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. Cozy common areas, beautiful outdoor spaces and fun activity areas provide opportunities for companionship, while well-appointed suites and secluded quiet rooms satisfy the need for privacy and personal space.


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.
