Providence Senior Living will be comprised of a board of directors that will support the business affairs of Legacy Village of Cleveland, assist in possible care grants for seniors in need and coordinate research opportunities in the field of aging.

The 58,000-square-foot facility offers 39 spacious assisted living suites and 32 memory care apartments in a dedicated Alzheimer’s memory care wing known as The Harbor. The assisted living residents have the choice of large studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. The memory care residents may choose studio, companion and one-bedroom suites.
