How affordable is the rent at Genesis Village?
Our all-inclusive monthly rent depends on your personal choices—what type of apartment (1 or 2 bedrooms/baths or studio) and which one of our 22 floor plans is best suited to meet your needs, along with how many adults will be living in the apartment. Typical floor plans are located on the Apartment and Amenities tab.
What does the all-inclusive rent cover?
Our all-inclusive rent covers all utilities (except home phone), a continental breakfast and two Chef-prepared, home-cooked buffet meals which are provided daily. Enjoy the use of the indoor pool, whirlpool, locker room and fitness center. Residents will also enjoy the Fireside Café; a large 2,000 sq. ft. atrium; the library; scheduled groups, clubs, programs and activities; and 6 acres of outdoor space, which includes yard space, gardens and a wooded ravine. Residents will enjoy free access to on-site laundry rooms, a prayer room and chapel, along with basic computer assistance.
We want your new home to be as optimized for carefree retirement living as possible, which is why we offer month-to-month leases; you are not locked into a yearly commitment. If your lifestyle should happen to change, this option is very convenient. We also offer special rental terms for “snowbirds” or others who are away for a complete month or more during the year.
Is there a meal plan?
A meal plan is not needed, since 3 home cooked meals a day are included in your monthly rent. There is no need to purchase an additional meal plan like some places require. Our philosophy is, we want our Residents to look forward to every meal. Our Chefs prepare a continental breakfast to be enjoyed daily in the Fireside Café, or you may take it back to your apartment. For lunch and dinner, Residents will gather together in the dining room to enjoy the buffet. The daily buffets will feature many different healthy meal choices, along with a soup and salad bar. Residents are encouraged to invite their friends and family as guests to dine with them at any of the meals. Guest meals will be charged separately at a very reasonable price, and for Holidays there will be special menus to celebrate.
For very special family/friend gatherings, a private dining room is also available.
Is there 24-hour staff available?
Genesis Village staff are on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including holidays. The Front Desk is always staffed with either a Front Desk Coordinator or a Security Team member, and they can assist you with any needs or questions you may have.
Our maintenance team is available 24/7 for any apartment emergencies.
Will I be able to customize my apartment?
Yes, for a fee you may request non-structural changes to your residence, such as painting and window coverings. Cost and coordination of such additions would be requested and approved through the Business Manager. All work will be done by a member of the Genesis Village Maintenance Team. There could be a fee, depending on the change requested, to return the residence to its original condition should you elect to change apartments or leave the community. For any Residents with a Handicap that requires any changes to their apartment, please contact the Business Manager.
What else will be located on-site for us to use?
Our Wellness Center is independently operated, offering Residents and Staff the ability to stop in and ask medical questions and get basic services like blood pressure checks. Residents can contract for Home Health Care Services such as medication monitoring, therapy, skilled nursing, personal care, and home making through the on-site Agency, or they are free to contract with any outside agency.
Also located on-site will be an independently-operated Beauty Salon. Stop by or call for available appointment times and current prices. They offer haircuts for both women and men along with other services.
Are there activities to participate in at Genesis Village?
The Activity/Programming Department coordinates a wide variety of options to choose from—clubs, groups, activities and hobbies, including regularly-scheduled family and friends activities. Special outings will also be coordinated for our Residents.
Additionally we offer game tables and a Wii system, the fitness center, indoor pool, whirlpool, a library and a multimedia center, as well as the 6 acres of outdoor space which includes gardens, a yard and a wooded ravine with deer and birds.
Are there shopping and restaurants near Genesis Village?
We are conveniently located in Toledo, OH, near the corner of Heatherdowns Blvd. and S. Reynolds Rd. Besides the businesses and restaurants within walking distance, we are a short distance from Spring Meadows Shopping Center and the Shops at Fallen Timbers Mall in Maumee, OH.
Genesis Village offers free, scheduled trips for local shopping trips to the Westfield Mall area, Spring Meadows Shopping Center, Levis Commons and Fallen Timbers. We will make stops along the way for banks, pharmacies, grocery stores, etc. The activities calendar will post trip dates and times, which vary weekly, and sign-up is at the front desk.
If you wish to use public transportation, we are on the TARTA bus line, and Taxis can take you elsewhere.
Are Pets allowed?
Yes, we love pets and would never want to separate a loved one from his or her owner. We do require that all pets go through the screening committee, which assures us they will get along well in our building and provides us current information about vaccinations, etc. When you visit, ask to have a copy of our pet policy for more details. A separate pet charge per approved pet per month is charged.
Does Genesis Village have elevators?
Yes, the elevators in the Front Lobby access the tower apartments and second floor apartments at the front of the building. To access the second floor apartments in the East wing, we have an elevator lift.
How do I know if Independent Living is right for me?
Think about your current lifestyle and a typical day for you. If you go through the day without any additional help doing things like getting dressed, eating, taking care of your personal hygiene and medical needs, etc., then Genesis Village Independent Living is for you.
If you need some help with daily tasks like medication monitoring, housekeeping or laundry, then the answer is still yes! Our Enhanced Independent Living is an option for you: you will just need to enlist a spouse/relative/friend, or purchase services from a home health care agency to help you.
For those who need more daily help—help getting dressed, help eating, more than minor medical needs, or help getting around the building, then Genesis Village is probably not the right choice for you. Our Community Coordinator will be happy to speak with you about your specific needs, and if we are not an appropriate living arrangement, we can give you a list of other local options that may better suit you.
What types of transportation are included with my monthly rent?
Genesis Village will provide scheduled appointment transportation for Medical/Dental visits. Residents complete a transportation request form and turn it in at the front desk. At times it may be necessary for us to use private transportation for our Residents’ trips such as cab companies, Call-A-Ride, etc. There will also be scheduled shopping/errand days making stops for banks, post offices, malls and shops as necessary. There will be no charge for this service. Ask for complete details.
Are Guest Rooms available for my visiting family/friends? Can I spend the night to "get the feel" of living at Genesis Village?
Yes, we have furnished guest rooms available for a nominal fee, by reservation only. The guest rooms have everything you would need to make their/your stay comfortable. Please contact our Front Desk for more details.
