It’s not downsizing your home; it’s upsizing your possibilities. 

Located on 20 wooded acres in Birmingham’s prestigious Riverchase area, our continuing care retirement community (CCRC) gives you a maintenance-free lifestyle with the retirement you deserve. Our community has a full continuum of care, including independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing, so you’ll be prepared with the care you might need down the road.

Imagine a retirement where you never stop growing. Here you can continue to be a lifelong learner by exploring new ideas and skills that allow you to engage in life with purpose. Need a little inspiration? Check out these options:
•Swim in our heated, outdoor pool 
•Aquatics classes
•Bridge club
•Tai Chi
•Shopping trips
•Lunch outings
•Art classes?

With several floor plans to choose from, you’ll find just the right home to fit your style. Here are just a few of the features to make you feel right at home:
•Studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments
•Plenty of natural window light and lots of storage with spacious closets
•Select floor plans include a private porch or patio 
•Two-bedroom garden cottages with an attached garage. 
•Pet-friendly
•Utilities, maintenance and lawn care are included 
•Full kitchen with updated appliances ?

Enjoy the local boutiques and world-class restaurants near campus. With the Birmingham Museum of Art, the McWane Science Center and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens close to campus, there’s always something to do here. 

Start your day with a fitness class at our fitness center or head to the game room for a little friendly competition with friends. And don’t forget to schedule your next hair appointment at our salon on campus. It’s your choice. This is maintenance-free living at its best. 

With our continuum of care options, you’ll be prepared with the care you might need down the road. If you need skilled nursing care while recovering from surgery, no problem. Need an extra hand with daily activities like medication management or dressing? We’ve got that, too.  

That means you won’t have to change communities again, even if you or your spouse need more care later. You’ll be able to stay together, on the same campus close to friends, enjoying the same lifestyle in the community you already love. 

Did you know our CCRC offers both rental and Life Care options?

For the rental CCRC option, you pay a monthly rental fee based on the level of care and services you need— with no buy-in fee. That means you or a loved one move into whatever level of care you need—for instance, assisted living or skilled nursing. 
For the Life Care program, you’ve got two costs to consider, and even more financial gains.  Let’s start with the upfront buy-in fee. The amount of the fee depends on your floor plan, services, and the Life Care contract you choose. The other cost is the monthly service fee, which is based on the type of accommodations and your level of care. 

With our Life Care option, you can make your assets last longer. And you get our care for life guarantee.* This unique benefit guarantees that even if your financial resources are eventually exhausted due to no fault of your own you’ll still have the care you need.*

Whether you choose a rental or Life Care option, our community has the lifestyle you want and the care you need.

*The Life Care guarantee is subject to the terms and conditions of the Residency Contract.

  • 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!
