We looked at Gibson Gardens. Their information said they have on-site caregivers, but they don't. It's just like individual apartments that the seniors are living in, although it's a beautiful place. The apartments are clean, the people are friendly, and the grounds are nicely maintained. They have services, like taking the residents to the grocery store. You have the option to pay extra per month so you can go and eat in their dining room.

I really liked Gibson Gardens. The rooms were large. I met a lot of friendly people who took me to the room where they do a lot of crafts, the garden, and the dining room, where they made recommendations on how many meals you could get. They have a kitchenette which was nice. The staff was very nice and explained everything; however, I couldn't afford it.

Gibson Gardens was amazing. They had elevators, ramps throughout the whole complex, so no stairs to climb, and pets were welcome. They had a dining room where you could eat or they would deliver a meal for a small fee. It was really quite nice. The apartments were nice, bright, cheerful, quiet, comfortable, large but just right for one or two people.

I thought Gibson Gardens was very clean, orderly, and the people we made contact with were very pleasant and helpful. They showed us a furnished room, another they were prepping, and another which was completed. We looked at 1- and 2-bedrooms. We also saw the covered parking, dining room, and some gathering areas.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

I was very happy with Acadia in every respect, I really liked everybody there. The people were very kind and the place was well-maintained. The chef quit, so my sister was complaining about the food at one point. The transportation was reliable for her doctors' appointments. She even noticed that sometimes the doctors took a while, but the person who was with her sat there patiently. She could not see and could barely walk, but everything was fine until she got cancer. She had a lot of needs in the end, but they all got handled. They did a nice job of cleaning her room once a week, giving her her medications, injections, vitamins, and things. Everything was good.

I Visited This Community

From the outside this luxury retirement community looks like any other apartment complex in the area—nothing about it says "retirement." This makes this community ideal for active seniors. The community is gated, providing residents with a bit of extra peace of mind. Apartments are large, and feature electric fireplaces, a patio or balcony—and in-unit washers and dryers. Residents can grow vegetables in raised beds. While there is no hands-on care available, there are group outings, continental breakfast, on-site maintenance, and a 24 hour emergency call system. This is a pricy community, but safe and comfortable.

Description of Gibson Gardens

As a comfortable and independent community for active adults, Gibson Gardens provides spacious accommodations and wonderful amenities to retirees in the greater Tacoma area. We encourage seniors age 55 and older to enjoy an independent lifestyle, choosing the amenities and services they want, when they want them.

Located on the site of the former Gibson Nursery, Gibson Gardens was started by the Gibson family in an effort to give back to the community who had made their father's flower business so successful for six decades. Fresh bouquets are still delivered to our community each morning to honor the home that flowers built.

Featured Amenities

We pride ourselves on setting a new standard for affordable senior living. Our extra-large apartment homes are available in one- and two-bedroom floor plans, all of which feature fireplaces, full-size laundry machines, ample closet space, a covered patio and a fully equipped kitchen.

Residents of our community enjoy access to our on-site exercise and activities rooms, lounges, a theater and beautifully landscaped surroundings complete with raised flower and vegetable gardens. Our gated community also provides a delicious continental breakfast on weekdays.

Available Services

At Gibson Gardens, we believe that retirement is a time to enjoy friends, family and fun - not worry about maintaining a home. This is why we offer additional dining, grounds maintenance and housekeeping services. We also provide transportation around town on our community bus as well as carports for residents who prefer to use their own cars.

To keep our residents active and engaged, we schedule a wide variety of fun social programs and activities. For added convenience, we are also able to provide on-site beauty salon and barber services to keep seniors looking their best.

At Gibson Gardens, we are much more than just a home and we invite you to become a part of our family.
