No apartments have assisted living. My parents were placed in separate rooms on different halls when they needed minimal assistance (mainly medication management). We have moved them to another retirement facility where they have a nice apartment together and the assistance they need for half the cost. They lost $200,000 of the initial investment they made at Glenaire, which was described as an " insurance policy". It covered none of their costs, which were over $10,000 per month for food, lodging, and minimal assistance. Look around before investing.

Response: My father lost $115,000 to Glenaire. It too was called an "insurance policy". I wrote letters to the management since we were told his refund was being worked on. I got letters from their lawyer stating they thought my dad was happy at Glenaire. It was a threat. You lose complete control when you sign the papers at Glenaire.

Response: I am so disappointed at the reviews that I read for Glenaire in Cary.I worked there back in 2003 and 2004 when an injury was the cause of me getting let go. But at any rate the care and consideration that the residents got from Nurses Aids to the Director of Nurshing and everyone else that worked there was beyond reproach.There was no other place that I would recommend due to the residents being the top concern of anyone that worked there. The residents or their families were able to see the top guy there at any time , his door was always opened. I know that the people that I worked under are no longer there but I had no idea that it had gotten so bad. It is a shame. Once again that ugly thing called care only about the money has it's head at the top now ......

Response: Just wondering how they lost their investment. Was it a misunderstanding about the buy in plan???
