A community designed exclusively for memory care residents
Our residents get exercise, fresh air, and can catch up with family in the great outdoors with a safe, scenic quarter of a mile walking path around the entire building.
Our residents talk, laugh, and bond in small intimate living-room areas and family-style dining rooms. We know that our residents do best in home-like settings with as much one-on-one attention and social interaction as possible. And that's what we provide.
Our residents enjoy natural light, large airy windows, and interior porches overlooking the courtyard.
Comfortable living space for memory care
Legacy Living is small in scale and organized into four different "cottages." Offering private suites for our residents.
Each cottage has its own living and dining room, kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry room.
Expansive outdoor walking paths surround the property and encourage freedom and independence while keeping residents safe and secure.
Like the dinner parties your family may have grown up around, our dining areas are designed to encourage conversation and new friendships.
See for yourself - join your loved one in a private dining room any time for a complimentary home-cooked meal. We believe that mealtimes should nourish the body and the soul.
This unique dining program was designed by experts in dementia care, culinary arts, and nutrition. The program offers simple choices, delicious, and familiar options. Our dining areas are small and seating is consistent, which boosts familiarity, conversation, and comfort.
