My Dad was there for such a short time we did not get very acquainted with the staff. Those we did interact with were very friendly and helpful.

Based off of the experience so far, I would recommend The Legacy of Lexington. But, I would tell others that you should always check on them and make sure they are getting the care they are paying for.

Very good place
When our daughter and her husband moved to Columbia, we decided to move too. The 24 hour care facility my wife was in previously was good, but in warmth it couldn't compare to the Legacy of Lexington. Legacy is big enough to have all the services, more than she would ever use, and we realized the social interaction with the other residents was good for her. What was outstanding about Legacy was the caregivers actually loved my wife and she loved them too. My wife was happy at the Legacy of Lexington.

Warm Staff and Facility
It's a small, warm assisted living facility. There probably are some places that are superior, but they'll be much larger and more expensive. Every time I go to see my loved one, her apartment looks squared away, and she herself looks like she has been well cared for. I would like to see housekeeping of the induvial apartments be better. Things are neat, but not necessarily the cleanest.

Terry, thanks for visiting us and sharing the feedback on your tour. We were glad to read you found the community sparkling and your guide was informative. People find that our warmth and hospitality make us special, so we would like to encourage you and your loved one to come back and spend some more time with us getting to know our residents, or even better consider a short-term "staycation."

Very disappointed with current management
The food looks nothing like the gourmet meal pictured above. There are rarely fresh fruit and vegetables. Canned vegetables and fruit cocktail are common Sometimes the chicken was so over-cooked and tough, it couldn't be cut, much less eaten. Recently the entire night staff was let go for incompetence. They seem to have a problem keeping staff in general. The staff passing out medications cannot even identify the various pills they are giving out. Staff answering a ring for assistance more than once opened the door and snarled "What do you want now?" They recently got a new head nurse who stormed unannounced into residents' rooms and confiscated anything that said "keep out of reach of children" by throwing dishwashing soap, hand lotion, cleaning supplies, hair spray, etc. into garbage bags. Needless to say, my family member felt like a robbery had taken place. Even worse, the doctor had written orders on file allowing self-administration of over-the-counter drugs and possession of cleaning supplies. The possessions were returned, but the emotional damage was done. Fitted sheets are returned wadded up instead of properly folded. Everything else comes back a wrinkled mess.

So far it's pretty good, except for the food...
So far it's been okay. They are very clean and very friendly. They lost their cook and the meals are really bad. When she walked in it was everything she wanted it to be. They are pet friendly and really worked with her to keep her dog. We liked that it was a pretty spacious apartment, and a lot of the ones we saw were kind of small, and sterile.

Not enough "active" activities
it was clean and the girl who showed us around was friendly enough, it was smaller and they didn't really have much in the way of activities. They mostly just take people for rides is what I understand and most of the residents we saw were in robes with walkers and sitting around watching tv. She's pretty active, she likes getting up and getting dressed and going out to do things so I didn't think there were enough activities for her.

A Place for Mom has scored The Legacy of Lexington 8.4 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
