Legend of McKinney, a Legend Senior Living residence™, is proud to announce that it is officially open after a 14-month build and residents began moving in September 1.
“We are so excited that our doors are now open,” said Debi Thomas, vice president of sales at Legend Senior Living. “I am so proud of the team here. The community is beautiful and the residents are excited to be moving into their new home.”
“What sets The Legend of McKinney apart from other senior living communities in McKinney is that it is part of a family-owned and operated company and every team member is passionate about the care they are providing seniors,” added Thomas.
Legend Senior Living associates are essential to the resident’s overall experience and providing the best quality of care. “Legend continues to educate and train our associates so they’re equipped to assist residents in their day-to-day needs,” she said. “We focus on helping them be healthy and happy, with well-designed nutrition, exercise, social and spiritual programs.”
The environment inside Legend of McKinney is purposefully designed to offer a variety of experiences centered around building community and supporting each person’s dignity and independence. Amenities include casual dining or coffee at the Bistro, full-length films in the Oscars Theater, fitness center, library, outdoor casual spaces, as well as crafts and activity rooms. The Harmony Day Spa offers a therapeutic and relaxing whirlpool and hair salon. With resident privacy in mind, Legend created a personal care suite where they can consult with its health care team in a comfortable private setting.
Legend encourages independence and dignity for all residents and assists them in maintaining their independence longer in a welcoming environment. “It’s essential that they can have a family relationship without having to rely on their loved ones for the care or assistance they need,” Thomas said. “We assist with care so the families can have a strong relationship and continue to make memories. And in the community, residents begin to socialize more because they’re surrounded by opportunities and peers, making new friends and memories in the later years of their lives.”
Conveniently located near historic downtown McKinney, Legend of McKinney is located at 220 S. Crutcher Crossing, just minutes from the beautiful Adriatica Village for fun and unique retail and restaurant choices. The Medical Center of McKinney and Baylor Hospital are just minutes away.
This two-story community features distinctive one- and two-bedroom apartments and is full of inviting social spaces and personalized touches, designed with residents in mind. Each apartment offers residents privacy and the ability to make it uniquely their own.
