I visited this facility

I had a walk through at Legend. It was extremely nice and extremely modern, but for its price, we didn't pursue it. The rooms were very large. The facility was 4 years old. So, obviously, it was extremely modern and very clean. Their dining area approached was restaurant style. You would order from a menu.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Staff is very friendly and interactive with the residents. Low ratio of residents to staff. Residents can have skilled or additional services come in, and when the time comes for memory care, they have a beautiful wing for that.

Reflections Alzheimer's and Memory Care

Dedication to Service

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or other memory impairments is a very personal, loving dedication to service. It requires service for specific and individual needs.

More often, the resident with memory loss needs assistance with life's daily activities including personal care but may not have an acute medical condition requiring around the clock skilled nursing or instruction. Finding that unique combination of physical setting and specialized care is a journey traveled by many families.

The Reflections Program

At Reflections, our trained staff works closely with family members and friends to assemble a "Life History" identifying the personal experiences of each resident's life.

Through the "Life History," we get to know the personality behind the person, fostering a one-to-one association more like "friend to friend" rather than "staff to patient." Details and events from your loved one's past become "shared" memories and experiences serving as a foundation for activities, communication, and the development of friendships built on support, understanding and mutual respect.

  • Housekeeping
  • 24 hour-a-day specially trained staff
  • Three daily meals plus snacks
