Exceptional Senior Living

New and interesting friends, no house upkeep to worry about, and a swimming pool in your backyard—you’ll wonder why you didn’t move sooner. At Brookdale Galleria, in the heart of Houston, Texas, you can trade chores for more time to do what you want. As a continuing care retirement community, or CCRC, you’ll have access to three levels of care on one campus: independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing and rehabilitation. So you can enjoy the lifestyle you want and the care you need even if your needs change.

Try out yoga one day, and join our community cabaret show the next day. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try a painting class. Now you can, in our arts and crafts studio. And when you’re choosing your new pet-friendly apartment home, you’ll have plenty of options with almost a dozen floor plans. Worry less about home maintenance and spend more time doing what you want, like enjoying a cocktail hour by the pool or a performance by the Houston Symphony.

Socialize With Friends
A great life lived well also needs to be full of great people, and you won’t have to look too hard to find them here. Our community has vibrant, energetic individuals just like you who are living their best life and always looking to expand their social circles. You can join the dinner club or maybe you want to meet up with friends in the bistro for happy hour before Shabbat services. At Brookdale Galleria, your next adventure starts here.

Explore New Passions
Do you want to learn to paint or try a new sport? Or maybe you want to spend more time with your grandkids. Well, now you can. You get to define this new chapter in your life and we’re here to help. Whether it’s focusing on fitness and wellness, volunteering for your favorite cause or planning a few more shopping trips, you deserve to enjoy a worry-free retirement filled with all the things you want to do.

Trade-In Home Maintenance
We’ve got home maintenance covered in your basic service rate. Say goodbye to cleaning gutters, sweeping walkways or mowing lawns. No more worrying about costly home repairs, or cleaning a big house. We’ll take care of that for you so you can spend more time with friends, explore downtown Houston, or even travel more. You choose. You’re not downsizing your home; you’re upsizing your possibilities. Plus, we’ll even watch the place for you while you’re gone.

Enjoy A Convenient Lifestyle
We’ve got the chores covered so you can do what you want to do. Laundry? Check. Housekeeping? We can help you with that too. This is worry-free retirement at its best with the amenities you want and deserve, plus even more. Only go to the grocery store if you want to. Otherwise, we’ve got meal planning and prep covered, too. You can also skip the drive to the gym and work out at our fitness center right here on campus.

Common Questions About Independent Living

Independent living communities are good for seniors who want to downsize their home or spend more time with people in their same season of life. Because these communities provide residents with a home-like environment, fun-filled activities, quality dining and an engaging social calendar, it’s a great place for those who want to stay active and healthy without the hassle of things like household chores.


Assisted living communities are designed for seniors who need a little extra help with activities like managing medication, bathing and dressing. Residents usually have their own apartment that they can decorate as they wish and have access to community amenities like dining programs, social activities and more.

You may be a good candidate if you want a place to live that requires little or no home maintenance and yard work, you want to socialize with your peers and broaden your social network, you want to enjoy activities and meals in the company of others, and you wouldn’t mind having someone else take care of housekeeping and the laundry for you.

One of the best parts of being in an independent living community is having access to a wide variety of activities, events and excursions. You can enjoy everything from physical fitness classes and educational workshops to Wii bowling tournaments and resident happy hours. Here at Brookdale, residents enjoy all kinds of exciting programs like our signature B-Fit exercise program, which encompasses the latest research and guidelines to give you a fun, stimulating and social exercise experience.

Independent living communities offer all kinds of fun classes, activities and outings. It’s a wonderful place to meet people who share your interests and passions. And whether or not you want to participate is your choice. Join the activities you want to enjoy or focus on your own hobbies. It’s up to you.

We offer a variety of room sizes and floor plans so you can choose the one that’s right for you. The styles vary between communities, but floor plan options include studio apartments and one, two or three-bedroom apartments. Each apartment includes a private bathroom, and some feature a kitchen or kitchenette. Couples can usually live in the same apartment, but it’s wise to check with the community first.

Some of our independent living communities have different guidelines, but you are often welcome to bring personal belongings and furnishings to make your new space feel more like home. We always encourage our residents to personalize their apartment so it feels comfortable, inviting and relaxing.

While independent living communities can vary from location to location, our Brookdale communities provide residents and their guests with delicious meals that are healthy and nutritionally balanced. Residents enjoy great food and service with menus developed by the Culinary Arts Institute of Brookdale.

You are not required to have a car to live at one of our communities. We provide scheduled transportation services so you can run errands and make your appointments without dealing with the hassle of driving and parking. However, if you still want to drive, many of our communities allow residents to have cars.

Pets are an important part of the family, which is why our communities are pet-friendly. Be sure to check with your individual community before you arrive in case there are weight or breed restrictions. Explore our Pets page for more information on pet-friendly living.
