Legacy Senior Services, LLC, announced today it will break ground on a beautiful 63-unit senior living community in Cumming, Ga., to be named Legacy Village at Vickery Creek.

The 50,000 square-foot craftsman-style designed facility will have an equestrian look, keeping with the theme and character of the surrounding community, and will be located on Post Road near the Vickery Creek Elementary School.

“We consider it an honor to serve America’s Greatest Generation, and Legacy Village at Vickery Creek will allow us to continue that mission in Cumming and Forsyth County,” said Barry Ray, President of Legacy Senior Services. “Cumming is a quaint, yet vibrant community, and we look forward to serving those special seniors and families with honor, respect, faith and integrity.”

Legacy Village at Vickery Creek will include 31 studio and one-bedroom assisted living suites and another 32 units dedicated to The Harbor, an innovative, nationally recognized memory care unit that will serve those with Alzheimer’s or other memory care disorders.

The Harborat Legacy Village memory care concept is the result of years of planning and development with notable experts and researchers in the field of memory loss. As a result of these efforts, the overall theme, design, colors, furniture, and common areas all reflect a 1950’s theme to remind residents of happier times. The apartment suites are configured especially for those with memory loss focusing on lines of sight, large windows and specific floor types.

One specific technology, found exclusively at The Harbor, is SimpleC, an electronic storyboard and drug free, memory stimulation and behavior management system that delivers Time, Place and Reminiscence Therapy through touch screen monitors in each apartment. SimpleC was developed through years of research by top-tiered research institutions, including the Copper Ridge Institute, Emory University, Georgia Tech and Georgia State. The state-of-the-art technology will play a huge part in the delivery of service, care and life enrichment.

Legacy Village at Vickery Creek will offer a host of activities and amenities to meet residents’ needs. Some of the amenities include: a library, a beauty/barber shop, large activity areas and meeting rooms, a chapel for religious services and Bible study, and a wonderful outdoor kitchen.
