Reviews of Morningside House of Ellicott City
Nice size rooms; the 1 bedroom includes a small kitchenette (fridges have large enough freezers for ice cream). Friendly staff & nice selection of activities.
The facility is impeccable with much attention paid to the different ways in which care may be provided to the elderly. The tour and the explanation of all elements of the facility were both detailed exhaustively....
- Caring Service
Great and caring staff in the Memory Care unit. At times, I wish there was one more aide in the Memory Care unit.
