Legacy Place

Allentown, PA

Modeled after small houses in Great Britain, Legacy Place “is wholly dedicated to accommodation and care of members of the community of Jehovah’s Witnesses in a loving, spiritual environment staffed by brothers and sisters.” Phase one includes a 10-bed memory care small house and two paired 10-bed assisted living small houses. Each of the paired houses has its own living, dining and support areas, while sharing services, such as the production kitchen, spa and exercise room, for operational efficiency. The layout maintains private zones where the residences are located, public zones containing the living, dining and courtyard spaces and service zones for deliveries, storage and staff functions.
