My tour review

The community looked nice but it was not as nice as the other facility that we were considering. It looked clean and appealing and they were very informative.

People find that our warmth and hospitality make us special, so we would like to encourage you and your loved one to come back and spend some more time with us getting to know our residents, or even better consider a short-term "staycation." Please let us know if you have any additional questions, and best wishes as you explore senior living options.

Very disappointed with current management

The food looks nothing like the gourmet meal pictured above. There are rarely fresh fruit and vegetables. Canned vegetables and fruit cocktail are common Sometimes the chicken was so over-cooked and tough, it couldn't be cut, much less eaten. Recently the entire night staff was let go for incompetence. They seem to have a problem keeping staff in general. The staff passing out medications cannot even identify the various pills they are giving out. Staff answering a ring for assistance more than once opened the door and snarled "What do you want now?" They recently got a new head nurse who stormed unannounced into residents' rooms and confiscated anything that said "keep out of reach of children" by throwing dishwashing soap, hand lotion, cleaning supplies, hair spray, etc. into garbage bags. Needless to say, my family member felt like a robbery had taken place. Even worse, the doctor had written orders on file allowing self-administration of over-the-counter drugs and possession of cleaning supplies. The possessions were returned, but the emotional damage was done. Fitted sheets are returned wadded up instead of properly folded. Everything else comes back a wrinkled mess.

So far it's pretty good, except for the food...

So far it's been okay. They are very clean and very friendly. They lost their cook and the meals are really bad. When she walked in it was everything she wanted it to be. They are pet friendly and really worked with her to keep her dog. We liked that it was a pretty spacious apartment, and a lot of the ones we saw were kind of small, and sterile.

Not enough "active" activities

it was clean and the girl who showed us around was friendly enough, it was smaller and they didn't really have much in the way of activities. They mostly just take people for rides is what I understand and most of the residents we saw were in robes with walkers and sitting around watching tv. She's pretty active, she likes getting up and getting dressed and going out to do things so I didn't think there were enough activities for her.

I Was Really Impressed With Them

I really liked Morningside but my mom picked another place. I was really impressed with them and I though that would have been a good place for my mother.
