Glimpses of the Heart
MorningStar to me means LOVE. The minute you walk through the door you feel at home. Read more
Residents are not the only ones smiling; the staff are also! Here I have the opportunity to do what I love: help seniors—and learn from them. I am privileged every day in knowing I have made a difference in someone’s life. By this, my own life is made complete. Seniors teach me to slow down, to be in the moment, and to enjoy all those who makes such precious moments happen.
“I was two when I went to live with my grandparents. Grandma often said the quickest
way to get old was to believe you were old. She learned how to drive at 65 and was doing “The Twist” at 68. When Grandma passed, we celebrated her life by dancing to Chubby Checkers. MorningStar residents are a lot like that. Living through the Great Depression and WWII, they didn’t give up then—or now. They remember the past, but live for today.”
Dir., Community Relations
The first senior I ever loved was my grandmother, who made everyone she spoke to
feel like he or she was the most important person in the world. She also shared with me her strong, unwavering faith. I first worked with seniors as a caregiver in high school, and loved learning their stories. Such wisdom and perspective! As I continued in other senior communities, I learned first hand the tremendous importance of not only the quality of care provided, but also the quality of caring. It is this level of caring that drew me to MorningStar.

Testify to Love
Without a shadow of doubt, I made the right decision in bringing Dad back home to MorningStar instead of moving him to skilled nursing. Like a beautiful stained glass window, each of your staff let light shine through uniquely to my heart to create a bigger picture of what true love looks like. (Resident’s daughter)
“My mother called your staff her “angels,” as indeed they were. Her days and nights at MorningStar were peaceful, active, enjoyable and in good company and in good care. Your staff administer care from the heart. I can see their faces and hear their sweet voices, and I want them to know how much their extra care meant to us, and that each night when I prayed for my mother I also prayer for them, asking God to bless my mother’s special caregivers.”Read more
“Your staff is amazingly prompt and always respectful. I never hear a harsh word or even see a frown. Each and every staff member is gentle, kind, thoughtful and never seems to be in a hurry. MorningStar has shown commitment and devotion to my family that is truly biblical.”
“I’m tickled pink with the countless ways your team serves residents and families.”
“We want to thank your staff for the professional and caring service to our mother during her stay at MorningStar. You are rated # 1 in the Springs for good reason!”
