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.

Thank you so much for the kind words. We never tire of hearing evidence that we have met and exceeded expectations.
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.
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.

Thank you. It has been of upmost importance to be transparent in our communication with family members. We appreciate your candid feedback as we strive for excellence at MorningStar.
This was a nice tour for care. The staff were nice and friendly and seems to be able to answer the questions I had on the care needed for my mom. I liked the cleanliness and the menu that was appealing. I would recommend this community to other families for the care that is offered.
