Review ofLegacy Pointe

My loved one has been there for three months and we have been pleased with the care they are receiving. We would highly recommend the community to others for their loved ones. The food is excellent, they have a lot of fish options, and good vegetables that aren't overdone. The menu is diverse. Some of the activities include card games, bingo, live entertainment, and more for the residents to choose from. The activities director is very engaged with the residents and trying to get them involved in the activities offered.

They're not quite as good as before Covid, but it's still a very friendly community. You'd better stay healthy or you won't be able to stay here. If you're on a special diet or anything ,forget about it. The staff was very good. It's just not great if your loved one gets sick and requires more care.

I would refer others to the community, if you can afford it. It can be pricey. I got a warm fuzzy feeling while I was there. This is because of the staff, decorations, and cooked meals on site. The activities are good here and they change them to assist the residents in being active. The only negative is they kept calling the primary doctor to increase medication to try to control my loved one's dementia. We ended up moving my loved one since the doctor wouldn't increase the medication anymore.
