Reviews of Legacy Senior Living Community | Independent Living
Family is delighted July 30, 2015
I am a friend or relative of resident
We reviewed facilities very carefully for our mother, including asking the RNs (friends of ours) who do nursing home quality assurance. They told us which facilities to avoid, and gave us the top 2 to look at. We chose Legacy after 3 family members were given separate tours and evaluated for themselves. Mom moved in this year. The facilities and staff have exceeded all of our expectations for courteousness, attentiveness, cleanliness, promptness, provisions for mom's few needs, with services available should she need them. She was very hesitant to live in an apartment, and did not want to have to mingle with a bunch of people she did not know. She was received by the residents there as family, and allowed to develop relationships at her own pace. She loves her indoor mailbox, 2 meals per day, the ice cream parlor with popcorn and cappuccino available, paying the rent monthly and letting Legacy pay all utilities, etc. Her apartment is so light and airy, and accommodated so much of her furniture from home that we do not consider it an apartment, but her home. She feels very safe there, and we are free to visit any time. They even have apartments for rent when family comes from out of town, and a large game room, a library, a fitness room, a hair salon. They post more activities and entertainment in a day than I can name. The neighborhood is full of wide sidewalks and a park, the streets are new and smooth. The maintenance folks respond immediately for any needs. The parking garage is in the basement. We could not be happier and mom is extremely pleased. They have a separate building with assisted living and a separate building for Memory problems if those needs must be addressed down the line. Although we take mom for her appointments, they accommodate readily for rides to/from appointments. They provide outings for all to various malls, grocery stores, theaters, etc. The units come in different square footages, different arrangements, different numbers of bedrooms, and are complete with everything needed. I have not found a single thing to complain about. We are so glad we chose Legacy for our mother! Even our generation is starting to move in for safety and security purposes and convenience of living overall as well. I would move in tomorrow if my husband didn't need his workshop - ha! Legacy in Iowa City is highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and all of the kind things you said about Legacy! We could not be more ecstatic to have your mom living with us.
