MorningStar’s Parker Community

Parker Senior Living by MorningStar proudly offers three neighborhoods within its spacious community:
• Independent Living
• Assisted Living
• Memory Care

Offers Luxury Independent & Assisted Living Together with Secure Memory Care
parker-senior-living

Since 2012, when we first opened assisted living and memory care in Parker, we have dedicated ourselves to offering residents the finest care within a genuine family atmosphere. Our original building offers 45 assisted living suites as studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans on two levels.

In our Reflections neighborhood, devoted to the individualized care of those with memory impairment, we have 19 secure studios in our original building and 24 more studios and one-bedrooms in an adjoining building which opened December 2014.

As further evidence of our success in living out the MorningStar mission, our lovely senior community expanded still further with the January 2016 opening of a new building on the southern end of our campus, this one designed for luxury independent & assisted living. The new four-story building features 49 Independent Living suites and 54 Assisted Living suites (as large as 1609 square feet, including three styles of penthouses).

Our team works hard to offer our residents a quality of life other senior living facilities simply cannot match. Parker Senior Living by MorningStar has become a centerpiece of vibrant life in the town of Parker, a place that invites entire families and civic groups to gather. MorningStar’s exceptional architecture and design will impress you from the first. Our graciously-appointed spaces are extensions of your private suite, polished and ready to receive your family and friends anytime.

Frequently Asked Questions about Parker Senior Living by MorningStar
Read more...

I did considerable research before my mother moved to PALM, but for both of us the decision was an easy one. We love the size, the homey atmosphere…this place is tops!  I cannot even begin to name all of the outstanding employees you have.  The care managers are exceptional; they listen carefully, and answer questions over and over without ever getting frustrated or short!  It is crucial that my mother is happy—I love her dearly—and as hard as it was for her to give up living alone, we both know this was the right decision.  She is so happy here, thus, I am happy! (Resident’s daughter)

I am blessed to come to work each day. At the top of my To-do List is making sure the residents are taken care of: this means listening to them, meeting their needs, and offering the best quality of life. What my residents may not realize is that they are taking care of me and enriching my life. Every day I learn something new from them that helps build my character and makes me a better person! (Cara O’Connor, Executive Director)

My mother has undergone an incredible transformation since moving to Parker Senior Living by MorningStar two months ago. We, her family, feel her success story is entirely due to your amazing, attentive, caring team.

To appreciate this dramatic story, it’s necessary to review what our mother was like for most of her adult life.

Despite being surrounded by a family who loved her, Mom was an angry, suspicious, nervous woman. Suffering as she did from depression and anxiety, for six decades she never left the house unaccompanied by a family member. Her social disorder prevented her from making any new friends that entire time. After my father passed away in 2000, Mom moved to an independent living apartment. Though meals were provided, she never ate in the dining room nor interacted with others.

“I want to slip in a big hug for your team at MorningStar. I am continually amazed at the care, love and best of all, the giggles they share with the residents in Reflections (Memory Care). I wasn’t able to be in the community for a few days, yet felt such support for Mom the whole time. My husband was able to be there and observed such great care and kindness. Thank you. Not an easy time, but your staff is so wise, helpful and loving. The work you all do at MorningStar is precious. Thank you. (Resident’s daughter)

Parker Senior Living by MorningStar named “Leader in Dementia Care” by Alzheimer’s Association
LDC_logo

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. Parker Senior Living by MorningStar is proud to have earned this special recognition of our expertise in serving the memory-impaired, with 95% of our staff thus trained. Go and – Learn More.

veteranPictured here on Flag Day is Colonel Charles Thomann, a resident of Parker Senior Living by MorningStar, who served in WWII and the Korean and Vietnam Wars as a career soldier. “Chuck” retired in 1977 from the U.S. Army, a decorated full colonel, his military jacket weighted with campaign ribbons, badges, medals and insignias. Born in Pawnee City, Nebraska, his father’s work as Superintendent of Schools brought the family to Yuma, Colorado. By 1944, with America still ensnared in World War II, 18-year-old Chuck enlisted, eager to contribute to an Allied victory.
