At Morning Star Village, we would like to help in answering any questions you may have about us or assisted living. If you don’t happen to see your question below, please feel free to contact us and ask us your questions.
Here are a few of the more frequently asked questions:
Q: What is Assisted Living?
A: Assisted living facilities were created to assist people with their activities of daily living in an environment that allows them to live as independently as possible for as long as possible. Assisted living bridges the gap between one’s home or apartment and a nursing home. It allows people to live independently with the convenience of having licensed nursing staff available 24 hours a day if needed. Personalized service plans are created to address the specific care needs of each resident and are updated as their individual needs or conditions change over time.
Q: What is the difference between Assisted Living and a Nursing Home?
A: Assisted living facilities assist seniors who have the ability to care for themselves except for a few activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing or managing their medications. Nursing homes provide 24-hour care to those seniors who have acute medical conditions and are unable to care for themselves.
Q: Does Morning Star Village require you to purchase your apartment?
A: No. All apartments are rented at Morning Star Village. There is no long-term contract to be signed. A small deposit is required to reserve an apartment or be added to our waiting list.
Q: Does Morning Star Village offer short-term respite stays?
A: Morning Star Village does offer respite stays, subject to apartment availability.
Q: Are Morning Star Village apartments furnished?
