Newly Renovated MorningStar of Hayward Opens Its Doors
With the grand re-opening of MorningStar Senior Living of Hayward, seniors dealing with the challenges of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia have an exceptional new option for elevated living at this community that includes state-of-the-art memory care.
This new offering is the crowning touch on the extensive renovation of the seven-story community that began when MorningStar Senior Living took over the management of the property in May 2019. Located on the second floor of the building, the thoughtfully redesigned memory care neighborhood is a welcome addition to the community’s long-standing independent and assisted living options.
Bright and welcoming, this secure memory care gives seniors a choice of 35 studios and one-bedroom apartments. It provides access to spacious common areas as well as an outdoor sky deck where residents can socialize and soak up the sun in a safe environment.
As part of its dedication to taking senior living innovation to the next level, the community incorporates MorningStar’s signature Lavender Sky memory care philosophy which takes a holistic approach rooted in the unique history of each resident. Special offerings designed to enrich the lives of its residents are a mainstay of the program.
Memory care at MorningStar features BrainWise menus as well activities like pet and music therapies for mental stimulation and emotional calm. To ensure residents feel comfortable and secure, the program takes into account cultural sensitivities with proprietary dementia training for every member of the community’s professional team.
The special touches MorningStar provides as a national leader in dementia care don’t stop with the residents. Its Unforgettable series geared to families and the broader community is designed to educate anyone who might come in contact with one of the estimated 50 million people around the world coping with cognitive impairment.
MorningStar of Hayward now also boasts a larger dining room, an inviting bistro/bar, art studio, theater, fitness center and salon. All 227 resident suites have been updated and refurbished. Private patios and landscaped walking paths make the surrounds as inviting as the renovated interior.
