Who is Legacy Living?

Alzheimer’s and Dementia are diseases that have made it an inconvenient task for the family afflicted to ask how to care for the elderly in their family and where to find facilities that can offer support. Legacy Living Memory Care set up shop in Arlington Texas and has served its local community for 17 years, specializing in creating lifestyles that come as close to a life at home with meals, housing and activity to keep loved ones and their memory loss in check.

About Us

Who is Legacy Living?

Our community has been here for more than 17 years and Legacy Living sticks to its mission: setting the standard of care for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia. We evolve with our residents and take care of what they need when they need it. Legacy Living takes care of your family as if they were our own.

Mission Statement

Enrich the lives of people affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia; create peace of mind for residents and their family members; use innovative solutions to deliver care with dignity, independence, and improved quality of life.



Why We’re Here

Patient care was different in the 1980s when people didn’t understand dementia. We were the first community in Arlington specifically serving the needs of people with Alzheimer’s and dementia. We know memory care—it’s our passion. We helped to inspire the future in how your loved ones are cared for nation-wide.

People with Alzheimer’s and dementia demands are treated as family. With respect, care, and understanding, we can help endure the heartbreaking effects of memory loss. After almost 2 decades of experience, we’re proud of the community we’ve created. We invite your family to be a part of it and support our focus on the best care possible for your loved one.
