A good place for Mom

The physical surroundings are very nice at MorningStar Senior Living of Pasadena. The staff is very good. But at times, they're short staffed, so some housekeeping may be delayed. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. My mom had two medical incidents which they caught quickly and called emergency services. They contacted me right away. When my mom moved in a year ago she was one of only a few ethic Chinese residents. Since then, that population has more than doubled. My mom is an English/Chinese speaker and can speak her native language with a couple of others. The food is good, but no Chinese food. The move-in was very smooth. I definitely recommend this facility to others.

The best experience

We went to several places and this was the one facility that did not depress me. People were up and about and engaged. The care and the humor from the staff was just wonderful. His room was lovely as well. They always kept in communication with me if there was any ever question or concern. It was an incredible experience and I would give them all top marks. It was the best place and I would recommend them to others in a heart beat.

Top Notch Retirement Comunity

My Mom who has lived here for four years. Her apartment is lovely and she is well looked after. They have recently been renovating right now and the changes are elegant. It looks so nice like a 5!star hotel. But the community is so much more than that. The vibe here is respectful and thoughtful. [name removed] the executive director is approachable and hands on seeing to all aspects of life for the residents and staff. [name removed] walks his talk. Everyone who works here is patient and kind to the residents and families and each other.

MorningStar of Pasadena is an extremely nice facility, this was my top choice out of all of the places we toured - it is pretty pricey though. Unfortunately they did not have any availability at the time that we were looking.

A good fit

My mom loves it here at Morningstar Senior Living. For us, the location is very ideal. It is close to our home so it is easy to get to her and we can get there quickly if need be. It is surrounded by a lot of other places as well so if she wants to go out she can do so. They do offer independent and assisted living which is nice in case she needs that type of care down the road. Overall we would recommend this facility to others looking.

A really lovely place

I thought they were fantastic. It felt like a high class, white glove, 5 star hotel. The facility was beautiful. The staff were very responsive and caring. My mother-in-law needed a lot of extra, above and beyond care, and they did everything they could to help her. She ate the food every day and seemed pleased with it. I was very happy with them.

I enjoy living at The Regency Park Fair Oaks because it is such a pleasant place one might think they were on a vacation of sorts. Our tasty food is prepared with flair. Activities are imaginative and stimulating, happening both on site and away. Our private baths are tidied up every day with fresh linens because our staff keeps us spotless. The ratio of staff to residents is high so that we get our needs met sooner than other places I have known. This is a friendly, very caring kind of place. Anonymous Resident
