After taking over the facility in 2007, I renamed it Legacy to honor my parents. They arrived in America with very little, but through hard work and ingenuity realized their American Dream. As a young boy watching them struggle as new immigrants, fully committed to succeeding, I was inspired to not settle. When they passed the facility down to me, I naturally considered it their legacy.
As we continue to evolve, all of us who criss-cross these hallways, answer call bells, hang IVs, deliver lunch trays, or assist with rehab, are adding to the Legacy. It is no longer just my parent’s legacy, this is now our legacy too.
Legacy is defined as “money, memory or knowledge handed down through generations”. Our legacy will not be money or materials. For our residents and staff we hope to foster something far more valuable:
A feeling of well-being.
A feeling of being cared for.
A feeling of belonging.

-The family of Hanna Mae-
“We thank you so much for all the loving care you gave to Hannah Mae over the years – may God bless and watch over each and every one of you for all of your kindness to her.”
“I was a patient at Legacy for two months, but I feel ‘patient’ isn’t the most accurate description. I think the word ‘guest’ is more appropriate because that’s what I felt like. I can’t say enough about the entire staff there. The nurses, CNAs, physical therapists, dietary manager & staff, administrators & custodians were extremely friendly, cheerful, kind, caring, responsive, and knowledgeable. By the time I left, they were more like friends and family than Legacy employees. They truly care, work very hard, and do their best. I felt I was in good hands when I was there and I will be forever grateful for the excellent care I received.”
“Thank you for caring for my grandmother. During her last days, you have given her much love and warmth. Not only to my grandmother but to us you have shown kindness. I have no way to repay my appreciation, only a word of thanks and may God bless this nursing home and may it continue to offer love and refuge to those I need.”
