About Legacy Retirement Community

At Legacy Retirement Home, you’ll find the perfect combination of comfort, care, and active lifestyle. Our beautifully remodeled community is located on the east edge of Iowa City.

Independent living provides seniors the chance to live the independent life they want, free to move about and enjoy every single day without having to worry about everyday maintenance, housekeeping, or security.

If you choose our independent living option, we’ll help you stay healthy by providing a variety of dining options; giving you the ability to run errands and visit your favorite places with transportation services; and keeping your mind and body active through daily activities provided to the entire community. Because this option is designed for independent seniors, it does not include some of the more extensive offerings assisted living does. We have created partnerships our independent living residents can choose to take advantage of if they need a little extra help.

Assisted living is a senior living option that provides individuals with the ability to live their lives the way they want, with trained support always nearby. At Dial Senior Living, the services we offer can range from helping remind residents to take medications daily to offering assistance with the activities of daily life, such as bathing and getting dressed.

What separates our assisted living communities from other options starts with our environment. Seniors in need of assistance have the help they need when they need it. Better yet, our apartment floor plans include large, private bathrooms and spacious kitchenette areas to allow anyone to move freely and independently when they want. Our assisted living communities are thoughtfully designed to provide incredible comfort, high-quality services, and beautiful surroundings. We can assure you that you’ll enjoy a lifestyle that recognizes your individuality, privacy, choice, and dignity every single day.

We’ll help take away the stress you feel in wondering if your loved ones are safe when living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other memory impairments. Our memory care communities provide the safe, comfortable, and engaging spaces needed to truly enjoy life’s many moments of joy. We accomplish this through specially designed programming that our incredible team members lead each day. These activities include playing games, listening to residents’ favorite music, doing crafts, and other offerings that help individuals living with memory care needs. We offer a full day of purposeful and meaningful engagement opportunities to ensure personal connections are celebrated.

Memory care caters specifically to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other types of memory impairments. Your loved ones can live freely on their own, with the help of trained caregivers to keep each resident safe and comfortable every day. The memory care communities available at Dial provide 24-hour supervised care that offers incredible activities designed to keep them engaged. Living in a memory care community provides your loved ones with an incredible variety of amenities, including 24-hour assistance, television and Internet, a full calendar of activities, entertainment, and individual programs, housekeeping and laundry services, fine dining, personal care plans, and private bathrooms.

We are proud to feature the I’M STILL HERE® approach in our memory care program. Through engagement, the I’m Still Here™ approach has been shown to reduce the common symptoms associated with dementia such as anxiety, agitation, aggression, and apathy—the 4 A’s ™—while significantly improving quality of life.

The designation as an I’m Still Here® Center of Excellence is only awarded to a few organizations each year. To achieve this certification, each organization must make a commitment to participate in a rigorous training and implementation program developed by the Hearthstone Institute.

As part of this program, all the staff working in our memory care units, as well as many others throughout our community, took part in a six-month onsite program, which included extensive training in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, communication techniques, and life enrichment. This training has created a team of true Dementia Specialists here at Dial, as well as a Dementia Friendly culture throughout our organization.
