Reviews of Legacy Senior Living Community

I am a friend or relative of resident
Both of our parents lived in the independent building for a year and loved it. After mom passed away, dad continues to live there and be with the many friends they made together. The facility is very new and anything that needs repaired is attended to promptly. We have eaten several meals there, and the food is excellent. They can choose off a menu of they don't care for either of the selections offered. There are many activities to attend both onsite and off. The staff is very professional and know the residents by name. Housekeeping staff helps dad keep his place up. We feel very comfortable with all the services provided by Legacy!
Thank you so much for the kind words. We try to ensure that all of our residents love the way they live and while we are sorry to have lost your mother we are so happy that your father has made such wonderful friends and continues to enjoy himself here. Our residents truly set us apart here at Legacy. Again thank you for the wonderful review.

Visited this facility
I had a chance to visit and tour this facility and had mixed feelings about it. It had an impressive array of amenities including a salon, fitness room, nice dining area, and activity room among others. The staff seemed friendly enough and they seemed well liked by the residents from the interactions I saw. The main issue that I had with this facility was in the living units themselves. I was able to look at several different units (they have 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and different layouts which is why I viewed more then one)and saw several problems that I was not comfortable with. In one unit the front door would not close and latch properly and could not be locked. In another unit the kitchen was set up in an 'L' shape with the refidgerator on one side of the L and the oven on the other side. The oven door could not be opened all the way because it hit the refridgerator. And in the last unit that I looked at the kitchen floor was not level, it slanted and the flooring was bubbling up. Over all, I would not feel comfortable putting a loved one in this facility because of the issues in the units themselves. If this was something the facility could resolve then I would be more then willing to take another look and consider it an option.
