The Easter Bunny (AKA Dining Room Supervisor, Lauren Wells) made a springtime appearance at MorningStar at Jordan, to the delight of many. Radiant concierge, Marjorie, came in early for her shift that Sunday so her colleague could tuck out and celebrate the holiday with her family.
Everything Green Happy Hour

Through our “GrandFriends” project, every team member at MorningStar at Jordan is paired with resident to nurture one-on-one relationships. Here Carlos, Tom and Dominic create a Valentine for their special resident. Under our roof, no one suffers a “Charlie Brown Moment” at the mailbox.
In the Name of Love
MorningStar of Jordan residents celebrated St. Valentine’s Day, as they do every holiday, with grateful hearts, festive foods and togetherness. (Valentine’s Day honors the loving devotion of a 3rd century Christian martyr, by the way).
Bob, a resident of MorningStar of Jordan, was a writer for The Wall Street Journal for 30 years. Small wonder he signed up for our Inklings Pen Pal program with Pine Grove Elementary. Yet it was wondrous to Bob’s daughter and niece, who for years had been coaxing stories out of him, only to receive a “one liner” response. Thanks to the fifth graders at Pine Grove, his tales are now being shared in print (how fitting for a journalist).
Saluting the National Western Stock Show
Western Wear Day at MorningStar at Jordan…here’s part of the team, decked out for our themed Happy Hour: Nick and Sean (Life Enrichment Assistants), Jill Friedentag (Life Enrichment Coordinator), Liz Payne (Lead Concierge) and Matt Misegadis (Business Office Manager). Cowpokes unite!

Stepping Up, Stepping Out..Until it is FINISHED
Team members, residents and family members (over 50 strong) from the six Denver MorningStar communities walked with hundreds from the Metro Area at the Denver Walk to End Alzheimer’s at City Park in September. Radiance (and a persevering hope for a cure) showed through our smiles, don’t you think? The Memory Walls that lined our booth proved a lovely way for people to record cherished memories from the reservoirs of their minds and hearts.
