Passionate Care, Personalized —
Welcome to Memory Care in The Cottage
at Legacy Oaks of South Austin, TX
At Legacy Oaks of South Austin, we believe that the good life for our Alzheimer’s and dementia care residents is found in moments. Moments filled with happiness, kindness, purposefulness, and laughter. The kind of small, pleasurable moments that make life worth living. The ones that are best enjoyed in the present. That’s why we offer a comprehensive, and loving approach to memory care in The Cottage – because every moment makes a difference in the quality of life for our residents.
We intentionally keep the number of available rooms in The Cottage low and our staff per resident ratios high so that all of our residents can enjoy warm, attentive, compassionate care in a small, home-like environment. We want our memory care residents to feel like they’re part of a caring, close-knit community. We want them to be reminded every day of two things we feel strongly about: that they’re important and that they matter.

Enticing Memory Care Dining Experiences
In The Cottage, we understand that food is both nutrition and experience. We serve only fresh, delicious, scratch-made food with warm, friendly service from menus specifically designed to abide by the latest nutritional guidelines in both physical and cognitive wellness. We also offer individualized dietary monitoring and do our best to tailor menu selections according to the history and preferences of our residents.
Additionally, we employ several programs to help entice healthy appetites and encourage good nutrition. We regularly schedule Spice Club and our hand towel aromatherapy sessions to engage the proper senses in close proximity to meals. Our residents can also get involved in the food preparation process with our weekly and monthly Chef Action Stations. By creating opportunities to engage with our residents using food, we hope to go beyond providing a healthy diet into providing another way to connect.
