National Church Residences is nudging social interaction at Legacy Village to provide a healthy sense of community and belonging. 

National Church Residences (NCR) has a proven track record of excellence in providing homes and services to seniors, enabling them to live healthier and more satisfying lives, while serving all income levels. In recent years, NCR has expanded their mission to include full-service retirement communities and invited MKM to partner in their effort to more purposefully engage residents and encourage socialization.

 

Legacy Village includes independent living cottages fronting a campus walkway, and a 98-apartment mixed use congregate living building planned to unite the campus. NCR empowers residents to engage on their own terms, providing natural areas to encounter neighbors. These unforced social interactions add life and vitality to life-plan communities.
