Welcome to Garden Place Waterloo

Welcome to Garden Place Waterloo – a charming senior living community, set in a charming town just 20 minutes from St. Louis, Missouri. You can start your perfect day with a terrific breakfast (prepared FOR you, not by you!). Socialize with friends and plan your day.

Thinking about a day out? Perhaps a day trip to the History Museum or the beautifully restored Peterstown House, then enjoy lunch at JV's Restaurant or one of the many other friendly restaurants in historic downtown. (And be sure to mark your calendar for Fried Chicken Sunday at Gallagher’s – their family recipe chicken was voted #1 by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Riverfront Times!) Need to pick up a few things while you’re out? Walmart is just 3 miles from your door. And after your busy day, maybe a sip of relaxation at Schorr Lake Vineyards! It’s all here – convenience and fun in a peaceful country atmosphere with assisted living and retirement services.

If you prefer to spend the day at home, stretch your legs with some group exercise, or try your hand at a new craft. Maybe, after a delicious lunch, just relax with a game of cards followed by an afternoon nap. It’s so easy to relax, knowing you have no worries, because we are a truly all-inclusive community. There are absolutely no hidden fees or extras for assistance. 

Garden Place Waterloo has a total of 67 apartments in a variety of floor plans, so you can find the home that perfectly suits your needs. Maybe a patio? Maybe a bay window? And of course, always a full-size refrigerator, a microwave and lots of storage space.

We would love to meet you, show you around, and answer all of your questions about retirement and assisted living. Please contact us today to arrange a tour.

Independent Living at Garden Place Waterloo

Many independent seniors decide to join us at Garden Place because they want to enjoy the benefits of living in a social community. Take advantage of the opportunities this environment provides while staying independent of care as long as you like or are able.

If you need assistance, you have a support system and care team at the ready that already know you, your preferences, and your personality—and you know them!

Garden Place Waterloo is an ideal senior living facility.

Passion and Commitment

We believe in person-centered and elder-directed care. We warmly welcome you to experience our health and wellness programs, social events, book clubs, "how to" workshops and tailored exercise programs. Our team believes if you do the right thing, the right things happen. We are guided by goodness, loyalty, faith, and fun.

Assisted Living at Garden Place Waterloo

Assisted living is a more home-like alternative to a nursing home that was created in the 1980s. This type of community living provides a wide array of services designed to keep an elder as independent as possible, for as long as possible.

In most cases, assisted living helps seniors stay more active, social, and engaged in life than they otherwise would be living alone. Not to mention the added peace of mind with 24-hour staff, assistance with medications, and communication between healthcare providers.

Retreat to Garden Place – Short-term Care Stays

Let us care for you. Retreat to Garden Place is a short-term stay program designed to care for the family members that care for elders. Getting a short respite from caregiving often helps families refresh and de-stress or provide services for elders recovering from an injury.

Adult Day Club at Garden Place – Daytime Care

Adult Day Club is an innovative, non-residential program designed to encourage fun and camaraderie with other active seniors. Perhaps you have heard this called “adult day care,” but at Garden Place, we like to think of it as Adult Day Club – a group of active seniors that enjoy conversation, activities, outings, maybe a little exercise, and definitely a few laughs!

Everything we do—from our social activities to our amazing food—is designed to provide a warm and enriching experience. Contact us today for availability.

Adult Day Club at Garden Place Senior Living includes the following services and amenities:

  • 24-hour on-duty certified attendants
  • All meals and snacks
  • Scheduled transportation for group outings
  • Planned activities and social gatherings

Respite Stays at Garden Place Waterloo

Garden Place offers senior respite care where you or your family member will:

  • Enjoy access to personalized care services (including medication management and other assistance based on your needs)
  • Participate in our Life Enrichment Program
  • Receive delicious meals and snacks each day
  • Have a completely furnished room to stay
  • Be a welcome guest in our home-like environment
  • Have peace of mind with a 24-hour care team available if you need them

Another bonus? The chance to socialize, exercise, receive therapy services and be cared for in a safe and warm environment decreases the risk for premature nursing home placement.
