Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Beautiful very clean facility, Allows for Independent Living to Assisted Living to Monitored Living as needed, Of 5 facilities visited, Galleria Woods had the floor plan that was our favorite. Church services in a beautiful on-site Chapel, Washer/Dryer combinations in every apartment, Open floorplans, Stainless Steel appliances in the Kitchen, Residents must press a button in their apartment each morning by 10:00 am notifying security they are okay. If action does not occur, the staff checks on the resident. Clearly the resident’s safety, enjoyment, comfort and wellbeing are a high priority of Galleria Woods. The cons for us were: While lease cost is on the lower end Galleria Woods requires a Life Care Option. For the unit we looked at, the cost was $151,000 for 0% Refund Plan or $200,000 for 50% Refund Plan. This is in addition to the monthly lease amount so Mom’s move in cost would be $202,785 if we selected the 50% option. There are certainly benefits to a Life Care Option as it provides guaranteed care for life and reduced monthly cost for Assisted or Skilled Nursing care. This may not be as much of a financial burden on a senior if they are selling their residence to move into Galleria Woods. We have no timeframe for selling Mom's house so it would be a financial burden to raise that startup cost. Meal package only includes 1 meal per day. Other communities we visited provided Breakfast + Lunch or Dinner. Cable TV is excluded in lease cost. All other facilities visited included Cable TV.

Needs More Services!!

I didn't really have a good feeling about this community. It was not very clean and my tour was quick. I did get to see everything like the rooms and dinning room. I however , didn't get to see interactions between staff and residents. The activities that were offered and the amenities didn't really meet my expectations. My tour overall could have been a little better.

I felt at home as soon as I saw it!

I felt at home as soon as I saw it! Everyone was so friendly! The buildings are so well=built , well-kept, and well decorated. And I love all the activities: I have said that it is like being on a cruise ship all the time! Also, the food is both delicious and nutritious. I was able to stay overnight for a trial. I met some of the residents then and was able to ask questions. The apartment where I stayed was inviting and so peaceful, and my every need was taken care of. I would really advise anyone considering Galleria Woods to do this! Right now I am really looking forward to becoming a part of Galleria Woods!
