A Place for Mom recommended this facility. It is the facility we ended up going with. We felt it was a good fit for our family members needs.

We toured Morningside. I liked it. It was clean and the staff was friendly. I can't really say much about the value or the care, since it was just an initial tour.
Room for Improvementreviewed on: 07/12/2018 by Anonymous
Although called a 5 Star Community, this facility is average. The biggest complaint we have is the food service. It is poor. The food is overcooked and frequently they are out of things on the menu. For the price the residents pay, the food should be at least as good as the local K&W. It's not even close. Residents have voiced concerns through the proper channels for at least 4 years and there is no improvement. Maintenance is subpar. Stairwells aren't swept, carpets aren't vacuumed adequately, bathroom floors are rarely mopped. The activities director is wonderful and many of the caregivers are compassionate. However, turnover is frequent and new staff have little training. With improved food service and maintenance this facility could be a wonderful asset to the city.

This was a nice facility and the staff was very helpful and forthcoming. I don't think that this is a proper fit for my father just because he functions at a higher level and needs a more mentally stimulating environment.
Very happy mother and daughterreviewed on: 01/04/2015 by D. Beck
My mother has been here for almost 3 years and is very happy. The staff is very attentive and patient. Mom raves about the food and loves the fact that she "orders from a menu." The staff is great about keeping me informed about any issues with Mom. Since her memory is so bad, I have to call them whenever I am going to come get her (she will either get dressed and wait for me for hours or forget altogether). They have her ready for me when I come. Mom will probably have to move to the Memory Care Unit soon, so they are integrating her into their activities, so she will feel comfortable with the staff and the residents when the time comes. They are very concerned with preserving her dignity.
