Top notch facility

This place is great. The food is PHENOMONAL. Her room is very nice. They have her as high functioning as she can possibly be. We had some difficulty with her phone but she takes it to the front desk and they will call us. The care is excellent. The only problem we have is you cannot put holes in the walls to put pictures, so the room is pretty bare. The facility itself is very clean, if any of the residents have accidents they are right on it. Victoria who is the main point of contact is on the ball. All during the week they have exercise classes going on and mom absolutely loves them. I would definitely recommend MonringStar to other families- it is top notch. It is expensive, but it is worth it for the care received.... Read more

Happy with our choice

Our experience with MorningStar has been excellent, they were way above any other place that we looked at. The facility has the options for you to select that cover every need that the resident may have. From emptying the waste baskets to changing the bedding, they go all out to take care of you. I would give the food a five plus. There is a chef who designs the meals and they have an excellent cook on site. They are flexible with their meals, if you do not like the main option, there are many other choices to choose form. I would absolutely recommend the facility to others.

my review of MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care of Albuquerque

We toured the community and the facility was very nice. The tour was good and the staff was very friendly. The only issue we had was the pricing was out of our range and the community was not pet friendly.

Thank you for singing our praises. We regret our rates did not accommodate your budget (though we do have a “financial concierge” that can help families with ways to finance retirement living). We do want to correct you on one point: MorningStar is pet friendly; our Albuquerque community is home to a number of resident dogs and cats, as well as our new house dog, Cleo.

Morningstar has a wonderful vibe

The staff and residents at Morningstar went out of their way to make us welcome. The residents who sat with us for dinner in the dining room had great things to say about living there. We observed live music during a weekday and many activities. The place has an active and very caring feel.

Help that I Needed

I applaud and recommend Morning Star of Albuquerque Assisted Living. The facility is spacious, modern and comfortable. The programs available to the residents are numerous and appropriate to many different levels of physical and mental capabilities and interests. The availability of access to management is outstanding. Care Services are adjusted and increased to serve changing and evolving needs

So happy with our MorningStar experience!

We are so pleased with the beautiful community, the aesthetic, the activities, the leadership and the care. We value the access to the MorningStar of Albuquerque staff most of all. They are responsive, caring, considerate, and they work in partnership with families and hospice to provide an integrated approach to the care for our Dad and Grandad. Thank you for all you do!

We have been a part of several communities in our area, but the sense of family, the access to the staff and the stellar care Dad has received is unparalleled with our MorningStar experience.

A pretty facade does not mean quality senior care

Both my parents have dementia and moved into the memory care section. Things were so bad, I had to move my parents out after just short of two months of living there. The afternoon/evening memory care staff is lacking in training and in being able to be responsible and follow a simple schedule. My father needs to have his catheter emptied of urine every three to four hours by a caregiver due to his having dementia. On several occasions, the evening staff would forget to do this, and while my father was sleepy/tired and wanting to get into bed, he himself would disconnect the leg bag from the catheter himself, causing urine to get all over his mattress. On a couple of occasions, I had to call to remind the staff that his leg bag needed to be drained, and to get him ready to go to bed. There were other problems, but one that should be mentioned is the gentleman who was the medications tech. One evening just before dinner, and with my brother present, while he was taking my father's blood sugar reading, he wiped off the blood from my father's finger with his own bare finger, thus causing cross contamination. This guy would never wear gloves. One time, when I asked why he didn't wear gloves while doing the blood sugar monitoring, he answered with, "If I'm in a rush, I don't wear gloves." Can you believe it. Many of the discrepancies were reported to the Director of Nursing (who in my opinion was not at all qualified for this position) and she never corrected anything. She would just make promises. The Executive Director also didn't make any improvements, and sometimes would not even respond to my emails. The list of things goes on and on, and like I mentioned at the beginning, my parents were living there just short of two months.

We are so sorry that your exposure to the MorningStar culture was anything other than what it is designed to be: a place of grace. Our website aptly describes the high calling we feel to serve, and the aspirations we reach for every day, not flawlessly, but sincerely and diligently. Our growth as a company is reflective of the foundational strength of our mission and core values. And our local adherence to these brand principles have earned MorningStar of Albuquerque a solid reputation with families and professionals, who testify to our community’s compassion. We are known as much for our ability to cater to individual needs as to love well. As to staff training, we are confident in its thorough coverage of major aspects of senior health, particularly dementia care. Our continuing education centers on specific topics, including catheter care. Hard as we work to serve all beneath our roof, it’s true that we are not an ideal fit for every family. We had hoped MorningStar could be that for your family, and believed we were addressing your concerns as they arose. Still, we receive your candor as an opportunity to improve for we view our relationships with seniors (and their families) as a sacred trust. Wishing you and your parents the very best.

Review of MorningStar

MorningStar has a really good reputation in the Albuquerque Senior Living community. I have heard that it is a great place to work, where the employees feel valued and have even tried to come back after leaving for one reason or another. The residents also seem so happy when I've stopped by to visit. They look well cared for and engaged.
