Happy seniors at Morning Star Village Assisted Living

What is Assisted Living?

The decision to move to an assisted living community can be a difficult one. Whether you are looking for yourself or for a loved one, it’s important to understand the differences between the various types of senior care communities in your area. At an assisted living community, residents get help with daily activities (ADLs) and tasks while still living independent lives. Assisted Living is an alternative to in-home, Independent Living or Nursing Home care, which can be more expensive and provide a different level of care. 

Thanks to our vibrant residents, quality care, and the independent lifestyle we provide, Morning Star Village helps seniors get the most out of their retirement years.

Benefits of Assisted Living at Morning Star Village

The main benefit of assisted living is the fact that the seniors are able to remain independent while still having necessary care nearby. Assisted living offers a level of care that is perfect for seniors who do not need the full-time attention of a nursing home or hospital, but still need assistance with small things like meals, transportation, medication management and basic daily activities.

Other benefits include:

  • Personalized Care: Professional caregivers (like the ones at our facility) will ensure that you or your loved one receives the support that they need completing the activities of daily life (or ADLs).
  • Community Living: Assisted living offers seniors the opportunity to socialize daily with others and attend various scheduled events (like in-house crafts or outings).
  • Less Responsibility: Daily routines can become difficult as time goes, our staff diligently maintains the facility to the highest standards.
  • Quicker Emergency Response: In addition to adding standard safety features throughout the facility (like shower handles and ramps), our round-the-clock staff is always ready to respond to emergencies.
