Assisted Living – Peoria AZ’s Finest Community
Newly opened in September 2015 on the north side of Glendale, MorningStar offers residents a lifestyle of comfort, wellness and community within its warm and inviting common areas and contemporary décor. Although the truest expression of the MorningStar brand is centered on its warm and caring staff; more than any other factor, they make our home a true home.
Our Arrowhead community has 60 private assisted living suites on two levels, with spacious studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans (some over 600 square feet). We also have 25 secure suites devoted to the individualized care of those with memory impairment from Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases within our Reflections Neighborhood, which is on its own one-story wing.
Beyond the impressive architectural features and extensive amenities, our highest goal is to create an atmosphere of love and community for our permanent and short-term respite care residents. And for our memory care residents, every day presents us with the opportunity to lovingly support choice and independence as much as possible and, above all, to affirm individual dignity and value.
MorningStar at Arrowhead’s Interior Design Wins National Kudos

Glimpses of the Heart
Dir, Community Relations
Grandpa Berrnie and Grandma Helen had a huge role in my upbringing. After taking care of
Grandma who developed dementia and Parkinson’s, and seeing our family struggle to adapt, I resolved to help make the journey easier for other families. Seniors teach me to enjoy life today, rather than wish for some distant future. They model kindness, and how we must not rush nor take things for granted.
Since childhood, I’ve had an old soul, the direct result of being raised by my Grandmother
Willa (nicknamed “Pigg”) and my Great Grandma. Grandma raised 11 kids, then two grandkids. At her passing at 94 years old, she had 169 grands, greats and great greats. Seniors like her teach me quality over quantity, and they exemplify patience. The MorningStar mission to honor God and its culture of Radiance is so very important to me.
Life Around Our House
“Kindred Spirits, Living in Community”
Testify to Love
“There are times when we are placed in a position where we have to rely on others to assist in the care of those who are the greatest part of our heart: our parents. It is most often a situation we suddenly find ourselves in. It is perhaps one of the most difficult decisions we will ever make. Having the best intentions, we quickly search out a care community with the best location, most amenities, pleasing décor, best food, etc. But what in long run matters most is the care. It takes a very special person to go beyond their job and care for those who are not their given family. From the first day Mom was at MorningStar, there was never a question in my mind that it was the right choice. I never once questioned the level of care she was receiving, from the concierge to the dining room servers, the housekeepers to the maintenance team and, of course, the caregivers. Every person, from day one, went above and beyond my greatest hopes and expectations; you all became her family when I could not be there. Saying “thank you” seems inadequate for all that you meant to Mom, and all that you will always mean to me. It takes a very special person to devote their lives to the service of our greatest members of society, and each of you do it with apparent ease, humor, respect and, most importantly love. You will never be forgotten.”
“The care John received from your extraordinary Reflections staff could not have been kinder or more loving than if he had been living with family. Many of the staff remarked to me how they loved his smile; but it was because they were so good to him that he smiled so much. The wonderful people who worked with John never hesitated to do anything needed to keep him comfortable, entertained and smiling. I am deeply grateful.”Read more
“The MorningStar Reflections staff is very caring and compassionate. They are sensitive to and supportive of the needs of residents and families. A wonderful group.”
“Very professional group in all departments. Took care of all of my father’s needs in getting settled in his new home.”
“MorningStar was the top choice of the five communities our family visited. The staff took a personal interest in us and our unique situation, which was deeply appreciated. The decor was bright and cheerful, but the peaceful feeling stood out the most.”
“Loved seeing the building. Had a great visit. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable.”
