“Yesterday I was eating at Village Inn and about 12 people from MorningStar at Jordan came in. I have to say: when I am of an age where I need a little help, I hope someone like Sean (MorningStar team member) is there for me. He is attentive, encouraging and engaging. There are some lucky folks at MorningStar at Jordan.” (Centennial citizen)

Yum

MorningStar at Jordan didn’t let the spring snowstorm damper our Dunkin’ Donuts “Outing.” We transformed the second floor Life Enrichment Room into Jordan’s Java House, bringing in donuts and hot cocoa with marshmallows, flavored coffees and tea.

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).

Pen Pals

pen-pals
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).

Gridiron Fan – Here at MorningStar at Jordan, John makes cork football coasters in readiness for our Super Bowl party. He made three: one for his beer, one for his water and one to give to his son. We love the game around here, even when the Broncos are absent.

For My Valentine – We made lovely Valentine décor with MorningStar of Jordan residents. Some chose to put them on their walkers, like Amalia, while others hung them on their doors.

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.
