One of the many benefits of assisted living is the convenience of in-house medical care and the presence of staff members to assist with any needs or emergencies. Legacy Retirement provides medical services from on-site specialists as well as scheduled visits from outside health care professionals.
On-Site Medical Services
Legacy Retirement has a 24-hour presence of trained staff members to assist you or your loved one with any time-sensitive needs. The community provides assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs), as well as incontinence care for bladder- and bowel-related symptoms. We provide on-site hospice services and also respite care - the option for a short-term stay - perfect for recovery from a hospital visit, the interim during a caregiver’s extended vacation, or simply as an opportunity to experience a senior living trial period.
Several on-site therapy options are also offered, such as reminiscence therapy, which stimulates sight, sound, smell, and touch faculties to encourage memory recall. We also offer sensory-based programming (like Snoezelen therapy), creating relaxing and stimulating spaces for residents coping with anxiety or agitation.
Regular visits are made from a number of medical professionals - occupational therapists are available to aid residents in development, recovery, and maintenance of skills needed for daily living. We also receive visits from a dentist, optometrist, and podiatrist, to ensure residents are happy, healthy, and mobile.
