Welcome to MorningStar
It’s in the air. You can feel it. You can see it with your own eyes every day at MorningStar Senior Living: our staff flat out loving our residents, loving them like they do their own moms and dads.
Such genuine affection flows out of a core belief at MorningStar Senior Living, for we see our residents as heroes—men and women who have exacted out of life all its triumphs and trials, who in raw courage and tenacity have invested their days.
And now, it is our pleasure and privilege to invest in them.
MorningStar’s distinction among other senior living options begins with our mission statement: to honor, to serve, to invest. We’re intentional about populating our speech with these key motivators: to love from a deep place, to serve rather than be served, and to invest in that which matters most.
Conversely, there are words we avoid, terms associated with bygone decades where senior living choices were limited to institutional facilities, cold and clinical: “old folks home,” “rest home,” “nursing home”—most of them a far cry from a true home.
Welcome to a bright new day: MorningStar Senior Living.
In contrast to other senior assisted living facilities, MorningStar’s exceptional architecture and award-winning design, with amenities like salons, spa baths, theaters and libraries, are celebrated features under our roof. These and other graciously-appointed spaces are extensions of your private suite, spiffed and ready to receive callers.
In MorningStar homes that also boast an independent living neighborhood, we offer swimming pools and wine bars, dance floors and baseball teams.
Yet the prevailing feature under our roof, the one we’re most proud of, is community, built one loving relationship at a time. By this do we offer the very best in senior assisted living, memory care and respite care.
Our entire staff is energized in filling our senior living homes with ways to be better, together. Even for respite care residents (here for a short recuperative stay), there is always something astir. And for the most tender among us, memory care residents, each day presents opportunity to stimulate the brain and find moments of spontaneous joy.
You, the adult children of our residents, are such an important part of the MorningStar family too. We want you to consider this your home away from home.
So come on in, and stay a while. At MorningStar Senior Living.
The Stars are Multiplying: Newest Communities Underway
The constellation of MorningStars grows! Our existing community of Parker Senior Living by MorningStar is opening late 2015 a new independent and assisted living building on the southern end of our campus (it joins the existing assisted living and memory care community). We are well under way with three more assisted living and memory care communities in Glendale, AZ; Boulder, CO; and Fort Collins, CO, all of them boasting an Information Center on site, open and ready, with local teams eager to make your acquaintance. All three open this summer.
In April, we open the Information Center for two other assisted living & memory care communities: MorningStar of Wheat Ridge (Colorado) and MorningStar of Albuquerque (our first home in New Mexico). Both slated to open late 2015. Go to our Communities tab in the main navigation bar to learn more.
We have also broken ground on MorningStar at RidgeGate in Lone Tree, Colorado, a 224-suite senior living community for independent and assisted living and memory care. This home opens in late 2016. Check back soon for further updates on its progress.
Tree of Life
Here is our commissioned art piece, entitled Tree of Life, in celebration of our Name and our Mission to honor God, to value all seniors, to invest in our team. By this painting, we remind ourselves each day of our reason for being, and give evidence to the depth of our commitment to serve. You’ll find this “triptych” (three contiguous frames) hanging in all of our communities, together with an explanation of its greater symbolism. (Click Here)

Part of MorningStar’s chosen responsibility as a company, and as individuals, is to invest our time and talents in charitable projects within our own city and around the world. In this, Founder Ken Jaeger takes a decided lead (pictured at the Casa Bernabe orphanage in Nicaragua).
Ken is passionate about helping the poor in Third World countries. From his earliest days in Colorado, he was deeply impacted by abject poverty internationally. Ken resolved then to use any success he might achieve in combating despair with hope.
