Do you have a loved one who needs a little assistance on a daily basis but you have shied away from senior living as you thought it was too expensive? MorningStar at Arrowhead invites you to take a more in-depth look at assisted living and to consider all of the advantages and benefits it offers to residents.
It may be you have heard about the monthly cost of assisted living from friends or acquaintances and thought it was more than you or your parent could handle. While that may be true, have you factored in the real costs of a community such as MorningStar at Arrowhead as compared to mom or dad living in their own home? Keep in mind that MorningStar’s monthly suite rental includes the resident’s meals along with a whole range of services and amenities such as scheduled transportation, housekeeping, and laundry services.
If your parent is still maintaining a home, their expenses now include property taxes, home insurance, utilities, home maintenance and repairs. Also you may have the costs of home care providers coming in to help your parent as well as paying for someone to take them to doctor appointments, run errands and buy groceries. They may even need someone to prepare meals for them. This doesn’t even include the costs of retrofitting a home to accommodate your parent’s lack of mobility such as the need to provide a ramp to their home and widening doors and hallways to accommodate a wheelchair.
At MorningStar the monthly suite rental also includes a 24-hour care staff and an emergency call service along with a range of wellness and leisure activities, health monitoring, and much more. Our residents are treated to three daily meals and snacks prepared by our Executive Chef and designed to be tasty as well as nutritional. Please see our website to learn more about our exceptional community.
MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care at Arrowhead represents the best in senior living with a distinct mission statement - “to honor, to serve, to invest.” Our foundation is built on honoring God, valuing all seniors and selecting staff with a felt calling to serve. We are dedicated to providing a true home for residents amidst a beautiful, serene setting and invite you to schedule a visit to experience one of the area’s finest senior living communities.
While MorningStar at Arrowhead is proud to provide high-quality assisted living and memory care for seniors, we also provide our families with some lesser known services. One example is our Companion Living option that is designed for two unrelated people of the same sex to share an assisted living or memory care suite.
This is an ideal solution for those wishing to share expenses as the rent of the suite is split between the two residents as well as a way to build a lasting friendship. Even if you do not have someone in mind to share a suite, we will help you find a roommate and go to great lengths to match you with an individual who has common interests and a similar background.
A roommate can also help to ease your transition to senior living. You and your roommate can look out for one another, and as you are familiar with each another’s habits and personalities, may be the first person to notice changes in health and abilities. Shared lives can help to boost health through improved sleeping patterns and an increased appetite. When you take advantage of companion living, you are still offered all of the personalized care and first-class amenities extended to our other residents.
We also feel privileged to have veterans as part of our community and when we hear of vets who are interested in our community, we are pleased to direct them to the local resources that can expertly handle their application process for “Aid & Attendance.” This is monthly benefit payments extended through the V.A. to certain wartime Veterans (and their survivors) with financial need and physician orders for regular assistance with the activities of daily living.
Please visit our website to learn more about these and our other programs designed to serve our seniors. Offering both assisted living and memory care, we are committed to giving our residents a lifestyle of comfort, wellness and community.

