Those caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s,

dementia or other types of

memory loss are no longer alone. Evergreen

Senior Living in Orland Park offers

The Legacy: Memory Support. Its team

of trained caregivers offers personalized

care and a unique approach to caring for

seniors with memory loss.

“My mother knew that there was something

going on with her short term memory,”

said one resident’s daughter. “It’s

hard to be a 24-hour caregiver. They [Evergreen

Senior Living team] have learned

to work with my mom and how to take

care of her. My relationship with her is

fabulous now.”

At Evergreen Senior Living, Legacy

Living means that the family is making

sure that their loved one is cared for in the

best way possible based on their needs.

When people choose Legacy Living,

those people’s promises to care for their

loved one is fulfilled.

“We have a great team of caregivers,

of nurses, of staff that really love our

residents,” said Evergreen Senior Living

Wellness Coordinator Pauline McGrath.

in the apartments so that residents have a

clear idea of how to enter and exit. Kitchen

and dining areas are built for smaller

groups to ensure less noise and interruptions,

and more individualized attention.
