Matt Agnew, Maintenance Director at MorningStar of Littleton is, well…very possessive. To hear him talk, it’s always “my residents this” and “my residents that.” But that only goes to show an obvious fact: Matt cares deeply about the individual welfare of each and every MorningStar resident.
Matt has endeared himself to “his residents” with an ever-present smile, adept skills, and boundless determination to please.
“It always comes down to communication, keeping promises and not taking shortcuts,” Matt attests. “If we need to order a part, we inform the resident of that. If we say we’re going to do something by a certain date, we make sure to accomplish it, or explain why. You have to be a man of your word.”
“In middle school, we were required to spend 80 hours volunteering in a nursing home. I loved it, so much so I stayed five years. It filled the void of not really knowing my own grandparents. I’d bike over there after school to join in on activities—and receive lots of hugs and kisses. I’ll never forget my special pals there, Maggie and Frannie (sisters in their 80s) and Paul, who wore overalls with a row of Bic pens in the bib pocket. Doing for others is what does it for me.
Making a difference in someone else’s life: that’s what it’s all about.”
(Matt Agnew, Facilities Director – MSL)
MorningStar of Littleton named “Alzheimer’s Association Leader in Dementia Care”
To help families research memory care communities, the Alzheimer’s Association established a program called “Recognized Leaders in Dementia Care.” To be so designated, a senior living community is required to enroll 75% of its staff in an eight-hour training that encompasses brain pathology, communication techniques, and methods of lessening agitation with non-pharmaceuticals. Colorado is the only Alzheimer’s Association chapter in the country offering this special program. MorningStar of Littleton is proud to have earned this special recognition of our expertise in serving the memory-impaired, with 84% of our staff thus trained. Learn More

Glimpses of the Heart
In my college days , my grandmother and I had a wonderful relationship. Every week,
she took time to write to me a letter, assuring that she was praying for me. In turn, some weekends I would travel three hours to visit and help her. She longed for those weekends; and at each, I would gain a greater appreciation of her love as I offered companionship in her loneliness. Over the years, she changed from Grandmother to a Friend. The blessing of that relationship stays with me today.
Thanks to my Maryland grandmother and West Virginian grandfather, I grew up listening
to stories of bygone days: horse and buggy travel along the East Coast; the high excitement over Baltimore City’s new trolley. My extended family (we’re talking Great-Great Aunts and Uncles, one of whom had actual wooden teeth) spoke often of the resourcefulness born of scarcity (newspapers tucked into shoes for insulation). I cherish these memories and the history they preserve. Happily for me, the storytelling continues here at MorningStar, where I’ve become an expert in nudging residents to share “just one more.”
Director, Community Relations
The first senior I ever loved was my Grandpa. In 1st Grade, I even took him to Show & Tell
as my very best Christmas present. This kind and gentle man taught me unconditional love and life lessons I still cherish today like how not to judge others until you’ve walked in their shoes. What a great foundation Grandpa gave me. The privilege of serving seniors is a gift from God. Personally and professionally, I’ve had the opportunity to work with them in joy-filled times and difficult times. Seniors have a magical way of touching my heart and giving life meaning as no other experience can.

“Too many seniors wait too long to move—so long that they can’t enjoy the activities and fun. This is too nice of a community to miss out on it.”
“I wouldn’t be alive if it weren’t for MorningStar. We are family.”Read more reviews
