Don't Stop Here April 06, 2015

I am a friend or relative of resident

I have been looking for a retirement option for my parents and toured the Glenmary in March, 2015. Mom and Dad fell in love with the large 2 bedroom, 2 bath and have moved in. They are so happy! We toured with the Executive Director and everything he told us about The Glenmary has come true. The people living here are so kind and nice to new residents. My parents felt welcomed immediately. Mom loves the Line Dancing class and Dad goes on daily walks with the Men's Club. Dad told me over Easter that he feels like he is living on a cruise ship with so much to do! I try and eat lunch with them at least once a week and the food has always been wonderful. Its a beautiful community on the inside too! I am happy to know that my parents can "Age In Place" here while enjoying their senior years.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I'm in independent living. I live at the Glenmary here in Memphis and have been for two years. I was looking for other facilities because I didn't pick this facility. My family picked it. This facility is for independent and assisted living. There are eleven floors here. Three of the floors are assisted living, and the rest of the floors are independent living. All your meals are included in the rent. It is an excellent facility. It is fine, and I love it. It is gated and they have 24 hour security. The apartment is cleaned every week by the cleaning crew. They take you shopping three times a week, and they take you to plays. They have housekeeping, dining room staff, and home health care. Everything that I enjoy is in independent, and I love it.

I visited this facility

Glenmary was nice, but it was a high rise and I felt like she would be better in a one level. Their rooms were really nice as well as the dining room. They were very good.

They're nice at Glenmary. They do everything. They give medicine, wash clothes, clean the room, and take them to the doctor for free. The rooms were nice. He just got a studio, but he doesn't need that much space. They have larger ones if you want. The food is thought to be very good. They have whatever senior citizen activities, like bingo and they take them to park on outings. It was more diverse than other ones. They're economical, too.

From The Glenmary at Evergreen


Welcome to The Glenmary at Evergreen!

At The Glenmary, we are a diverse and special group of people who are dedicated to providing seniors with a lifestyle that meets their personal and social needs in an atmosphere of love and care. Our staff is highly trained in their areas of expertise to address the care needs and concerns of seniors. We have some of the most dedicated and talented individuals working here at The Glenmary!

The Glenmary is one of the few gated senior communities in the Memphis area. What makes us really special is our location in Midtown Memphis, which is in one of the most beautiful, historic and accessible areas of the city. Our team is committed to providing a safe and secure upscale living environment for seniors. This includes our 24-hour concierge services that are available to all residents.

We are fortunate to offer a variety of floor plans to meet your needs at The Glenmary. We have studio, 1-, 2- and 3- bedroom apartments available across the community. Each home includes stainless steel appliances and beautiful granite counter tops! We offer you a variety of sizes ranging from 574 square feet up to 1221 square feet!

The Glenmary is located in the Vollintine Evergreen National Historic District. We have our own private locked entry gate onto the Vollintine & Evergreen Greenline that is a 1.7 mile urban greenspace converted from an old railroad track. The Greenline provides a natural, serene space for members of the community and beyond to exercise, walk their dogs, observe wildlife, or even visit with fellow users of the Greenline. From “The Springs” to “The Arbors” to “The Gardens” to “The West End,” you can get to know the different sections contained of the Greenline, Midtown Memphis’ Urban Forest.

Award winning housekeeping services are provided at The Glenmary as part of the living experience in our community. Our housekeeping staff will come to your apartment every other week to clean bathrooms, dust, vacuum carpets and mop hard wood floor surfaces. Your service also includes sanitizing your kitchen and we will wash and dry your bed linens and towels. Some other highlights of our community include our Country Store just off our Grand Lobby where you may purchase snacks, drinks and personal care items and charge them to your apartment.

Our residents like to use our Grand Lobby for relaxing and socializing with our guests, staff and other residents and it is a busy area with family and friends stopping by. We have a beautiful Bistro and Library available to our residents just off the lobby. Here we offer complementary coffee and cappuccino all day while our residents relax, visit and enjoy our media area. Our residents also access the free Internet in the bistro using one of our computers. On any given day you can find a group of ladies playing Bridge or a group of men playing Poker in our Bistro! We have a beautiful Hair Salon that is one of the most popular places in our community. Our Beauticians provide a full service beauty shop for the ladies and barber services for men. All you have to do is stop by or call, make an appointment and our staff will be glad to take care of you!

All residents have their own mailboxes that will allow them to check their mail at any time in the convenience of our building instead of going outside. Each mailbox matches an apartment number and becomes part of the resident’s mailing address. If a resident needs to send mail, they simply bring it to the Concierge desk and we will make sure the Postman picks it up. If you have packages arriving via UPS or FedEx, our Concierge staff will sign for them and let you know that you have a package waiting for you downstairs.

If you don’t feel like cooking tonight in your apartment, you can always join us in the dining room. We serve 3 delicious meals a day, restaurant style, prepared by our Executive Chef and his staff. There is always a choice of entrees to choose from along with our daily specials. We also offer our residents the Midtown Room, which is a private dining room for special occasions with family and friends free of charge.

One of our unique features is our in-house movie theater for planned movie nights, arts appreciation and special sporting events. It’s not uncommon to find our theater packed for the Super Bowl, the Academy Awards and other special programs that appeal to our residents. The Parkway Club is another wonderful place in our community that has a dance floor and a stage where we host bands and live entertainment throughout the week. We also hold a regular Happy Hour each Friday afternoon where we serve snacks and an open bar. The residents look forward to this social hour every week! We also use this room for bingo parties, auctions, birthday parties…the list goes on and on… Residents also rent this room out for private events such as weddings, family parties, baby naming and special events. There are lots of activities to choose from when you live at the Glenmary!

Many of our residents enjoy our fully equipment fitness center that is available for our residents and their guests. This gym is also a great place for physical and occupational therapy needs when our residents return home from a rehabilitation stay. Our crafts room is where our Activities Director and staff gather with residents to do arts and crafts projects. Their works are displayed around our community and inside the resident’s home.

The Glenmary is one of the few senior communities that have an outdoor pool and cabana for their residents. This is a great place to being grandchildren, join a water aerobics class or just float awhile in the comfort of your very own backyard pool! Our Activities department will also use this area for our annual Beach Party and other social events using our cabana club house kitchen and grills.

The Glenmary has an Assisted Living community housed on two floors within our building. For those residents living in this part of our community, we provide medication management, meals, wellness checks and other support services to allow them to live as independently as possible. Our Assisted Living community is led by a nurse and we offer 24 hour nursing oversight for these residents. For the most part, our Assisted Living residents participate in all community activities but there are also some special things that take place dedicated to these residents. Our Activities team can be found in Assisted Living every day providing numerous activities in a smaller setting so that these residents can remain fully engaged and participate in our community.

At The Glenmary, we have a fleet of three buses that we use to escort our residents out into the community. Our transportation team can take you to the doctor or to shop at local establishments so there is no need to have a car while living at the Glenmary. Our buses run regular routes to the local malls, restaurants and community events. As you can tell, life at The Glenmary at Evergreen is fulfilling and provides a wide arrange of opportunities for every resident so that they can remain fully engaged and active!
