Discover Senior Living in Colorado Springs

Nestled at the base of Pikes Peak, at the eastern edge of the southern Rocky Mountains, Legend of Colorado Springs offers residents the best assisted living and memory care services in the area. We love being a part of the bustling Colorado Springs community, in part because of the stunning mountain views seen throughout the residence. 

The residence is conveniently located near I-25, just 60 minutes south of Denver and less than 30 minutes from the Colorado Springs airport. Located next to the Focus on the Family campus, residents have easy access to premier healthcare services (UCHealth Memorial hospital is just 5 minutes away) as well as plenty of shopping at the Chapel Hills Mall or Promenade Shops at Briargate, dining, and entertainment points of interest just down the road. 

You’ll love the residence’s commitment to detail, as well as expert care, exceptional service, and focus on enhancing all dimensions of whole person wellness - spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical.

 

Our Approach to Assisted Living & Memory Care in Colorado Springs

At Legend of Colorado Springs, we offer two types of senior living solutions: assisted living and memory care.

At Legend of Colorado Springs, we have designed the entire residence to feel welcoming and encourage socialization and independence.

How Legend’s Assisted Living is Different From Other Senior Living Options

Legend Senior Living’s residences offer a variety of living options to best serve residents. Assisted living at Legend is all about the additional support you or your loved one might need to have more energy, feel more confident, and secure.

Associates are available around-the-clock and provide personalized support with activities of daily living, such as showering, incontinence management, dressing, grooming, mobility support, and transfer assistance. Caregivers are also there to assist with medication management and to be there to respond quickly in case of an emergency.

Our nursing team oversees resident care, creating personalized care plans that ensure each assisted living resident gets the services they need to remain as independent as possible.

 

Is Assisted Living Right for You or Your Loved One?

You or your loved one might be a good fit for assisted living if you can answer “yes” to any of the following questions:

- Has there been a fall in the past six months?

- Is the older adult lonely or isolated? Do they wish they had more friends nearby?

- Is meal planning and preparation a time and energy-consuming task?

- Has there been significant weight loss or gain over the past 12 months?

- Does the adult find their medication schedule overwhelming, unrealistic, or intimidating?

- Does the person live with chronic pain or a complex medical condition?

- Does the adult worry about what might happen if they have a fall or other emergency alone at home?

- Are home care services no longer providing the person with the assistance they need? Is home care simply too expensive?

 

At Legend assisted living, our services are designed to enhance independence, encourage new friendships, and give residents the support they need to live life to the fullest.

Innovative Memory Care

Legend Senior Living offers innovative therapies for senior Memory Care residents, including the use of PARO, an FDA-approved therapeutic robotic seal. PARO combines robotics and bio-feedback technologies to respond to human interaction much like a living animal would.

Research shows that petting and interacting with this biofeedback seal helps reduce stress and depression in people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, providing powerful experiences that soothe residents struggling with anxiety, agitation, wandering, loneliness, and even physical pain. Interaction with a PARO uses neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to adapt by forming new neural pathways, to allow the brain to reconnect old memories and build new ones.

Biofeedback therapy with PARO is only one of many innovative, science-based therapies used at Legend Senior Living, which continues to lead the way in neuroplasticity programming for Memory Care.

 

Hear a Story, Share a Lifetime.

At Legend Senior Living, we recognize the importance of a life well lived and the value of those experiences. Each resident in our memory care residences have a book containing their life story; capturing significant events, personal interests, and fond memories. While focusing on the complete wellness of residents in our care, associates and residents will periodically revisit their life story, deepening their shared connections. Our approach to care is based on 20 years of our extensive research, experience, and knowledge. You and your family can be sure to find specialized care, comfort, and reassurance in an environment that incorporates care and service with the warmth and comfort of home.

 

How much does Memory Care cost?

Because our services are personalized to fit each individual’s unique needs, Memory Care rates can vary. We encourage you to contact us for assistance in determining monthly costs based on your loved one’s unique situation.

To learn more about monthly rates in your area, find a Legend Senior Living residence, schedule an appointment and visit the residence. We can help you estimate costs and make an informed decision.

In addition, there are several funding solutions you may wish to consider. We encourage you to explore the options thoroughly and would be happy to assist you with that process if needed.

 

How Memory Care Living Is Different From Other Living Options

Memory care living is perhaps the most specialized living option at Legend Senior Living. Memory care residences are designed especially for adults living with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia. We have created our residence and our programming to meet the challenges that can come with cognitive decline.

What does this mean for you or your loved one? It means that associates work hard to create an environment that feels comfortable and secure so that you or your loved one feels comfortable and secure. It means associates learn best practices in dementia care and tailors our interventions to the preferences of your loved one so that we can help your loved one sleep better, socialize with new friends, and eat nutritious foods based on their own abilities. It also means we will adjust and adapt our interventions as your loved one’s condition evolves.

 

Is Memory Care a Good Fit for You or Your Loved One?

You or your loved one might be a good fit for memory care living if you can answer “yes” to any of the following questions:

- Is there a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia?

- Is there a history of confusion, including wandering out of the home?

- Are you worried about safety?

While someone living in the very early stage of dementia can manage safety and personal care tasks well, the need for support will increase as the disease progresses. Be sure you find a memory care residence sooner than later so that the senior can be involved with the process and so there is not an emergency situation.

Benefits of Activity Programs for Seniors

Fortunately, choosing senior living at a Legend Senior Living residence can decrease isolation and increase connection with new neighbors and friends.

 

We know that residents can benefit from consistent connections with neighbors because we see it daily in the residences. However, research has also demonstrated that senior enrichment programs and senior care activities have positive health outcomes, including:

- Decreased rates of depression and anxiety

- Reduced risk of heart disease

- Decreased risk of obesity

- Increased immune system response

- Decreased rate of cognitive decline 

A busy social calendar has many mental and physical health benefits!

Because at Legend, wellness extends far beyond the physical. It's a priority that nurtures the mind, body, and spirit equally and leads to a more fulfilling lifestyle.

 

Great Care Plus Attention to Holistic Wellness

At Legend Senior Living residences, associates, caregivers and nurses work hard to ensure we provide outstanding support, assistance, and care to residents who need it. And while we are exceedingly proud of that care, we are even more proud of the caregiving associates for paying attention to the overall wellness of everyone we serve.

Many health and wellness programs for seniors at other senior living residences aren't focused on residents' physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. At Legend Senior Living, caregivers and other associates get to know residents so that they can notice when something seems different. We want to catch problems before they become a medical crisis and ensure residents have access to the resources they need to feel their best all the time.
