Best Place in Colorado Springs

Not sure why people say such negative things. This is an amazing facility and they honestly care about your family member. I’ve seen other places in the area and this is above and beyond better than any of them. I know the emotions of having a family move into a place makes people have bad experiences, but when you accept the emotions of it all you realize just how much this place cares and works to help you....

About the facility Legend of Colorado Springs

Located just an hour south of dreamy Denver, Legend of Colorado Springs is an elegantly rustic mountain resort-style living community. The home is a stunning two-story with floor-to-ceiling windows and attractive modern decor. The home is surrounded by mountain vistas to be viewed from the lovely porches or even from inside the home’s cozy common areas.

Community members can choose from a variety of apartment layouts for both personal care and memory care living. The pet-friendly apartments feature spacious private bathrooms with walk-in showers, natural light, emergency call systems, and on the personal care side, convenient kitchenettes. In addition to dignified and professional personal care services, residents enjoy laundry, housekeeping, maintenance, transportation, and restaurant-style dining.

The home features a classy movie theater, a cozy cafe, and an elegant living room and dining room with high ceilings and large windows. Community members can enjoy a glass of iced tea in the front porch rocking chairs, or spend an afternoon with a nice long book or a jigsaw puzzle in the quiet library. Residents also enjoy access to the fitness center, and the spa with a  full-service salon, massage therapy, and whirlpool bath.

Review for Legend of Colorado Springs

They had smaller rooms, and I did not really care for the set-up of the rooms. It was more for, highly functioning elderly people, or those who were very independent. It was a very beautiful facility.

Tour of Legend

I toured Legend of Colorado Springs, and they were a little more narrow as they only had assisted living and memory care - but no independent living options. We chose another community because Legend had no garage availability or putting green - and that was not something we wanted to give up, if we didn't have to.

Terrible

Don’t be fooled by the shiny new building. If your loved requires memory care, and all that entails, you will regret a move to this facility. There are a few good caregivers, but they are only there for one shift. If you can’t be there to oversee care multiple times each day then you can’t count on things being done the way they are supposed to. And don’t count on administration or head nurse to do anything but make excuses. Worst mistake we ever made

Adequate services and care for most people but if there are special needs have them coordinated before admittance.

This community is expensive but a lot of the communities are. Depending on the needs of the resident you need to have some understanding with the staff and administration before admission. They have several activities at this community for the residents to do. My loved one was not able to participate in most of the activities but from looking at the schedule there was always something to do.

Feels like home

We walked in for a tour and immediately the place felt like home. Everything was clean, all the apartments we toured were clean and smelled nice. Residents and staff were so kind to us. The gentleman at the desk was very friendly and found us someone immediately to look at the rooms. If you are looking for a place for your loved one this is it!

Worst facility in Colorado Springs

I would suggest if you are looking into this facility, you should look very closely. They do not work with residents/family and do not follow through with everything they offer. The residents rooms are dirty, they “forget” about laundry and are so short staffed that they cannot provide the basic needs for their residents.

Look elsewhere!!!

Walk away. The service from legend is not worth the price tag. The staff turnover is ridiculous. They are on their 3rd or 4th person that directs their head of nursing. The management works more against you than with you. The employees are great, but are so overworked they are not able to do activities with the residents or to provide good care.

Absolutely the best choice of assisting living communities in Colorado Springs. Our mother greatly enjoyed her total experience at legend and valued her friends, and the staff to the fullest. She selected over a number of other facilities when she decided to move into an assisted living center and never once doubled her choice was the best one.
