Review ofMorningStar Senior Living of Arvada
4.1

We chose MorningStar at the time because the facility itself is gorgeous and everyone seems happy and healthy. The atmosphere is top notch out of the ones we visited. I do think that the administrative staff could improve on their follow through with requests and with the families. Overall, I would definitely recommend them to others looking.

We chose MorningStar because of the kind of care that they provided for the cost, they have a chef that cooks all of their meals, and also they said they had a huge amount of activities available for residents. There are activities everyday, but not to the extent that they had said so they could use improvement on that. But she is receiving amazing care and we are really happy with that. They are great with communication as well. I would recommend to others looking.

I was able to have a physical tour here, and it was good. It was maybe my second choice, due to convenience. I didn’t have a lot of time to make a decision, just a matter of days. I liked the location, and it had the second best apartment set-up that I had seen. I liked ones that felt more homey, like a true apartment instead of a hotel room. The director was a little bit dismissive to some of my concerns though, so that kind of turned me off.
