It’s a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful—a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.

Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Our senior living community is affiliated with the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce, the Williamson Geriatric Council and the Senior Services Network. These professional relationships assist our community with educating the local community about retirement living. Our professionals often serve as speakers, providing information to the Franklin, Tennessee community about topics relating to the geriatric population.
We all know how important pets are to our lives. We don’t have to examine studies by physicians and scientists to know that when we spend time loving our pets we feel better! Pets are loyal and lovable, and offer us unconditional devotion. They bring out our instincts for nurturing; we feel needed and relied upon. Our stress levels decrease, we feel accepted just as we are with no judgments.
It is often one of the most valued relationships a person can have. While we as individuals may feel a variety of emotions, pets don’t have mood swings or meltdowns. They allow us to hold, stroke, groom, or just play with them, and are very good listeners! For most pet owners, the relaxation our animals provide us by just being there as our friend, enriches our daily life and allows us to go on with the tasks of living.
Because we at Emeritus at Legacy Crossing value this time-tested connection people have with their pets, we invite you to have your small pet live with you at our community. We want you to smile, laugh, and feel good! We accept most small pets, and have minimal deposit requirements to make the necessary accommodations.
