“We get comments like this often during tours,” says Heather Bopp, a Family Advisor. “Once you visit, you’ll understand why.”


The Gallery at Spokane is the area’s newest senior living community and among the most luxurious. This living space stands out thanks to its unique design, the genuine kindness of the staff, and the endless personal touches.


The building itself could be worthy of a spread in Architectural Digest. Step into the lobby and be flooded with natural light. Look up at two stories of glass adorned with imported lighting fixtures. The structure itself forms a giant “X” shape with residential living spaces down the arms. In the center, you’ll find tastefully designed areas for group activities such as restaurants, a skylounge with patio, business offices, an exercise room, a salon, and a spa. In the courtyard, you’ll find areas for group activities and outdoor dining. Each floor has its own signature color and interior design akin to what you find in the world’s best hotels.


While you’ll feel transported by luxury, The Gallery is filled with local touches that keep residents rooted in Spokane. From vintage photos of the 1907-08 Gonzaga men’s basketball team in the exercise room to articles from the archives of The Spokesman-Review covering the walls of the mailroom, the effort to honor the history and stories of the area is clear. 


The Gallery feels like an all-inclusive luxury hotel but it’s so much more! This is, after all, a Senior Living community in which you can transition to Assisted Living and Memory Care should the need arise.


Of course, none of this would matter if it weren’t for the caring people working here. The staff is always willing to go the extra mile for residents and their families. They put their core values into action all day, every day, and every night. ‘We pledge to diligently serve our residents, their families and each other with care, compassion, and love. We pledge to empower our residents to seek fulfillment from life by inspiring hopes and dreams. We pledge to act responsibly, to be trustworthy, honest, and sincere. We pledge to help each other, every day, to smile, be happy and enjoy life!’


The expertise of all the staff makes a big difference. The Gallery hires people for Memory Care who have experience working with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, which makes them better suited to provide the best possible care. Their program has been designed to meet the residents’ unique companionship, mental stimulation, physical and spiritual fitness, and security needs. They come alongside both residents and their loved ones to provide the support and resources needed to thrive.


Amenities, services, and luxury apartment living are what you can expect from The Gallery. It offers 11 floorplans, with options for studio, one bedroom or two bedrooms.


“All of our living spaces have extra tall windows and high ceilings,” Heather said. “This really makes our apartments feel bigger and more home-like and comfortable.”


Residents enjoy three chef-prepared meals daily and all-day dining. They’ll find a washer and dryer in every apartment, and can choose to have a kitchenette or full kitchen. Weekly housekeeping and linen service help keep your apartment fresh.  The Gallery is also pet-friendly — they’ve thought of your entire family!


The Gallery is filled with wonderful engaging spaces for those seeking to live a full and active lifestyle. Everything you’ll need is readily available and just steps from a beautiful apartment. If you’re seeking a lifestyle that inspires and invigorates, you’ll find it at The Gallery.


With a “floating” license, residents are not required to move to different units in order to receive care and services — The Gallery permits what’s called transition in place (Memory Care excluded).


Some of the other amenities worth mentioning include scheduled transportation to outings and appointments; 24/7 on-site staff;  personal emergency alert system; special monthly events with friends and family; apartment and community maintenance; WiFi; basic cable; and utilities (except telephone). The Gallery also offers cultural and educational classes, outings and exciting excursions, fun-filled entertainment activities, seasonal celebrations, fitness classes and spiritual programs.


“You really just need to see it for yourself,” adds Heather. “Seeing is believing.”


The Gallery at Spokane anticipates welcoming its first residents in January 2024. Have questions? Get in touch with The Gallery today.
