Legendary Living, Integral Senior Living to partner on resort-style properties

Developer Legendary Living and Integral Senior Living (ISL) — one of the nation’s largest operators — have forged a strategic partnership and are embarking on a pipeline of resort-style projects.

“The relationship started out with a phone call,” Steve Griggs, EVP, director of real estate development for the Legendary Family of Companies, told Senior Housing News.

The first project for ISL and Legendary is a senior living campus in Montgomery, Alabama.

While a continuum-of-care campus is a well-established approach to senior living, Legendary Living Montgomery will be on a rental model and will not charge entrance fees or have a skilled nursing component, which are typical of traditional continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs).

Legendary Living, Integral Senior Living to build new Montgomery senior living campus

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Legendary Living and Integral Senior Living today unveiled a new strategic partnership to develop multiple best-in-class senior living projects, with the first being Legendary Living Montgomery, a resort-style, for-rent senior living campus located on Vaughn Road in East Montgomery.

Legendary Living Montgomery will be the second senior housing project for the Destin, Fla.-based developer. “Our mission is to provide for those who provided for us,” said Steve Griggs, EVP of Real Estate Development for Legendary. “We couldn’t have asked for better partners that are like-minded and have the desire, as we do, to create senior living environments that truly serve seniors and their families.”

Located off Vaughn Road in eastern Montgomery, the for-rent campus will offer 50 age-restricted cottages, 64 units for independent living and 73 units for assisted living, 24 of which will be dedicated to those with memory impairment. The community will be second to none in the Montgomery area in terms of luxury, security, safety and resort-caliber amenities, including cabanas and outdoor pool, multiple dining and bistro areas, art studio, library, internet cafe, auditorium and theater, game room, and chapel. Other outdoor amenities will feature an event lawn, fire pit, resident gardening area, water features, walking trails, putting green, bocce ball court, pickle ball court, yoga lawn, dog park and generously landscaped courtyards.

“Cementing our relationship with Legendary and bringing ISL’s culture to Montgomery and its terrific people was an extremely exciting opportunity for us,” said Collette Gray, Integral Senior Living’s president and CEO. “We’ll be offering a full slate of living options coupled with a stunning community to ensure our Montgomery residents truly are living their best lives.”

By partnering with the ISL family, Legendary Living Montgomery will offer its residents the full suite of industry-leading programs that ISL has crafted, including Elevate® dining, Vibrant Life® activities and Generations Memory Care.
Construction on Legendary Living Montgomery will begin this year. The community is anticipated to open its doors to Montgomery residents in late 2022.

Integral Senior Living featured in Senior Housing News’ look at the future of assisted living

Assisted living communities have been in lock-down mode since the Covid-19 pandemic struck the United States in mid-March — but this situation is slowly beginning to change.

Over the next weeks and months, assisted living buildings will adapt again in order to facilitate certain visitors and restart some activities. To regain a semblance of normalcy while still protecting the health and wellbeing of residents and staff, they must rely on creative and flexible operational approaches and new technologies.

Carlsbad, California-based Integral Senior Living (ISL) is examining “every policy and procedure and how we structured things before and changing to adapt to our new norm,” President and CEO Collette Gray told Senior Housing News.

Senior Housing News: The Assisted Living Community of the Future Takes Shape This Summer

Join us in standing up for seniors

To our Residents, Family Members, and Associates:

We recognize that these past several months have been trying. Social distancing has kept us apart from our loved ones as we all work together to flatten the curve and keep everyone healthy and safe. This has been especially difficult in senior living, where community is at the heart of everything we do – from shared meals, programs and activities, to simply being together with friends and loved ones in and around the community.

Our associates have always been the backbone of our community, and that is particularly true now, as direct care and support staff have risen to the occasion to care for our loved ones while meeting an ever-expanding list of obligations at home. But providing exceptional care has been an ongoing challenge as we face shortages of protective equipment and a lack of testing, and we all know how critically important these are to stop the spread of the virus.

That’s why we are asking everyone – residents, family and associates – to join us in a collective effort to send 500,000 letters to Congress sharing how senior living communities are coping with the virus and urging lawmakers to prioritize our communities for protective equipment and tests, and the resources we need to continue providing exceptional care. It’s critical that they hear the personal needs of our communities as they consider additional efforts to combat the virus, get things back to normal and make this feel like home again.

Writing to Congress takes less than a minute. Just click on the appropriate link below and you’ll find a pre-written letter that you can add to with a personal note on how your daily life has changed as a result of the virus. Then all you need to do is enter your contact information and click “send message.” Your message will be sent directly to your member of Congress and both of your senators.

On behalf of all of us at Integral Senior Living, I want to thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we work together during this difficult time.

Modesto assisted living home surprises seniors with parade

Family and staff at the Stratford at Beyer Park assisted living home presented its residents stuck inside due to the coronavirus with a parade.

MODESTO, Calif. — For weeks, seniors living in The Stratford at Beyer Park assisted living home in Modesto have been cooped up inside, sheltering in place while the coronavirus continues to spread.

For the most part, residents haven’t been allowed to leave and visitors have been restricted. But on Tuesday morning, the staff found a creative way to keep folks connected to their loved ones.

“With everything that’s going on, it meant that people cared,” Patsy Ferguson, a resident at The Stratford at Beyer Park, said.

Like so many others, Ferguson misses her daughter, who, on occasion, has dropped off supplies at the front door and waved through the window since she isn’t allowed inside.

“It’s hard, I only have one daughter close,” Ferguson said. “She doesn’t come down every week, but I really have missed her so it’s hard.”

Complete with signs, stuffed animals and honking cars, the staff at this assisted living home invited family members of the nearly 100 residents to participate in a parade, surrounding the entire facility so most residents could watch from the comfort of their apartments.

“We’re trying to do as many fun things to keep them happy, engaged, still living a vibrant life but also in a very safe environment,” Jeffery Smith, a spokesman for Integral Senior Living, which owns this facility in Modesto, said.

A gesture Smith hoped would touch as many people as they could, including his own 80-year-old mother, which he has been separated from, too.

“I think the one thing that we’re missing right now in this environment is that personal touch, literally, hand to hand, personal contact and I think this is something that’s going to get us as close to that as possible,” Smith said.

So when the parade came to cheer Ferguson and her friends up, let’s just say, she found the opposite of loneliness.

“It felt good, it really felt good,” Ferguson said.
