At Legacy at Mills River, independent living takes on a whole new meaning. Because not only can you live in your own home—you can own it.
Yet even as a homeowner here, you’ll have the support to make life run smoothly. We’ll handle the hassles—taking things like home maintenance and housekeeping off your to-do list. And with convenient health care located right here on campus, you’ll never have to worry about how you’ll get to that next appointment, or who will help you pick up your next prescription.
Have questions? We have answers and are here to help.
Legacy will have beautiful, private assisted living suites—each with the same Arts & Crafts elegance that you’ll find throughout the entire campus. Thoughtfully designed with comfort, care, and convenience in mind, they’ll be located on the second floor of our spectacular main building, with its relaxing patio, park-like open areas, and prime proximity to our physician-staffed Health Center.
Our Memory Care services at Legacy will offer a perfect blend of close attention and a genuine home environment. From long experience in North Carolina senior living communities, our founders know that Alzheimer’s and other dementia patients can achieve fulfilling lives, given the right environment. Our architect is a recognized expert in the design of Alzheimer’s residences. Our manager, David Ammons, has been a leader in the development of CCRCs, dealing personally with the full range of challenges that seniors face. This level of expertise can bring an extra measure of confidence to members of our community who need a little extra care.
Skilled nursing is an integral part of our offerings here at Legacy. We foster a person-centered environment, with emphasis on respect, privacy and a true understanding of each individual in our care. Between our state-of-the-art Health Center and our trained, caring staff available 24 hours a day, our community will be here to support our residents with the expert care they need—today and tomorrow.
