Senior Living Santa Clara –
A Community Designed around Residents’ Needs
The serene atmosphere of MorningStar at San Tomas is created by a celebrated architectural and design team to promote the comfort, well-being and safety of residents. Our compassionate caregivers are hired for their big hearts and understand it is a privilege to walk alongside residents and their families on this unexpected journey.
Each of our 42 suites is equipped with handicap-accessible bathrooms and emergency call systems and range in size from 318 to 492 square feet. While the building is secure, we encourage and support independence as much as possible through clear wayfinding.
Although new to the area, MorningStar communities are found across the Western US and represent the finest in senior living with a unique mission statement “to honor, to serve, to invest.” If you need trusted senior living, Santa Clara families should contact us to reserve a select suite.
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.
