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. (Resident Couple’s Family)

Connecting with—loving—every single resident is effortless for me, even the cantankerous ones(!)—especially them, in fact, because I understand there’s something behind that mood, physically, emotionally. So I ll ask, ‘What can I do to make it better, make you happy, this very moment?’ I stop and listen. And they see that. Listening and hearing is key. (Robin Meehan, Life Enrichment Coordinator)
“You have a super staff. They’re superb. Unreal. And have helped my husband so much.” (Resident’s wife)

To Hear More Clearly
MorningStar at Mountain Shadows is proud to offer technology that enables those with hearing aids to receive audio directly to their instruments without reverberation or background noise.

Installed in our Activities Room and Theatre/Chapel, this “hearing loop” will greatly improve our residents’ ability to understand and participate.  The system provides the clearest, cleanest sound imaginable, yet does not require a headset, as it works with the T-Coil (or Telecoil) with which most hearing aids are equipped.

A T-coil is a tiny wireless receiver inside hearing aids, accessible via the programming button. Consult your audiologist to confirm it has been activated. You will be amazed at its effect.

For those without hearing aids or T-coils in their aids, headsets are available to help them hear through the loop.

All the staff at Mountain Shadows are exceptional, and it starts with Brittany. I have never met more compassionate staff in my 12 years of caring for my mom and having her at numerous facilities in Colorado Springs. (Resident’s daughter)
