Since the move in process is naturally a difficult and emotional one, there were a few issues with my loved one. Each one of them was addressed immediately and appropriately by the MorningStar staff.

Perfect facility for loved ones who need memory care and support.
Sadly, mom passed away under Hospice care at the facility after just 3 months of residing at Morningstar with complications from Alzheimer's. The admin and staff were amazing. We had numerous concerns with the outside medical provider that they used, but I believe they contract with someone else now. I would recommend the MorningStar Memory Care at Bear Creek. It's a beautiful facility set up specifically for memory care.

Exceptional care with a very personal touch
The staff was very attentive to each person there. It was very clean, the food was good, the atmosphere was very nice and peaceful for visitors as well. The personal attention they give each resident is incredible. We were very lucky to have found a place like this for my Dad. When he was passing, staff came by to say goodbye.

our families experience with a nice community but needs improvements
We were so excited about Bear Creek being the best place for my dad but a few weeks into his stay, his care went downhill. Those who we came in contact with were wonderful. When my mom visited once a week, SHE would have to help my dad get shaved, showered, hair combed, figure out which towels, clothes were clean or dirty. Never ate with him so don't really know. We were told when we signed paperwork that residents were always busy. NOPE! They only had one activities director out 3 positions. That activities director rarely did anything with residents. DEFINITELY not worth the outrageous cost. We moved my dad from Bear Creek after only 2 months

Transition is always hard especially in the presence of dementia. It pains us to know your family lost faith in us and that your experience was anything other than excellent. Your father was wonderful and we enjoyed him thoroughly during his stay. Our community has been strengthened with a change in leadership and we believe you would be pleased to see that care coordination and robust programming are firmly in place in service to our residents. We wish you all the best.

All fluff and no substance
My father was there recently and the staff turnover is abysmal. They cannot seem to keep staff more than a few months. It takes such special people to work with these clients, and they should be paid accordingly . The management is not friendly and is ugly to staff, which probably does not help. I would talk to staff about whether they like working somewhere before placing a loved one in any facility.

John, we do not recognize this resident profile. Are you sure you have the correct community? If your experience was MorningStar, we sincerely apologize. Your remarks are antithetical to our mission, culture and standards of life enrichment programming. Senior Executive Director, Terry LaMantia, would welcome a call at the community to hear your concerns and make things right.

The services that they provide here are great. There is someone in her room checking in on her every 45 minutes and they are on top of any health concerns. The staff have been absolutely wonderful and have made me feel comfortable having my loved one here. The facility is strictly memory care based which has been super helpful. I would recommend MorningStar to others looking.

Kindness from the top down
No facility is perfect -- especially in these trying times -- but Morningstar's executive director, [name removed], is a truly kind and caring man. When my father developed COVID, [name removed] immediately implemented a compassionate care exception to the standard isolation protocol so my mother and I were able to visit him regularly before he passed. He showed genuine personal concern for us throughout this difficult experience and in the immediate aftermath. The institution works generally well with Bristol Hospice and Brookdale Home Health Care, which attended my father. They also made a fuss over what turned out to be his last birthday, with his favorite German chocolate cake and a movie. "Happy" is a relative concept for people who wind up in these residences, but my father was certainly happier here, and more engaged, than at a previous, larger facility, and Morningstar was a much more aesthetically pleasing place to visit.

The challenges of this pandemic have been outsized. But we dug deep, inspired by the MorningStar mission and out of deep love and devotion to our senior residents. May God continue to comfort you as you grieve your father's passing. It was a privilege for MorningStar to have joined your family in loving and elevating his life.

Our experience with MorningStar
We chose MorningStar Memory Care at Bear Creek because they were the closest to where I lived and they came with a high rating. They were very good with communication, they had a newsletter to keep families updated and were responsive and always tried to keep us connected with my loved one. I thought they were way overwhelmed with our needs and they did not keep very good control of laundry, some things were missing. Overall, I would recommend to others looking.
