Glimpses of the Heart
I have cared for some amazing people who experienced things other only read in books…
stories from the man who worked for NASA, the man who paint the Enola Gay in WWII, the woman who played professional baseball for the Rockford Peaches, the woman who raised 12 children on her own (being a military widow). I’ve learned to cherish my freedom by listening to a man talk about his life in a concentration camp witnessing the death of his family. Most importantly, seniors have taught me to better understand love.
I remember sitting in the garage of my Great Uncle Mike, a retired railroad man, drinking soda…
while my sisters tended his garden. He thought me too young to know what weeds were. Mike was such a kind man, and I loved listening to him talk about the trains. Seniors are walking, talking history books. They teach you that all you need is faith, love, family and friends to keep moving forward, regardless of the world around you. MorningStar is place where we can be good, do good, and bring our faith to work.

My grandma was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when I was in middle school. I didn’t fully understand why my…
once-active grandma was now calling me by different names if she recognized me at all. My passion for senior care grew as I volunteered weekly in her Memory Care community, finding hew ways to enjoy Grandma, and coming to love her friends there. I went on to college to pursue a degree that would allow me to work every day with others on the same journey as Grandma Wright.
Life Around Our House
“The Memories We’re Making…Together”
Testify to Love
“I would like to extend my gratitude to the caregivers at MorningStar of Wheat Ridge as they provide wonderful, personalized care during the difficult time of hospice. They understand a person’s need who has lost the ability to communicate. This has helped develop trust from the families who are so appreciative of the care you all give. Thank you all for what you do.” (Lutheran Medical Center Hospice)
