharing a table with a friend within our library or challenging someone to a game in our billiards room), we hope that seniors will take the chance to get to know each other and become close-knit.

5. Providing Opportunity for Adventures
One of our priorities here at Bristol Village is providing seniors with the opportunity to go on adventures, such as day trips, if they so desire. Traveling in groups with other residents is a great way to get to know each other while seeing sights you may not have seen before.
Some destinations that are within a close distance to our community that you may be interested in traveling to include:
- Columbus, Ohio
- Toledo, Ohio
- Cleveland, Ohio
- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
- Wellsburg, West Virginia
- Indianapolis, Indiana
6. Offering a Friendly, Small-Town Ambiance
One reason why our seniors go from being casual acquaintances to close friends is because of our small-town atmosphere. For starters, the area in which our retirement community is located is Waverly, a city that possesses all the small-town charm you could ever want.
Additionally, our residents feel comfortable enough around each other to grab coffee together, strike up conversations within our beauty salon, and sit together while having a meal at our dining center.
This friendly feeling that encompasses our community is not something you’ll be able to find anywhere, and it’s evident here at Bristol Village because of our family values.
7. Placing a Priority on Health and Wellness
Another way we stand out is through our commitment to health and wellness. We’re always putting our residents first, and, like family members, we want them to have the best care possible. Because of this, we encourage a healthy lifestyle full of positive choices and wellness-related habits.
Some ways we encourage residents to increase their wellness levels for both physical and mental health, include:
- Spending time in our workout center
- Eating a well-balanced meal in our dining area
- Attending one of our lectures or classes on various topics
- Surrounding yourself with friends who care for you
