What makes us different from the rest? While we could show our outstanding quality measures or quick response times for our residents. We feel it is best to let our residents and families tell you why they choose Legacy at Salina.
When Mom said she didn't want to live alone any longer ... she asked me to schedule some tours. We spent weeks visiting 7 area nursing homes. Legacy at Salina was the very last one and we were thrilled that it was where Mom would move. We observed a friendly place where residents and staff seemed to enjoy day-to-day interaction. It was clean, comfortable and they were eager to help us get settled and assist with Medicaid paperwork. During Mom's stay, we enjoyed the many special events, convenient transportation to outside appointments, delicious meals tailored to our needs, and a beauty shop!!! Transportation has always bent over backwards to accommodate. Staff is always very helpful and listens to any concerns and does whatever is needed to remedy the situation.Sandy Alexander “Troy’s Mom”
I have a family member in Legacy at Salina. While there are none that I have any complaints with, two that I would like to praise are Shawn on the day shift, who has always been more than helpful whenever I’ve asked him for anything, even in the kitchen and dining room. When I have asked for help at night I try to go to Markia. She is always more than willing to help and is friendly while doing so. There are others who are very good but these two stand out to me. August 25th will be 1 years since she passed away. I miss her desperately. Thanks for making her final months comfortable, worthwhile and being so kind to me as well. Take care of yourselves!Gwen
I truly appreciated their taking care of Mom's administrative work, getting her Medicaid approved, and keeping me in the loop about finances. All the Aids (Mom called them "her girls -- they tenderly cared for her and she felt they were like family). Mom looked forward to seeing the woman who does the laundry -- although language and Mom's hearing was a barrier - anytime they saw each other, they both shared huge extended smiles. Mary and others in the dining room .... food was important to Mom and I often would visit at meals, since she and I ate together constantly. It was something "normal" we could do together. The kitchen and dining room staff are amazing. Meals are really good! Nurses/meds etc -- Mom was a stinker about insulin and her high blood sugar, but even though she fought meds/treatments, she knew that you all were trying to make her comfortable and healthier. She appreciated each one of you. Activities -- Erin, you gave Mom many happy times .... as a genealogist, writer, avid reader, seamstress, homemaker .... your fun events were right up her alley. Even though Mom lost interest in her lifelong activities, she sure liked having fun with Erin!
