Alzheimer’s Care Albuquerque: Learn What Sets Our Home Apart
Once a family decides to entrust MorningStar at North Ridge with the care of their loved one, we use a query called “To Know Me is To Love Me,” to aid us in creating a daily routine to stimulate or calm in response to the resident’s mood or situation. Our daily calendar of activities includes listening or dancing to music, physical exercise, arts and crafts, and the celebration of special events.
Each resident receives daily health monitoring, 24/7 care from a well-trained staff, access to licensed nurses and other supportive third-party services. Above all we believe our residents deserve to be treated with the utmost respect.
MorningStar’s unique mission statement “to honor, to value, to invest” sets us apart from other senior living communities. Our sister community, MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care of Albuquerque is right next door. Contact us to learn more about the most trusted Alzheimer’s care in Albuquerque.
The first senior I every loved was Grandma Celia. During summer visits to her home, I learned how to iron the pillowcases every week. More importantly, she taught me the meaning of family and the importance of building memories with loved ones. God gifted me with servant’s heart; what better way to use my gift than to care for seniors who paved the path for us and deserve only the best of care and utmost respect. Whenever the day is tough, I walk the community and am reminded why I do my job. Whether it’s singing “This Little Light of Mine,” listening to a resident play piano or just chatting, I walk away feeling rejuvenated.
Grandma Margaret was the matriarch of our family, teaching many things, but above all to be kind, listen well and help where you can. I was raised by my grandparents and when they started to have health and memory issues there was no doubt I would be the one to take care of them. The radiant culture of MorningStar to selflessly serve struck a chord with me. The first time I toured North Ridge I could feel the compassion and love that the staff had for residents. I’ve never felt that at any other place I’ve worked. I want to serve each resident with compassion, dignity, respect and the grace they deserve.
