Assisted Living Reviews for Legend at Rivendell

I am a friend or relative of resident

My father spent his last 7 months of life at Legend at Rivendell. My mother and I are very happy with the care he received. The attitude and spirit of the staff were supportive towards my father and family, and I am indebted to them for how special they made dad feel his last few months. My mother and I visited him often, and the staff always offered dinner to us, or whatever we needed. It just so happens my father required extra care, care my mother and I could not have handled at home, and the "yellow shirts", as I called them (nurse's aides) did a fine job, and each of them developed a relationship with dad. The administrative staff, including director, assistant director, nurses, etc., were supportive and always took any concern we had seriously, and acted upon our reasonable requests at critical times. In the end, their staff was very sorry to see my dad pass, because they liked him very much. I hope my comments are helpful to anyone wishing to visit for your own loved one's care.

I visited this facility

We visited the Legend at Rivendell in the evening, around seven, and we didn't have the chance to interact with any of the residents. We only met with the person who gave us the tour, and she was friendly. We really liked the location and the facility because they were nice. The dining area was one of the more impressive parts of it. It was clean and made up to be more like a restaurant. They had tablecloths, and the dining facilities were also nice.

The Legend was very nice. The staff was friendly and accommodating. However, the price was very high and the rooms were very small.

My mom is now at Legend at Rivendell. The facility is extremely nice and they offer lots of activities. Her room is not that spacious but she doesn't really need a whole lot of room.

I can't say enough good things about the group of people that for our elders. My mom has dementia and the really understand the disease and don't make quick judgments about her because they know it's the disease. They have educated us as a family and helped us help out mom. I would have given 1000 stars if they were available!

I am/was a resident of this facility

The care he has received from Legend's has been unparalleled to any other center our father has been in. He is thriving and is more like himself than he has been since this disease began. It has meant the world to us since our family has had numerous unfortunate events during the past 18 months. In the beginning, he was unstable and many in the memory care facilities and medical community had basically written him off. He was unfairly labeled and was not given the care that he deserved. The Director at Legend at Rivendell found out what was really going on and address it so that he could improve and be more like his usual self. The Residence Director, Laura, was our earthly angel during a very dark and upsetting time in our family. Our family takes so much comfort in knowing he is being treated with the respect, courtesy and compassion that he deserves. This peace of mind is priceless for someone we care so deeply for. Dad is happier, has regained the dramatic weight loss he has experienced and is thriving in his new home. We are so thankful that he seems to be at peace and content with his new environment. The staff at Legends have been phenomenal. They have always been there to help us out, answer our questions and genuinely work with his medical team to ensure he is at his best. No other facility that he has been in has done that. We are extremely pleased with his progress, the staff, his medical team, his treatment plan and the care he has received since becoming part of the Legends Community. The social and family activities have been a wonderful opportunity for us to share in happy times with him. This disease is an extremely devastating one and like nothing we have ever experienced. The staff at Legend's is absolutely wonderful at having educational opportunities and talking with families to help cope during such difficult times. Thank each of you at Legends so much!

Legends at Rivendell is a beautiful facility incorporating features that provide for the comfort and safety of the residents. More importantly the staff creat a an atmosphere of family. They are friendly, caring, and cheerful in dealing with the residents. There are a multitude of activities available for any residents to participate. The food service is not only diverse in selection, but presented in a very pleasing dining atmosphere.My mother became a resident three weeks ago and loves being there. This gives me peace of mind and from my visits, I can see why she is enjoying her time there. She has expressed her satisfaction with the accomodations and the thoughtful and helpfulness of the staff.

I have spent a great amount of time at Legend at Rivendell, as I have some good friends there. I can tell you that this is the nicest community I've ever been in! The community is always clean, warm and inviting and the staff is exceptional. Not only is the staff very professional and caring, but the majority of them have been there for several years, as they have very little turnover. They really care about and love on the residents and families. The chef is really good and the residents enjoy great food and a menu with a variety of choices for the residents. I would recommend this assisted living over all the other ones in Oklahoma City---that's how terrific the staff and care is there. I've heard that most of the physicians and hospitals rank this community very high as well. K. Anne

I visited this facility

My mother, my best friend and companion whom I miss every day! However, her caregivers at the Legend at Rivdendell were remarkable. Not only were they caregivers, but were very special to me and my brother during my mother's declining illness. The staff was very responsive and the facility was well managed with a very warm and inviting living environment. Since my mother's passing over a year ago, I know that I can walk in the doors of the Legend at Rivendell at any time and be welcomed with open arms, for these people became my extended family and were there for my mother and me during a very critical time. To date, I continue to recommend the facility to friends in need of caregiving for their loved ones. In summary, yes, I recommend the Legend at Rivdendell and their staff with 5 stars!

Legends is a relatively new Assisted Living with both independent apartments and a skilled care section for those required more care. This is a spacious facility was is very nicely decorated, well kept and clean. It provided a beautiful sitting area with fireplace and library. It provided both inside activities and outside trips for shopping and visiting attractions such as the zoo. The dining area was equally nice with individual tables, clean table cloths and comfortable chairs. Residents could seat themselves and had a daily selection of food to choose from. The wait staff would come to my Mom let her pick her selection and bring her food to her which I thought was a very nice touch for the elderly. There was a sitting area in a garden like setting in the central part of the facility which was always well groomed and full of pleasant plants. The staff there was always curtious. My mothers room was always clean and neat including the dusting and keeping my Mothers plants watered. The care providers where very helpful with Mom. They assisted her with bathing and always provided her with her medications in a timely fashion. I was very pleased overall with Legends and would recommend it to those who can afford the facility. The only down side to Legends is that it is not the cheapest one in the area, but you do get what you pay for.

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
  • Three daily meals plus snacks
  • Tailored activities - therapeutic and recreational
