Three Florida Windsor Assisted Living Communities Win “2020 Best of Senior Living” Awards on

January 17th, 2020 | Press Releases, one of the nation's largest senior living review sites, today officially released its list of 2020 Best of Senior Living Award recipients. Three Florida residences operated by Legend Senior Living® have been “Top-Rated” by their customers and visitors:

The Windsor of Ocala, Ocala, FL – Assisted Living and Memory Care

The Windsor at Ortega, Jacksonville, FL – Assisted Living and Memory Care

The Windsor of Bradenton, Bradenton, FL – Assisted Living

The Best of Senior Living 2020 Awards recognize senior living and home care providers who receive consistently high ratings and positive reviews from residents, families and visitors. This exclusive designation is awarded to fewer than 3 percent of providers nationwide.

”We’re very gratified by the extraordinary endorsement from the people who matter most,” said Gwen Thibault, Legend’s Vice President of Operations – Florida, on receiving the announcement. “Florida is, by far, the most popular state for retirees, giving seniors the greatest number of choices in senior living. When our residences rise to the top of that vast field, based purely on the reviews of the residents, their families and the impressions we make on visitors, it‘s one significant indication that we’re achieving our mission to serve."

Assisted Living and Memory Care at Legend residences such as the Windsor residences have evolved well past "great care," continued Thibault, offering advanced programs and therapies focused on social integration and increased mental and physical activity. “Our specially trained Legend Experts in Memory Care™ employ the latest developments in brain research. They can actually help enhance and improve cognitive and memory function through innovative techniques, activities and programs.”

“Residents and families know better than anyone else the difference among providers,” said Chris Mahen, Chief Operating Officer of Legend Senior Living. “At Windsor, as at all Legend communities, Assisted Living and Memory Care require a combination of specially designed architecture and amenities, a stimulating environment, good nutrition, extensive programming and – frankly – a tireless insistence on independence, dignity and quality of life for the residents. For that, we rely on our associates and staff."

Each of the three award-winning Windsor residences is also routinely certified as a Great Place to Work™ by its employees, explained COO Mahen. “We proudly display our Great Place to Work certifications to the public. You can judge the quality of a residence by the happiness of its associates and their relationships with the residents. Only caring professionals who love their careers in senior living can provide the level of service we require. And our residents notice."
