MorningStar at Bear Creek’s philosophy and approach to memory care includes our guiding principle that: whatever the extent of the memory loss, whatever the form of dementia, a person’s essence remains. We feel it our calling as well as our privilege to find ways to connect with and nurture that essence.
Our individualized care starts by meeting with the senior and their family members to learn all we can about the person’s background including their vocation, talents and preferences. Taking this information, we put together a daily routine that will be used to stimulate or calm the resident in response to their mood or the surrounding circumstances. Throughout the senior’s stay with us, we also engage the family members as we know our services are as much for them as for the residing senior.
MorningStar’s memory care provides an atmosphere of safety and well-being, while at the same time, encourages and supports choice and independence whenever possible. Our residents participate in daily recreational and purposeful activities that include life skills, art, music, and exercise and are included in special events and scheduled outings.
Our community is designed to permit residents the freedom to move about in spacious surroundings that fully accommodates the disposition and behavior of those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our extensive services include around-the-clock care, daily health monitoring, a licensed nurse and a caring and devoted staff.
MorningStar at Bear Creek is proud to have earned the “Recognized Leaders in Dementia Care.” designation from the Alzheimer’s Association. Colorado is the only Alzheimer’s Association chapter in the country offering this unique program. To be so designated, a senior living community is required to enroll 75% of its staff in an eight-hour training course that encompasses brain pathology, communication techniques, and methods of lessening agitation with non-pharmaceuticals.
