The Legacy at Highwoods Preserve  focuses is on the needs of each resident, so they feel valued, successful, peaceful, cared for, and loved. Our program accounts for the understanding that each resident is different. Our residents have different likes, dislikes, abilities, and goals. We have a complete program that reflects these differences which preserves the rights and dignity of each resident. 

Who We Serve

The Legacy at Highwoods Preserve caters to residents living with different types of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s,  and many others. We provide 24-hour care and have full-time nurses on staff. In addition, we cater to our residents’ abilities, focusing on what they are able to accomplish instead of what they can longer accomplish. This approach allows us to engage memory care residents while maintaining their dignity and allowing them to thrive and connect.

  • Each activity utilizes Parallel Programming allowing for residents with different needs, interests, and abilities to partake in activities that foster a feeling of success.
