Glimpses of the Heart
MorningStar to me means LOVE. The minute you walk through the door you feel at
home. 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.
At the age of 16 as a CNA, I met the first senior whom I ever loved: sweet Bill, who
taught me what a gentleman is. It is so true when they say seniors are The Greatest Generation. They have seen so many changes in their lifetime, and sacrificed so much for our sake. There is so much to learn from their tales of living.
Dir, Community Relations
Seniors have traveled much farther along life’s journey and have a lot to teach
about what matters most. Through them, I’m able to set right priorities in my own life. What attracts me most to MorningStar is teamwork. There is no “that’s not my job” attitude. Knowing you have a strong supportive group of people makes all the difference.

I would highly recommend MorningStar.”

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.”
