June 26th, 2023 | Press Releases

Legend Senior Living announced today that it will change the name of Lionwood Independent Living to Acclaim Independent Living. Legend Senior Living, a family-owned senior living provider headquartered in Wichita, KS, manages the residence and owns and operates nearly 50 other Legend and Windsor residences in six states. Acclaim, at 12525 N. Pennsylvania Ave., is one of ten Legend residences in Oklahoma.

"'Acclaim' better captures the feeling of vibrant Independent Living that Legend is known for," said Paul Hansen, Legend's Vice President of Marketing, explaining the name change. "The focus at Acclaim is Legend's trademark independent lifestyle with emphasis on social interaction, wellness, and providing a stress-free, carefree life to allow more time to explore new interests, enjoy family, and live a vibrant life Oklahoma's seniors are looking for." 

As with other Legend Independent Living residences, Acclaim is a pets-welcome residence featuring beautiful amenities and services for a total neighborhood experience, including chef-prepared meals, freedom from home maintenance, and weekly housekeeping. Residents enjoy on-site common areas and lounges, lush landscaping in courtyards and gardens, game rooms, a beauty salon, and a library.

"Acclaim is near restaurants, shopping, and other attractions important to an active lifestyle," said Hansen. "Residents 'acclaim' the Legend concept of fun, friends, and life at its fullest. The new name is the natural fit."
