Many of us joke of “senior moments” when we have glitches in our recall. However, a true diagnosis of brain disease, where memory loss and other cognitive functions begin to deteriorate, is a sobering reality. It ushers seniors and their families onto a winding and mysterious road. MorningStar is honored to offer supported living for those with memory impairment, walking alongside on this unexpected journey.
MorningStar’s signature philosophy and approach in dementia care is described by the expanse of possibilities we call “Lavender Sky” where our ambition is to thoughtfully enter, embrace and explore. Ask us more.

TENDER DEMENTIA CARE
Introduction to our Philosophy & Approach
LIVE TWICE THE STORY
Enjoy these miracle moments of connecting and caring
We offer Short-term Stays (30 days or less) for those times when a senior’s regular caregiver is needing a vacation. These respite stays are ideal for those recovering from surgery or otherwise convalescing. MorningStar offers the quiet quarters and attendance you need to fully recover. We also offer the companionship and community that is just as much a part of healing.
MorningStar offers Companion Living where two unrelated people of the same sex share a suite. The benefits go beyond saving on rent. A roommate can ease the transition into community life. The presence of a roommate can encourage more confident socialization, boost energy, increase appetite and improve sleep.
Thanks to technology from SafelyYou, MorningStar’s fall management partner, families and our own clinical team can gain insight into fall detection and prevention for memory care residents.
