Gold Leaf Dining
Lively conversations, rich aromas and exquisite flavors. At Legend®, dining is an experience that delights all the senses.
Legend’s holistic approach to dining is more than just delicious food. We place the highest priority on the nutrition and hydration that nourishes your body and mind. Nutritious, flavorful dishes served in an inviting, enjoyable atmosphere are important to enhancing wellness and adding wholeness to life.
Expertly planned by dieticians and prepared by our expert Gold Leaf Chefs, meals are an experience you’ll want to savor while catching up with friends and neighbors. Choose from a menu of delicious entrees or order something from our Café Menu in the comfort of the main dining room. Suppose you miss a mealtime or just have a craving, order from our Anytime Dining selections. Even submit your own special recipe. At Legend, you’ll gather around our table and enjoy great food and good company every time you dine with us.
More About Gold Leaf Dining
While all senior living residences offer meals served in a busy dining room, Legend Senior Living’s approach is more than just good food on a plate. We know the value of gathering for a meal, planning the day with friends over a cup of coffee and a stack of pancakes, or catching up with neighbors over an appetizer. At Legend Senior Living, dining is an event to look forward to.
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.
Join us to experience the difference! Contact a residence near you to schedule a visit and a meal. Bon appetit!
Here at Legend Senior Living, we are always searching for ways to meet the needs of the residents who call a Legend Senior Living residence home. Each resident is unique, so we have to get creative to meet their preferences. Our Companion Care Services are just one way we can give residents what they need in a personalized way.
What Are Companion Care Services?
Sometimes, you may need an extra hand or a friendly ear. Our Companion Services provide personal assistance with a wide range of tasks or simply the company of someone who cares to promote independence and free up time for family or caregivers.
Our Companion Care Services can include:
- Socialization and support
- Encouraging participation in activities
- Helping with correspondence
- Reading, visiting
- Sharing interests and talents
- Participating in hobbies and crafts
- Aiding in personal shopping
- Escorting for family dinners or social events
- Additional housekeeping
- Information source
- Additional assistance with personal care
- Range of motion exercises
- Assistance with walking and transfers
- Assistance with morning/nighttime routines
Our senior care companion services can also provide friendly visits for a few hours, offering residents the opportunity to receive one-on-one attention, a familiar face, and a listening ear.
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.
Learn More About Legend Senior Living
At Legend Senior Living, we understand that the best connections between residents and associates happen over a shared experience. Our Life Enrichment programs are designed to provide the opportunity for you to enjoy any event, program, trip, or another opportunity during your day - you make the call about what comes next.
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!
What to Expect From Legend’s Life Enrichment Programs
Whether you’d rather relax or fill your days with fun and rewarding activities, life at Legend® offers options perfectly suited to your unique style of living. You’ll feel your world grow every day as you meet neighbors and take advantage of opportunities to learn, grow and indulge your interests. Choose from a variety of fun and enriching activities planned by our dedicated Life Enrichment Directors, including:
- Group games
- Arts and crafts
- Musical entertainment
- Cultural events
- Group outings
- Educational sessions
In addition, chapel services, Bible studies, and transportation to local worship services also provide spiritual guidance and promote growth.
We’re constantly innovating to provide new programs, practices, and services to enrich your life and enhance your health and well-being every day.
You’ll find a vibrant and active event calendar in all Legend Senior Living residences, all tailored to the interests of the residents. While our activities for seniors in assisted living, independent living, and memory care vary a bit, it’s common to find events and programs like:
- Art workshops, like pottery making or photography
- Cooking demonstrations and tastings
- Trips to local shopping and dining destinations, museums, and nature preserves
- Walking clubs
- Fitness classes like yoga, tai chi, and group exercise
- Reminiscing and trivia
- Live concerts from local musicians
- Lectures about local history, health topics, and more
- Happy hour socials
Life is busy here but in the best way possible! We’d love to invite you to any residence near you to attend an event to see for yourself. Schedule your time today.
