  • Don't believe their add on food

    If you don't care what the food looks like, taste or texture. Morning Star will be great. But if you read their ad an believe you are getting chief quality meals you are mistaken. If you have a person in the alzheimer's unit who has to go on either mechanical soft or puree do not believe the ad. They only put that ad out for families to read so families think that they have really great service and meals for their patients. Families are led to believe their loved ones will get quality food . Even in the main dinning most food is just frozen stuff like you find at Costco nothing Cheifs make from scratch .When a family tries to get them to do what the ad says a fight that will never end happens. I tried to post pictures here but couldn't.

  • A big community for care.

    I toured this community for my mom.They had the great staff to answer my questions on the care. They did not feel comfortable with my mom being a diabetic. The menu was nice and the variety of activities might have been helpful. This community was nice, but more than what I wanted due to being too big. I would suggest that families tour this community for care of a loved one.
