Morningstar’s new Senior Living facility centers on better accommodating residents through an active lifestyle and quality living space. This is Morningstar’s first ground-up community located in, Glendale, Arizona. The 67,000 square foot campus provides several care options and amenities for both guests and visitors.
Working within the entitled community, the assisted living and memory care program increased the number of units to 60 private assisted living spaces and 25 memory care units. The environment was also re-configured to expand the size of each unit for more spacious living quarters.
Common areas were added indoors and outdoors to encourage guests to gather and socialize throughout the campus. With secured access to the memory garden and courtyards for the assisted living, the campus offers a variety of secure spaces to enjoy the natural surroundings and engage in outdoor activities.
To improve the flow of activities and programming, the back-of-house operations were re-developed. By creating dedicated access to the operational spaces, the resident community areas experience less disruption and provide better social experiences for residents. Amenities include multiple dining areas, a bistro, theater, chapel, library, fitness room, spa, patio, and garden areas.
