For trustworthy Alzheimer’s care, San Jose’s new MorningStar at San Tomas is one of the best. Located in West San Jose and bordered to the north by the city of Santa Clara, we offer easy access to I-280 and the San Tomas Expressway with Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and O’Connor Hospital blocks away.
Residents have a choice of 42 studio or companion suites within our two-story community as well as access to open and inviting common areas. Lavender Sky, MorningStar’s own philosophy of supported living for the memory-impaired, guides our team in thoughtfully caring for our most tender residents.
Alzheimer’s Care San Jose: Learn What Sets Our Home Apart
Once a family decides to entrust MorningStar at San Tomas 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. With new SafelyYou technology, we can detect and prevent falls for memory care residents with (AI) Artificial Intelligence. Ask our Wellness Director about the use of SafelyYou for your loved one.
MorningStar has communities across the Western US and has proudly earned a reputation for “casting a new light” on senior living. Please contact us to reserve your select Alzheimer’s care suite in San Jose.
The first seniors I ever loved were my paternal grandparents, Ignacio and Inocensia, who took guardianship of me when I was 5 years old. Grandmother became “Mom” while grandfather was always “Uelo” (short for abuelo). They instilled in me the value of selfless service and being present. Though the middle grandchild, I was dubbed the responsible one, assigned as caregiver to siblings older and younger than myself. Years later it’s easy to explain the career I love: being an advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves. I love the connection I make with residents, the unconditional love they give with no ulterior motive and I, in turn, give them. There is no greater feeling.
The first senior I ever loved was my Grandma who had Alzheimer’s. She is one of the key reasons I became a Nurse, inspired further by the way my entire family rallied around Grandma to love and care for her. She taught me how to bring out my best self through love and passion, lessons I intend to put into practice at MorningStar. The mission of MorningStar resonates with me. I’m honored to be a part of it.
