My husband was at Legend at Tulsa Hills, and it was a mistake. They mis-assessed him. The facility was manicured, it was beautiful, and I thought it was like a cruise ship and that my husband would love this place. They said he would be fine in assisted living and that he didn't need the Alzheimer's unit, so he moved into the ALF, and he stayed there 15 days. However, he was not getting care. He was just lost. I was getting there as soon as I could after work, because nobody was taking care of him. It was not good care at all. I'm satisfied now because I finally got to the CEO and they refunded my money, but people just ignored me. I was not pleased with it. What I like best about this place was how it looked. It was brand new, it was clean, and they had nice amenities. They also had an activities director, although they ignored my husband because they didn't think he was up to par. So if you don't need support, it is a great place to be.

Legend at Tulsa Hills was a lovely place. It was very nice and very attractive. The staff was cooperative. The apartments were average in size. The dining area was very nice. It was new, so everything looked good. It was upscale.

My mom is a resident at Legends. The first impression was very good but after she moved in last Aug. things didn't continue to work out so well. My sisters and I really had to stay on top of everything before the staff finally got a clue as to how to take care of our mom. Now that she's been there for 6 months things are finally going smoothly. The main issue we have right now is the food. Not exactly healthy eating. My mom's been in the hospital 3 times already for water retention. The nurse and staff are very good though and the activities director is super. I did find out that corporate dictates the menu which I think is rediculous. When the chef made Thanksgiving dinner it was fabulous.

The Legend is brand new and clean, and the people seem nice. The rooms are really thought out well -- the ones they’ve laid out. On the whole, it’s quite nice. The people who lived there were nice. They had a Christmas party that was quite nice, and we participated in that.

This is a beautiful place that offered several floor plan options for our loved one. It's bright, clean and offers very good food and kind caregivers. That being said, the negatives right now I feel are on the weekends there aren't really any higher level management/staff there and the care level goes down considerably. They are new and have had some growing pains and sometimes I feel they expect your loved one to be much more independent than is first presented by the lovely sales lady. This is not a bad place by any means, I believe there are some really good and caring staff but if you're thinking about moving your loved one here be sure to ask a lot of questions and ask about the additional costs for higher "levels of care" and what that really looks like. Our original costs that were presented to us went up considerably after the "evaluated" our family member. Legend is a nice place but you will need to be involved and stay on top of things, at least a first.

We had an apartment reserved for mother at Legend at Tulsa before her health took a turn for the worse. If her health was better, it would’ve been a very nice place for her. It’s a very nice, brand new facility. I was treated by the staff very warmly, and they’re very caring and were preparing for mom’s arrival there even though she didn’t make it. We had already put our deposit down there when we realized that and when the doctor said that my mom isn’t a candidate for assisted living anymore. They very graciously said notto worry because our deposit will be refunded, and it came very quickly. They had a lot more activities, interests and things, but mother never made it there for us to participate in those. There are nice sitting areas inside, movie rooms, and they had a nice landscaping. I’ve really enjoyed visiting there. They’re very homey, inviting, and very clean.

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.

Base Monthly Services
  • Laundry Services - personal and linen
  • Housekeeping
  • 24 hour-a-day specially trained staff
