Financial Options

As a life care community, Galleria Woods allows you to live a vibrant, active lifestyle now, knowing you’ll have the security and convenient access to higher levels of quality, on-campus care whenever you need it.


For an initial entrance payment and subsequent monthly fees, your living accommodations, services and amenities are customized to suit your personal lifestyle and changing needs, so you can reside in the appropriate level of care—whether it be assisted living, long-term care or short-term rehabilitation. A variety of financial programs allow you to preserve as much of your capital as you wish, which you may then pass on to your estate.


Many residents use a portion of the proceeds from the sales of their homes to fund their entrance payment. The IRS has ruled that portions of both your entrance payment and monthly fees are deductible on your federal income return as prepayment of medical expenses. You can learn more by consulting your tax advisor.

FAQs

What is an independent living community?
An independent living community is the perfect place for active seniors who are able to enjoy an active life and want the total freedom of a carefree retirement lifestyle. Home maintenance and yard work become a thing of the past, and the community provides a wide range of services and amenities—including dining, a full calendar of social opportunities and entertainment, transportation, cleaning, health and wellness activities, security, and more--so residents can truly live the lives they want to live.
What’s it like to move into a life plan community?
When you move into your residence at a life plan community, you’ll receive a variety of services such as dining, housekeeping, scheduled transportation, maintenance and security, and have access to a whole array of incredible amenities and social, wellness and educational activities. You’ll live independently and enjoy the lifestyle you create for yourself. But the unique benefit of a life care community is the access to a continuum of care right on the same campus if and when it’s needed. For instance, Galleria Woods provides a full range of care, including assisted living, short-term rehab, and long-term care. Transitioning among these levels of care is simple and seamless, and you’ll always have the peace of mind knowing that you’ll be receiving care surrounded by friends and staff who know you.
How much does it cost to live in a retirement community?

Costs can vary widely depending on the community and the services offered.


A life care community (like Galleria Woods) typically offers a residency agreement with a one-time entrance fee along with a monthly payment that covers the services provided. The entrance fee and monthly fee will vary depending on the size of the residence and the number of occupants. When needs change, care is provided on site from people you already know and trust. In addition to an entrance fee, a monthly fee covers community maintenance, dining programs, and access to all the services and amenities of the community. Refundability of your entrance fee will vary by community.
