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.

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.

When you visit a senior living residence, it’s important to take a look at the independent or assisted living food menu. Here at Legend, we offer a diverse menu so everyone can find something they love when ordering. You’ll find fresh, seasonal options and comfort foods that are just as good as mom used to make. Most importantly, residents always have a choice of what to enjoy next.

 

The Social Side of Dining

At Legend Senior Living, we pay close attention to the social well-being of the residents who reside here. After all, studies have demonstrated that feeling connected and supported by peers is an important indicator of physical and mental health. And while residents enjoy events and programs throughout the day, meals are a key time in the daily routine when connection is even easier.

 

You’ll find residents chatting and laughing around any Legend Senior Living dining room table. We also aim to make dining feel extra special by offering themed meals and live music before, during, or after a special meal.

 

In short, Legend dining rooms aren’t like other senior living food service companies. No, at Legend Senior Living, residents enjoy a true restaurant-style dining experience that will benefit all aspects of their overall health.

Offering More Than Traditional Senior Companion Services

At Legend, we don't offer services that simply meet expectations or are the senior living norm. Instead, we find ways to create more personalized services tailored to each resident's individual preferences.

Our Companion Services are designed to offer that friendly and consistent check-in when residents need it and prefer it most. It's common to find a Legend associate stopping by for a cup of coffee and morning task assistance for a resident who is a self-proclaimed "early bird" who likes to get their day started with purpose. You can also find associates picking up a shopping list from a resident who prefers to get their groceries on Wednesdays, and the associate will already know their favorite brands and snacks.

Personal touches mean everything, and our Companion Services meet your expectations.

At Legend Senior Living, we understand that the best connections between residents and associates happen over a shared experience.

Benefits of Activity Programs for Seniors

Older adults are at an increased risk of isolation and feelings of loneliness due to shrinking social circles, lack of transportation, and mobility challenges. 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!

Wellness isn't a program at Legend. It's at the core of everything we do.

Wellness

Wellness at Legend Senior Living® is more than just a program that encourages healthy living for seniors. Designed to enhance the overall health and well-being of the residents we serve, resident wellness at any Legend® residence is our daily focus.

 

 

Keeping you well is an important part of everything we do.Staying healthy, both mentally and physically, means you can enjoy life with those you love.

 

 

Our Approach to Wellness for Seniors

We care for the entire person - mind, spirit, and body. Socialization, physical activity, spiritual and emotional support, medication management, nutritional counseling, and assistance with activities of daily living are all addressed individually for each resident, and support is provided for their family.

We customize our services and meet each resident and their families at their point of need with care and service plans designed especially for their needs. Our Healthcare associates monitors each resident's progress daily and adjusts the plan and service delivery approach as needed. Resident and family communication and counseling meetings are conducted regularly to ensure that all are confident and secure in their knowledge of the individual care plan, while nurses act as a liaison with the resident's primary physician to coordinate medical care and integrate their instructions into the resident's tailored service plan.

Legend offers a variety of programs designed to enhance the well-being of the residents. Fitness and exercise programs offer chair aerobics, walking clubs, and fitness classes designed to enhance balance, ease arthritis pain, and more. Our Companion Services provide personal companionship and assistance with tasks, delivering caring support and a friendly ear when needed.

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.
