Small, Close-Knit Communityreviewed on: 10/04/2013 by Cheryl
I think they're all one bedrooms and it was too big. That one, they had a wall with pictures with famous people on the walls. We didn't do an official tour there. We just wanted a studio and their one bedrooms were too big for my aunt. It looked like it was a very small, close-knit community. I know it's right across from the senior center. It did not have as many crafts and things because the senior center was right across the street
Wonderful caring attention and great valuereviewed on: 04/21/2014 by Anonymous
My parents have only moved in this month, so this is just a quick preliminary impression so far. Legend Gardens is a good fit for our situation. The personal and caring attention the owner and staff offers is very impressive. Overall we are all very happy with our choice of Legend Gardens.
Mom loves it here!reviewed on: 03/01/2019 by Juliana Gerace
Mom has been at Legend Gardens over a year now and is very happy. In fact, never did I expect her to adjust so easily and quickly as she did when we moved from Orange County. The improvements I see since Larry, the new administrator has come on board are the very assuring presence of a full-time nurse on staff, much more variety in activities offered, and a general consistency in reviewing the quality of care. It is already a pleasant facility, small enough where the staff know residents by name and take time to interact individually. No place is perfect, but I don't think I could have found anything better for the price in Palm Desert where we live only 7 minutes away! Very grateful for all!

We are so happy with Legend Gardens. We looked at a couple other places that were more fancy and bigger and honestly they have been nothing but amazing and treat her like she is family. They have gone over and above to help us with anything we have needed. I would absolutely recommend them.
