Legend Senior Living™ operates 40 residences across the United States, offering Independent Living, Assisted Living/Personal Care, Memory Care and Health Care residential options. The Legend™ family of residences includes many distinctive communities that are well-known in and around the communities they serve, and dedicated to fulfilling the company’s mission to enrich and change lives for the better.
Legend Senior Living® is honored to be recognized for excellence and innovation in senior living.
Legend Senior Living® is a family experience and a family business. Two generations of Buchanans lead the company and guide its future, balancing innovation and creativity with the wisdom of experience and longevity. Today, as a privately held family business, Legend™ lives by the same principles of servanthood, compassion and character, guided by faith, upon which it was founded.
Tim Buchanan, Legend’s founder, pioneered the Assisted Living concept across the nation nearly 30 years ago. His passion for creating more dignified residential living options in which seniors could receive health care services helped foster great change at a time when skilled nursing homes were the only option. He envisioned a company that truly values people. A company that nurtures a sense of family and friendship, serving people and changing lives for the better.
That vision of service and innovation continues today. Legend’s award-winning therapies and programming for residents are personalized and delivered discreetly so that individual choice, respect, and dignity always remain at the heart of the experience. We continue to create physical environments that make life more engaging, vibrant and social. Places where family and residents build community and enjoy life together. Family is important at Legend and remains an important priority in our approach to serving residents.
At Legend Senior Living®, our passion is for caring. At the heart of those care services lies our deep commitment to caring about you. Our caring lies deeper than the physical point of service, recognizing the dignity of who you are and the respect you deserve.
It is important that you enjoy enriching days and receive the quality of care you desire and need. The Legend® team has been innovating in health care therapies and delivery methods for nearly three decades. And we bring that experience and compassion to meeting the needs of residents every day. We recognize the need for high-quality care by maintaining a first-class standard of health and fulfillment.
Delivering that standard of care requires a deep understanding of each resident and their needs. We customize a plan specifically for you — and with you — delivered by expert health care associates on duty around the clock. Health and wellness evaluations are performed individually, recognizing your personal needs, goals and lifestyle choices.
Fitness activities and exercise classes are offered at each Legend residence. Take advantage of chair aerobics, walking clubs, and fitness classes for balance, arthritis, and more. These classes give residents many opportunities for physical activity that improves quality of life.
Residents engage in life together through a variety of fun and enriching opportunities. Choose from art sessions, group games, musical entertainment and more, all planned by our dedicated Life Enrichment Directors.
Educational sessions at each residence and in the local community provide opportunities for residents to connect to the world around them. Plus, with chapel services, Bible studies and transportation to local worship services, Legend works to provide quality spiritual and emotional guidance and promote personal growth.
We are constantly innovating so we can provide new programs, practices and services to enrich your life and enhance your health and well-being every day.
Behind the delivery of these services are our associates. Legend has built a culture of servanthood, caring, and integrity that supports our mission to change and enrich lives. Caregiving is a personal calling, and our associates share a nurturing spirit that will embrace you as family from the moment you arrive. They will support and encourage you to live life to the fullest, not simply because it’s their job, but because they truly want what is best for you.
Legend Senior Living® is dedicated to providing the highest standards of quality of service, environment and care to residents and their families while providing value and accountability to all our stakeholders. We work to serve the needs of the whole person: physical, mental, and spiritual. We are committed to providing a positive reinforcing work environment that recognizes the value of all staff and fosters individual growth and improvement.
We recognize that our success depends on our ability to live out our mission and keep our commitments.
Legend Senior Living applies fundamental values and principles to daily decisions and long-term strategy. Our Core Values form the foundation of our company character and culture. They establish the foundation and basis for our Philosophy of Care and guide team members in executing our Pillars of Practice, knowing that the quality of our work is measured in quality of services as well as the sense of well-being we provide.
These Core Values are the foundation for individual decisions made by team members:
Stewardship – manage money and resources with wisdom and integrity.
Servanthood – deference to my own needs and wants in order to meet the needs of others.
Caring – A commitment from the heart demonstrated through empathizing with and extending personal interest in the personal, individual needs, weaknesses, and feelings of those we serve.
Attitude – The positive manner and perspective used in approaching issues and decisions and situations. Demonstrating a positive attitude and approach in the workplace and particularly when addressing residents, families, and co-workers.
Teamwork – Deferring my personal wants to work as a team gives us the opportunity to utilize all the talents as a group and to realize the uniqueness of each one.
Creativity – A conscious effort and willingness to see things differently, to break out of habits and outdated thought to find new ways of thinking, doing, and being. Recognizing that improvement requires my flexibility and involves change from time to time.
Integrity – Working hard, keeping promises, sharing success. Above all, honesty. Showing respect, fairness, and consideration of others. Following the respective authoritative governing rule. Integrity does what is honest and right according to other shared values even when it is not convenient, easy, or even visible.
Individual development – Taking the initiative to improve oneself by broadening one’s knowledge and skills in order to bring the best possible to Legend™. This often involves changing the way I do things in order to benefit through the sharing and implementation of best practices.
Responsibility – The willingness to acknowledge responsibility to others, and the willingness to fully accept responsibility for one’s actions and the implication that may result.
Productivity – Maximizing my personal output without increased resources or compromising quality. A willingness to pursue new and more efficient methods of doing my work and helping the team. A willingness to be monitored and measured according to my peers.
Philosophy of Care
We believe in the inherent worth of people and strive to honor this through the delivery of quality care and environment.
At the foundation of our approach to service are fundamental concepts we believe are important to every senior and critical in our approach to creating proper environments and service delivery systems.
Quality – Provide quality health care services. Always seek “best practices.”
Dignity – Offer each resident dignity and respect.
Individuality – Promote the individuality of each resident.
Independence – Foster and support independence for each resident.
Choice – Offer individual choices in care and lifestyle.
Privacy – Support each resident’s right to privacy.
Family – Support the needs of family, involving family in care decisions.
Environment – Providing a supportive residential environment.
