Administrator Tabitha Parker said that Dr. Brunda Revanna will remain as medical director.
The facility already had a van, but with the change came the purchase of a 14-passenger bus which takes residents on field trips and other outings. Parker said the van is available to take residents to doctors’ appointments or short trips such as Wal-Mart.
The facility has 27 assisted living rooms. The Harbor is the name of its 16 specialty care rooms, which includes residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Parker said the facility strives to care and serve the residents and their families with honor, respect and support. She said Legacy Village’s personnel stand behind its motto, we have the heart, you make it home.
“Legacy Village is committed to conducting every day business in a fashion that measures up to the lofty standards we have established for our organizational values,” said Parker. “Our mission is to serve the greatest generation with honor, respect, faith and integrity.”
Parker said she doesn’t consider her position a job.
“I feel like every time I come to work, I’m visiting my grandparents,” she said. “I’m glad that I have the opportunity to share with the residents and family members the care that they well deserve.”
Wendee Rannow, who was hired as activities director on Dec. 2, said she’s enjoying getting to know each resident.
“I’m enjoying getting to learn what they like to do on an individual basis,” said Rannow. “I have the best job in the world. These people are truly the greatest generation.”
Sharon Gaines is receptionist.
Three hot meals are served daily. The facility is located at 1116 James Hopkins Rd., S. W.
