Memory Care – Lakewood Residents are Treated with the Dignity & Attention they Deserve
Our memory care is designed around the special needs of our most tender residents; and we are honored to walk alongside the individual and their family on this unexpected journey.

Daily purposeful programs and activities are designed to calm or stimulate and include music, arts and crafts, physical exercise and special events.
Our “small house” environment provides residents with a sense of well-being, connectedness and independence while getting necessary services. Individuals receive routine health monitoring and 24/7 senior care along with access to licensed nurses, medication managers and other supportive third-party providers. MorningStar has several dozen communities across the Western US, and has proudly earned a reputation for “casting a new light” on senior living.

LIVE TWICE THE STORY
Enjoy these miracle moments of connecting and caring
Grandmother Polly helped to raise me; in return I became her teenage caregiver when she developed early onset Alzheimer’s. She helped me more than she could have known after the sudden death of my mother. Polly was loving, funny, soulful and caring. I am who I am because of her. It was Grandma who implored me to go into healthcare, saying I had healing hands. I have taken her direction to heart, and treat every resident with the dignity I would expect for my own grandmother. MorningStar understands the importance of rising to the occasion of serving residents who trust in us with their lives.
I first fell in love with seniors through wonderful grandparents whose amazing life stories are now part of my history. The seniors I serve today are the most amazing people on the planet. They teach me patience and joy. I’m always prepared to hear their priceless advice. I was attracted to MorningStar because of its core values, and am proud to serve with a company that honors God, values all seniors and invests generously in its team.
I was fortunate to grow up in the company of all four grandparents who lived near our family home, two in a small town, two on a farm. They had a wealth of knowledge to share on perseverance and courage in the face of adversity. Their best advice was that laughter really is the best medicine. Seeing them active in their communities modeled the importance of caring for our neighbors. Truly, we are all better together. It is my privilege to help older adults continue to contribute their wisdom and talents to the world.
