Legend at Silver Creek

At Legend at Silver Creek, we offer two types of senior living solutions: personal care and memory care. Residents enjoy services and support tailored to their individual preferences and interests. Here, residents can take advantage of amenities such as a movie theater, on-site salon and spa, a bustling bistro area, and plenty of beautiful outdoor spaces.

We purposefully designed Legend at Silver Creek to feel welcoming to residents and families. Every detail was made to enhance independence and encourage socialization with others. For example, thanks to natural, non-glare lighting, low-pile carpet, and intentional color selection, residents live in an environment that reduces fall risk while increasing confidence and independence.

Personal Care in Harrisburg, PA

Legend at Silver Creek offers exceptional personal care in Harrisburg, PA. We provide just the right amount of support to residents who want to live independently but could benefit from assistance with tasks such as dressing, bathing, or medication management. Residents can say goodbye to household responsibilities and hello to new friends, new opportunities, and a vibrant lifestyle. At the same time, families can enjoy peace of mind and more valuable time with parents and grandparents. We've reimagined traditional personal care to give residents every chance to make their own choices and decide what comes next.

Our lovely 2-story design features floor-to-ceiling windows, plenty of natural light, and amenities like a post office area, fitness center, bustling dining room, and bistro. You'll enjoy the many places to gather with neighbors or entertain guests, including our living room spaces, outdoor areas, or recreation rooms.

Of course, our exceptional and personalized care sets Legend at Silver Creek apart from other assisted living in Harrisburg, PA. Our expert caregivers and other team members are there to offer a friendly hand, give cueing or encouragement, or be there to respond in case of an emergency.

Legend at Silver Creek residents are also welcome to participate in dozens of monthly planned activities.

Memory Care at Legend

Legend at Silver Creek also offers specialized memory care services in a residence that we thoughtfully designed to support those living with Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia. Our memory care neighborhood provides person-centered interventions in a homelike setting, complete with familiar routines and plenty of ways for residents to stay as independent as possible.

Each of our team members is specially trained in best practices of dementia care, including the Best Friends Approach to Alzheimer's Care. Team members are encouraged to sing a favorite song while assisting residents with a personal care task or learn more about their history. These small details make a big difference, and we love getting to know each of the residents we serve.

What can I expect moving my loved one to Memory Care?

We’ll engage your loved one in meaningful activities that will lift their spirits, stimulate memories and provide a sense of value, connection and purpose. Activities are based on your loved one’s unique life experiences, and combined with therapeutic activities and exercises that preserve sensory skills, mobility and motor function.

Innovative therapies such as our award-winning Paro Seal program, which combines robotics and bio-feedback technologies to deliver the proven benefits of animal therapy, provide powerful experiences that will help keep your loved one engaged and fulfilled. Plus, they’ll be surrounded with ever-changing interactive vignettes designed to stir memories and interests.

At Legend® Memory Care, your loved one will also enjoy an atmosphere designed with all the familiar warmth and comfort of home.

Innovative Memory Care.

Legend Senior Living offers innovative therapies for 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 has a book containing their own 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.
