Our Dementia and Alzheimer Care Supports Independence
The central focus of MorningStar at Bear Creek is to provide dementia and Alzheimer care that is resident-directed, supporting choice and independence to the fullest extent possible. Situated on the southwest side of Colorado Springs, our thoughtfully-designed community allows residents the opportunity to move about freely and securely. MorningStar’s Life Enrichment program creates a highly individualized care plan for each resident based on his or her history, vocation, talents and preferences. Our professionally trained staff incorporates music, dance, art, aromatherapy and animals to help draw out our residents and to provide comfort and stimulation.

Loving, Respectful Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
When you visit Bear Creek, you will immediately be struck by the homey and comfortable atmosphere of our community. Rather than long sterile hallways, our 38,000 sq. ft. community was built in full consideration of the dispositions and behaviors of those with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-related memory impairment. Our figure-eight floor plan allows residents to explore yet find their way back to an open, inviting area.
MorningStar at Bear Creek is proud of the excellent reputation we have earned for our Alzheimer’s care, and have, in fact, become a resource center for the entire Colorado Springs area. We offer a free, eight-hour dementia and Alzheimer’s care course for families and professionals with content approved by the Alzheimer’s Association. To earn the Alzheimer’s Association designation as a “leader in dementia care,” 75% of our staff (across all departments) had to complete eight hours of dementia training sanctioned by the Association. We encourage you to learn more about our wonderful community.
MorningStar at Bear Creek brings a unique vision to senior living with our mission statement “to honor, to serve, to invest.” Built on a foundation of honoring God, valuing all seniors and selecting staff with a felt calling to serve, we are committed to creating a true home for residents amid a magnificent setting.
