Horrible place, do not put your loved one here, executive director lies to families

I would want others to know when looking into Morning Star of Boulder that our loved one was not given a shower for 23 days and I was never notified. She was sent to the hospital with a severe UTI and entered sepsis because of a simple UTI that was noticed too late when I was out of town. She contracted 5 UTI’s in the span of 5 months a year after the hospital incident. The executive director has no integrity and forced families to push their loved ones back to memory care through manipulation, pressure and lies to families (7 families in 6 weeks) in order to fulfill a directive to push assisted living in a more independent direction. This facility changed every single management position, both in memory care and assisted living, 3-4 times in a matter of 2.5 years. Since the building’s very opening, they have exhibited a consistent failure of management and executive/regional directorship. Morning Star puts money into its hotel-like, luxury feel and spacious apartments. They are selling real estate and not care. They use this to impress families, but you would never believe what goes on here beneath the veneer. Over the years we were here, they were frequently understaffed, putting pressure on caregivers who were fired if they spoke up. Good members of middle management struggled to do their job in a responsible fashion, but the current executive director put them under unreasonable pressure and in dubious binds, trying to please corporate. For one year, a good executive director was hired, who did a great job and listened to families and was making the facility better. However she was pushed out by corporate and left because they were focused on sales and business and would not allow her to serve the needs of her particular community. The current executive director cares more about her numbers and career than the residents. I heard multiple horror stories from other families and discovered broken state regulations and know they did not train staff properly. For example, they had illegal hoyers at some point in time. On multiple occasions I discovered only 2-3 staff members on the overnight shift for the entire building of over 100 residents. If your loved one does not encounter health issues or problems, you would never know these things. But when faced with real problems, there is serious incompetency, neglect, and abuse of power. Not just for us, but for many other families I knew there over the years. Due to these issues, after almost 3 years, we decided to leave in the fall of 2019. We found a 100% better community. Look around, talk to other families, do not be fooled by their sales pitches.

Morning Star Assisted Living & Memory Care Of Boulder

In general, when you walk in, things are nice and pristine. You see people around the community cleaning and the individual rooms are kept up very well also. The staff take a particular interest in the family members. They have been very accessible when I have questions or concerns and have been happy to assist my uncle with anything he needs. They have even sent me photos of him engaging in activities since I live out of state and cannot always be there. My uncle enjoys many of the activities they provide like bowling and taking trips to the ice cream shop. Morning Star Assisted Living & Memory Care Of Boulder is a very nice place and would not hesitate to recommend them to another family looking for a place for their loved one.

Our mom loves MorningStar, and we do, too!

My mother has been residing at Morningstar Boulder since May of 2019. My mom truly enjoys living there - she loves her apartment, the activities, and appreciates the attentive and caring staff. My family members also appreciate the compassionate attentive staff and the clean and airy environment. Note. I’ve read the negative reviews on this platform. It’s hard to believe these folks are talking about Morningstar Boulder. Never, have we mislead or experienced anything as horrible they explained. Thank you, Morningstar staff for all you do.
