Located in Macungie, the second oldest borough and a suburb of Allentown, Legend of Allentown offers personal care and memory care services for residents of Lehigh Valley. Our approach to personal care and memory care is a breath of fresh air, making our residence one of Pennsylvania's most exceptional senior living communities.

Legend Senior Living in Allentown

At Legend Senior Living in Allentown, PA, we offer two types of senior living solutions: personal care and memory care. All Legend residents enjoy amenities, services, and programs tailored to their individual preferences and abilities. Residents love living the Legend lifestyle, taking advantage of amenities such as a private movie theater, salon and spa, fitness center, and onsite chapel.

 

We thoughtfully designed our residence at Legend Senior Living to feel welcoming to residents, their families, and their guests. We also created a community that naturally encourages socialization with neighbors and maximizes independence. For example, our gathering spaces throughout the residence are the perfect spots to catch up with a neighbor over a cup of coffee, chat about current events, or try your hand at a new card game with friends. In addition, thanks to natural, non-glare lighting, low-pile carpet, and intentional color selection, residents can enjoy an environment that decreases falls and increases independence.

 

Legend Offers Personal Care in Allentown, PA

Legend offers personal care services, which gives residents who want to live independently just the right amount of assistance that enhances wellness, gives them back the energy to pursue personal passions, and allows them to decide what comes next. 

 

With no steps to navigate, our beautiful and accessible one-story design features plenty of natural light, amenities like a bistro stocked with coffee, tea, and snacks, outdoor spaces, and places to gather with friends. You'll love showing off your home to family and other guests.

In addition to a beautiful setting, Legend of Allentown features personalized support and assistance for every resident. 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 at any time of day or night. We are there to assist with personal care tasks like dressing or showering and offer medication reminders.

 

Residents at Legend of Allentown also enjoy participating in any of our life enrichment events or excursions offered daily. You'll find residents learning local history at a presentation, working on creation during an art workshop, singing along to favorite tunes during a live performance, or taking a trip to get some shopping done. We plan daily events and programs to make life more fun, enhance wellness, and create connections with neighbors.

 

Memory Care at Legend of Allentown

Legend of Allentown doesn't just offer personal care services. Our team also provides specialized memory care services in a community thoughtfully designed to support those living with Alzheimer's or other types of dementia. Our memory care community offers person-centered interventions in a homelike setting, complete with familiar routines and plenty of ways for residents to stay as independent as possible.

 

Each team member is specially trained in best practices of dementia care, including the Best Friends Approach to Alzheimer's Care. It's common to see team members singing a favorite song while assisting a resident with a personal care task or pouring a cup of coffee for a resident just the way they like it. These small details make a big difference, and we love getting to know each resident we serve.

 

Of course, memory care residents at Legend of Allentown enjoy all the perks of maintenance-free living and Legend signature programs, including our innovative Gold Leaf Dining experiences. Family members and other guests are also encouraged to visit at any time.

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.

Our award-winning ParoSEAL program is working wonders with residents every day!Our trained and experienced staff get to know each resident, building trusted relationships that last.

 

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 communities 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.

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