Morningside of Raleigh
4.2

I was fortunate to find a memory care unit that both my parents could move to and stay together. The care my parents are getting is wonderful and the staff is always very helpful when I have a question. My parents haven't really gotten in to the activities yet but they have only been there for 2 months. I no longer need to worry if they are safe or need something because I feel Morningside is taking good care of them. The staff checks on them frequently and is very attentive to their needs concerning personal hygiene. Medication management has been flawless. Questions are answered easily by checking excellent records kept on chart. I have been very happy so far.

My parents loved it so much they are moving here on a permanent basis. It's a smaller community than others we had looked at but very nice. The sales person was so helpful and kind when needed he will help other others departments or residents when in need. The staff overall is nice and friendly. They really liked the food . We would recommend this community to anyone.

I would tell others that the community is very kind, friendly, and considerate of the residents and their families. The staff are excellent to work with if the family has any questions or concerns. Bathing, dressing, emotional support, and Medication Management are some of the care offered to my loved one by the community. Laundry, linen changes, housekeeping, all the meals, and the room is included in the monthly fee. My loved one never complains about the meals. Eggs, bacon, pizza, and sandwiches are some of the items served to the residents. Painting, games, noodle balloonball, fill in the blank activities, music, finger nail painting, and more are some of the activities offered to the residents.
