Senior living encompasses a range of living options for older adults, including:

Independent Living affords active seniors the benefits of living at home without the worry of home maintenance, housekeeping chores, laundry and cooking. Residents enjoy educational, cultural, spiritual, social and fitness opportunities through the community’s programming.

Assisted Living is best for seniors who need some help with certain everyday tasks such as getting dressed, bathing, and taking medications and may also have specific care plans to address fall risk, poor nutrition or other individualized needs.

Memory Care provides a specialized, safe and secure care environment for those living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other cognitive conditions.

Legend Gardens offers independent living, assisted living and memory care with services and amenities like full-service dining, full-service laundry & housekeeping, transportation, 24-hour staff, and a well-rounded schedule of social, educational and cultural opportunities.
