Our Experience
My mother is a musician, in the early mid stages of dementia. Playing the piano is an essential part of her therapy to maintain the memory that she still has. It is so heartwarming to hear her tell us on the phone when different staff members have asked her to play the piano. "They tell me how uplifting it is to hear me play." We all want a place where our loved ones will be cared for. But Morning Star Village has been a place where mom feels loved. And that can make all the difference in the world. No, that does make all the difference in the world. Thank you, Morning Star Village.

Mother resides at MSV
Morning Star provides a safe, caring environment that includes all of the comforts of home combined with the care that she needs being in her [age removed]! There are always activities that she can participate in as well as field trips and transportation to her appointments. The social activities keep her active and provide her an avenue to interact with individuals. Being able to give her input on food service, activities, etc. gives her a sense of being involved in her "home".

My parents love it!
My parents moved into Morning Star Village in 2018. 3 months later my dad passed away unexpectedly but my mom decided to stay, even though she was independent, because she had made new friends & loved being able to socialize & do activities! 4 years later she is still at Morning Star & thriving! She loves the food, the activities & the staff are amazing! Our family couldn't be happier with Morning Star Village!

I came to MorningStar Village after I fell at home and was very weak; having difficulty eating because loss of appetite. I was determined to get better and gain strength. With the compassionate, caring care and assistance that I received from their staff, I recovered. I have made my wonderful lasting friendships with many residents and staff. The food is great. Everyone is so friendly and kind.

Wonderful Experience
I was so impressed with Morning Star Village. My mom was there for 10 months. She had a wonderful experience. They are a very caring staff. Morning Star is locally owned. It was very neat and clean. They find out about each resident's personality and they place them with others that have similar interests. My mom was very happy there.

Helpful staff
While looking into a few options for my love one, I found that this property is a little bit higher than the place I actually moved forward with. Also they didn’t have enough staffing for what she needs medically. However, my staff interaction with them was good. They are very helpful, just unfortunately was not a good fit.

about Morning Star Village

Morning Star Village offers Studio, 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Morning Star Village 9.4 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
