Assisted Living Reviews for Morningside House of Ellicott City

I visited this facility

Morningside House of Ellicott City was recommended to us by a friend. It presented very well. The staff was absolutely very helpful. The rooms were spacious. The dining room was well appointed, well laid out, neat, clean, and the table settings were beautiful. They had excellent activities; they had a variety of activities that get people outdoors. The financials, the expense, it was the best of all the communities.

I am/was a resident of this facility

We had stayed at Morningside House. We had two big rooms there. The work attitude of the staff was fine. It was just that they didn't had a clue on various situation.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I do not live at this facility personally, however a very close relative of mine does, and she is extremely happy here. She has been there for several months now, and the nursing staff and faculty has the made transition very easy for the whole family. The surrounding town is beautiful, as is the building itself. I was impressed with the quality of the apartments. The family member that lives here always speaks very highly of the friendly staff, and while I wish she didn't have to live in a nursing home, it's for the best, and I don't think there's a better place around than Morningside. The food is great, they provide transportation for their clients when necessary, and they also provide many activities for their clients to get involved in. The most important thing for me is that they always have a nursing team on call in case of emergencies, and that makes the whole family feel at ease. I really do love this facility.

Morningside House in Ellicott City caters to those who need extra help in the activities of daily living, or those who are in the beginning or advanced stages of dementia. As the nephew of an aunt who has lived there for the last two years, I can attest that this is a very pleasant place for someone who needs help with dressing, bathing and medication management. Unlike nursing homes, Morningside is set up as a small apartment complex with individual apartments that can be furnished and decorated based on the occupant's tastes. So all of the residents living at Morningside can outfit their rooms with their own furniture and treasures.This really is my aunt's home. She has the best care from the nursing staff, all of whom care deeply about her and the rest of the residents. My aunt lives in a studio apartment, which is a large room with its own bathroom. There are also one-bedroom units and companion suites. At some point, my aunt may consider a companion suite, since the rent is a little cheaper if you share it with someone else.My aunt likes to play bingo, and that is one of the activities they have at Morningside several times a week. She also enjoys having her hair done at the salon, and asks for ice cream every night at dinner. Most importantly, her physical and medical needs are taken care of by the staff. When she first came there, it was a big adjustment, but now she can't imagine living anywhere else.My aunt looks forward to the bus trips. One afternoon they drove to Little Italy in Baltimore and had lunch at one of the restaurants. On another trip, they visited the local dinner theater during one of their dress rehearsals and were able to enjoy the show "for free" before it opened.Morningside has respite care available and also welcomes Hospice, in the event of a serious or terminal illness. It is a wonderful place to live out your golden days and I am happy that my aunt has found a place that brings her peace, good health and happiness. For those considering Morningside, keep in mind that it is in a very good area, close to the hospital and medical complexes in nearby Columbia, Maryland. It is also less than a half-hour from Baltimore and an hour from Washington, D.C.
