Inspiration for Seniors
Our assisted living facility consists of 48 suites, including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments.
At MorningStar at Bear Creek, our residents enjoy highly personalized memory care. By getting to know each resident’s history, vocation, talents and preferences, we design a daily routine to stimulate or calm in response to a particular mood or situation.
Our Colorado Springs’ memory care leverages the power of music, dance, art, aromatherapy, and animals to heal and comfort residents, all while taking into consideration the uniqueness of each person.
Life Enrichment is found in the details, in the air, and in the colors all around us: the scent of laundry fresh from the dryer, open blinds that invite sunlight to stream in, and a bag of warm buttered popcorn to enjoy. Within all of this, our community truly becomes a home, wherein we can supply the external cues to reboot residents’ Circadian Rhythms, which regulate their appetite and sleep patterns.
Our memory care offers a gentle flow of activities on any given day from a Border Collie performing in the Great Room to residents attempting the hula with a group of Hawaiian dancers on our hardwood stage. Another afternoon may find us gathered for Bible Study in our magnificent Hearth Room. With its exposed beams and vaulted ceiling, it offers a cathedral air and great acoustics for a verse of “Amazing Grace.” Afterward is teatime, where flavors and aromas are heightened in such beautiful surroundings. On fair days (of which Colorado Springs has many), you may find us enjoying sundaes and s’mores tucked around our glassed-in fire pit on the back patio, soaking in the panoramas of mountain, city and sky.
We truly believe that senior assisted living should be comfortable, personalized and enriching. MorningStar at Bear Creek is dedicated to providing our Colorado Springs’ memory care residents the finest senior living, day programming and respite care.
Our art therapist, Debbie Wilson, was recently interviewed on KCME’s “Culture Zone,” offering public radio listeners a greater understanding of the power of art therapy for the memory impaired.
MorningStar at Bear Creek named “Alzheimer’s Association Leader in Dementia Care”
To help families research memory care communities, the Alzheimer’s Association established a program called “Recognized Leaders in Dementia Care.” To be so designated, a senior living community is required to enroll 75% of its staff in an eight-hour training that encompasses brain pathology, communication techniques, and methods of lessening agitation with non-pharmaceuticals. Colorado is the only Alzheimer’s Association chapter in the country offering this special program. MorningStar at Bear Creek is proud to have earned this special recognition of our expertise in serving the memory-impaired.
When the time is right, allow us to share with you our passion for serving seniors with dementia.
