(April 3, 2017) – Legacy Senior Living, Cleveland-based management company operating senior living communities throughout the Southeast, today announced the upcoming construction of Legacy Village of Cleveland, a new assisted living and memory care facility to be located at 2255 Candies Lane.

About Legacy Village of Cleveland

Legacy Village of Cleveland will be a 58,000-square foot assisted living and memory care facility on the former site of the Rolling Hills Golf Course. The facility will offer 39 assisted living spacious suites and 32 memory care apartments in its dedicated memory care wing, The Harbor.

The assisted living wing will offer the choice of large studio, one and two-bedroom apartments. The memory care wing will offer studio, companion and one-bedroom suites.

Legacy Village of Cleveland will offer a chapel, library, exercise room, nice activities room, spacious lobby with a fireplace and beautiful views of the rolling hills. Outdoor spaces will include a gazebo, walking areas and event spaces, including an outdoor kitchen.

The Harbor is an innovative and nationally recognized memory care component that has been designed in many Legacy Senior Living facilities to utilize the colors and styles of a 1950’s theme. The Harbor was designed after years of research from notable experts to help take residents back to a happier time in their lives.

The color scheme is bright and uplifting with large six-foot windows in each apartment. Flooring types, textures and furnishings were chosen based on successful trends in memory care treatment. A large area called the Town Center is the hub of activities and socialization which include emotional, educational, physical and spiritual opportunities. Alongside the Town Center will be a Town Diner, Town Clinic and a Town Theater designed after the former Princess Theater in downtown Cleveland.

In addition to the unique interior elements, one of the key technologies in The Harbor will be the circadian rhythm lighting system. It will adjust levels of light throughout the facility during day and night to better improve sleep patterns, increase circadian entrainment and improve visibility.

Another unique feature offered at The Harbor will be the Simple-C Companion, which is the cutting edge, scientifically proven, non-drug therapy to promote memory retention. An interactive tablet will broadcast recorded messages of family members, show family photographs and play music specific to each individual. This technology is the result of years of study and development with top research institutions, including the Copper Ridge Institute, Emory University, Georgia Tech, Georgia State and the University of Maryland.

The Simple-C Companion will also be an integral part of A Purposeful Day Program at The Harbor. This specialized dementia therapy program is designed to offer engaging activities throughout the day. The components of the program are focused on both individual and group opportunities since research shows that both can effectively stimulate memory. The program will incorporate four types of specific therapy to engage our residents: Reminiscence Therapy, Trusted Voice Therapy, Time and Place Therapy and Music Therapy.
