If You Love Your Parent, DO NOT Put Them in MorningStar.
Had my mother here for 6 weeks in Memory Care. Beautiful facility, but forget about proper care and services. Promised service rarely delivered. What you get is an extremely high priced apartment, mediocre food, careless cleaning services (housekeeping and laundry) and medicinal services that are not to be counted on.
Care staff not properly trained. Express concerns to upper management, and they blow you off. Even concerns expressed by our medical provider - given directly to care management - were ignored. MorningStar is ALL about the $$$.
This review given after having my mother in two MorningStar properties a total of 1-1/2 years. This review is NOT sour grapes. It is given after MS given several opportunities to improve care and services. If you want the best care for your parent, go to Balfour.
Large facility with a pool
I toured this facility while looking for a place for my Mother-In-Law. It is a very nice facility but it is on the larger side. The marketing director who gave us the tour seemed to be very knowledgeable and even let us know all of the advantages of residing there. They do have a swimming pool, a larger outdoor space, and a nice courtyard. This facility also has independent care, assisted living, and a memory care unit. I would recommend this community to other families.