If you are starting to search for senior living, it is recommended that you take a tour of the community. While all the beautiful pictures online or in a brochure can make a community look great, firsthand impressions go a long way toward getting a real feel of the place.
Before your visit, make sure the senior living facilities you are interested in offer the options you want – independent living and/or assisted living. If a family member needs memory care, is there a separate wing devoted to caring for those with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases.
If you are looking for assisted living, please keep in mind it is important that you get it right the first time as it is hard on your loved one to get settled somewhere and then decide it is not a good fit. During your tour, A Place for Mom, the largest assisted living referral service, recommends that you start evaluating the place from the moment you walk through the door. Ask yourself, does it look clean and orderly as well as smell fresh? Inquire about housekeeping services and how often private suites are cleaned, the costs involved, general maintenance of the community, and security.
If you can, come during an activity so you can join in the fun. This will give you a good idea of the staff’s friendliness around the residents. Also arrange to eat lunch at the place as it will not only provide you with a firsthand taste of the food but allow you to leisurely enjoy time with other residents.
At MorningStar of Billings, the wellbeing and comfort of our residents is our highest priority. As one of the top-rated senior living facilities in Billings, we offer independent and assisted living. In addition Reflections Neighborhood is our memory care facility and is staffed by compassionate, loving dementia care specialist. Visit our website to conveniently schedule a tour or give us a call. We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Often families are caught unaware when an aging parent has a fall or another event that immediately indicates they need more assistance in their daily life. You many feel like a neglectful son or daughter for not noticing the changes happening before your eyes, but many seniors routinely deny they need help as they fear losing their independence. However getting the proper care can actually help make them feel more independent as they know they can live their life without worry and help is available when they need it.
Experts cite several common signs that may indicate your parent needs more assistance including changes in the way they live. For incidence if your mom was always a good housekeeper, and now her home is looking un-kept, or your dad who always took pride in his appearance, now looks as if he is not bathing regularly. Signifcant weight loss may also mean a senior is not eating well and/or having trouble preparing meals.
Watch for signs your parent is having trouble walking or appears unsteady and is having difficulty getting up from a seated position. Other changes are signs of confusion or uncertainty performing familiar tasks. A dangerous side effect of poor memory can be seniors forgetting to take medications or not following their doctor’s care plan. Errands can also be difficult to do as many seniors are uncomfortable driving and many stop driving altogether.
While assisted living was a relatively new concept when it first began in the early 1980s, today it is the fastest growing care option for seniors who are able to live independently but require a little assistance. At MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care at Arrowhead, we provide assistance with “activities of daily living” (ADLs) such as: bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and more. Our beautiful community, located on the north side of Glendale AZ, offers 60 private assisted living suites and 25 suites in our Reflections Neighborhood devoted to the individualized care of those with memory impairment.

Seniors often end up feeling confused about whether independent living or assisted living is their best senior living option. Experts say the most important thing is to base your decision on is how well you manage your daily personal care activities on your own.
If you need help with things like meal preparations, personal hygiene, managing medications, and household chores, assisted living is probably your best bet. However if you are an active senior who is handling these tasks on your own but would like convenient access to hospitality services such as dining, wellness programs and activities, housekeeping, and companionship, independent living is perfect for you.
Moreover for seniors who still feel comfortable managing their own personal care for now but worry things could change in the future, communities such as MorningStar of Billing are the answer. Along with offering 32 free-standing cottages and 72 bright suites for independent living, we also have 70 suites for assisted living and 36 secure suites for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments. If down the road, you feel you need more assistance than our independent living offers, you will have first priority to one of our assisted living or memory care suites.
MorningStar of Billings is proud to be considered one of the top senior living facilities in the greater Billings’ area. In addition our memory care facility is staffed by dementia care specialists who have a deep understanding of the disease.

MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care at Arrowhead proudly welcomes veterans to our community. Throughout all of MorningStar’s communities, we are privileged to have veterans from all five branches of military service call us home.
Whenever we hear that veterans or families of vets are interested in our community, we are pleased to direct them to local resources that can help to ease and quicken the application process for “Aid & Attendance”. This is a monthly benefit payment allocated by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to certain wartime veterans and their survivors who qualify for financial need and have a doctor’s order for regular assistance with daily living activities.
Additional qualifications for the vets include having served at least 90 days of active duty, of which at least one day was spent serving during a period of a foreign war. Also, the vet must not have been dishonorably discharged. The Aid & Attendance benefit does not require the vet to have served overseas, seen combat or retired from the military. For surviving spouses to be eligible for the benefit, they must have been married to the vet at the time of their death and never remarried.

Just as MorningStar at Arrowhead encourages anyone interested in our community to schedule a tour, so do most other assisted living communities. This is because you cannot really get an idea of what a community looks like or feels like without seeing it in person.
In addition to wanting your loved one to be happy in their new “home,” your priorities most likely include finding a community that is well run, clean, and within your price range. Experts recommend your first step should be to do some research over the Internet and on the phone. Narrowing down your choices includes considering things such as how convenient will it be for the family to visit and is it located close to a pharmacy, medical facilities and shopping. Furthermore, find out if the community is accepting new residents, and if not, you may want to go on their waiting list.
Senior support network Caring.com has a great checklist (it is even printable) of tips to consider for when touring an assisted living community. To start with, they say you should always listen to your gut instincts. From the moment you walk through the door, do you get a good feeling? Regardless of how beautifully decorated, does it feel welcoming and have a home-like atmosphere? If they offer the service, eat lunch with the residents as it will help to give you a more complete picture of the community.

She ends her note by saying, “The quality of her life has improved dramatically. She’s made lots of friends, and is much more active than she was before. I highly recommend MorningStar.”
