The Village at Gleannloch Farms is finding success in its local community and is finding it’s footing as Northwest Houston’s newest continuing care retirement community and is Houston’s only life care retirement community located within a master-planned development. Sponsored and owned by Lutheran Social Services of the South, The Village at Gleannloch Farms is a not-for-profit community offering 123 independent living apartments and cottages for active seniors aged 62 and above. In addition, the community offers a continuum of health care including 30 assisted living apartments, 18 memory support residences, and 35 private skilled nursing suites. The community is situated on 25 acres and is designed to resemble the property’s original architecture. Architect of the project, three architecture of Dallas, incorporated native Gleannloch Farms stone and wood overhangs, balconies, trellises and fences to promote a rustic exterior. The community’s interior, designed by Faulkner Design Group of Dallas, features arts-and-crafts-period influences using wood paneling, stained glass and wood-beamed ceilings. Developed by Greystone Communities, Inc., the new retirement community, which opened to its first residents last June, adds to the already extensive variety of residential housing options available in Gleannloch Farms. Other Gleannloch Farms amenities include a lakeside aquatic and athletic complex, equestrian center, championship golf course, hiking and biking trails, and highly acclaimed schools.
“One of the biggest selling points of a community like this has been to relieve the stress of adult children by moving parents closer to them and their grandchildren. The location is prime for nearby young families and an additional stress reliever is to know that all levels of health care are available at one location at a predictable cost,” said Ken Halbert, director of marketing of The Village at Gleannloch Farms.
