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.

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.

 

There's always something fun and interesting to do at Legend Senior Living.

Life Enrichment

 

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.

No matter what you love to do, you'll find many new friends who share your interests.Our residents enjoy a wide range of activities and interests.

 

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.

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.
