Mom is happy
The value for the money is great. The apartment sizes are super spacious, she has a 1 bedroom and we were surprised by the size. My mom really likes it here. The residents are all very friendly. I would recommend Gibson Gardens to others.

Service is Excellent
Moving to the Gibson Gardens has been an excellent experience for me. The staff is so kind and friendly, they always greet me and ask how I am. The location could not be more convenient for any store you need. There are so many amenities and activities. The food is delicious. In the evenings they have a chef, not a cook, that prepares gourmet meals reasonably priced. Continental breakfasts and meals you can order for lunch if you so desire. It is the best in exclusive independent living with the option later on for continuing care if it becomes necessary. I am really impressed with how clean the whole environment is. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful and I have a gorgeous view of the city lights at night and the lush greenery for the day. I have a large one bedroom apartment with two french doors, a fire place, full kitchen and a washer and dryer. The builder who designed this truly had seniors in mind with all of the comforts of home provided in one place. I would definitely recommend this community to friends and family.

Had nice visit with Cathy Martin, but feel level of activity and meal options were not what we were looking for. Clean and nice grounds. Would be nice for someone who wanted to be more independent and was not looking for socialization and liked to cook or eat out. Menu very limited.

The environment for older people here is excellent.
If you ask for something to be done they are right on it, within 24 hours or even sooner. There is no way to get bored, there are lots of activities. On your monthly menu for your food you can choose what days you want to eat, and cook the days you don't want what they offer. The environment for older people here is excellent. This is not a nursing home, they will take care of cleaning and things if you need it but if you don't need it you don't have to opt for or pay for the services. I would highly recommend them to everybody. They are hospital clean when you walk in.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Gibson Gardens

Gibson Gardens offers 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Gibson Gardens 9 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
