I visited this facility

If you love your love ones beware. The place is nice, I met some nice staff. They where dressed professional and very pleasant towards the staff. My tour guide Riley was awesome, I met 1 nurse and she was super friendly, pleasant and seems genuinely caring. I almost moved in my mother and called several times to speak with the ED, who never took the time to return none of my 5 messages for return call. I secretly visited again as a friend of a resident and waited 1 hr for the ED to get off her phone. Even standing outside her door I receive more acknowledgment. I was greeted by some friendly staff but watched a resident stood up and fall right in the lobby and the ED never came out her office. Absolutely terrible place to leave my mom. Be ware all.

This place is horrible. It looks very pretty from the outside, the lawn is well manicured, the downstairs sitting area looks great, there's water offered & some activities however when it comes to asking questions about your loved one there's no one in charge. They currently have the marketing director acting as the interim director. When talking to her, I Informed her that every time I visit, my loved ones room is a mess, smells like soiled clothing, food everywhere, I saw 2 baby roaches and I can never tell if they are assisting her with the bathroom or bathing b/cthere are always feces in her clothing. Last week my loved one was locked in the hallway in tears. She told me that they had locked her out of her $5k a month room. The staff member upstairs confirmed this saying that they had been given orders of 24 hr lockdown for the 2nd floor residents. When discussing this with the ID she said that we should have recieved a letter and a call from the past director but that she wasn't doing her job properly. She said that they should have activities on the 2nd floor like the rest of the floors but they were working on that so in the meantime, she would be locked out of her room unless we brought her downstairs. She also said that we would receive a notice of rent increase soon. So, we send our loved one to an upscale living facility to be locked down in a hallway w/ roaches and a 2:30 ratio of caretaker to senior w/no directives and multiple unanswered calls to corporate?

When we toured Morningside, the staff was enthusiastic, informed and caring. This was evident as we walked around the facility, and the residents were greeted by name, and seemed alert and oriented. When my mother moved in, she got involved in the variety of daily activities, received Physical Therapy, and began eating much better. We have seen how the staff's caring attitude promotes healthy residents and healthy attitudes. My mom is very happy with Morningside, and that makes me happy.

My mother is now in Morningside House of Laurel. It's very neat, very clean, the décor was excellent, the people were very friendly and outgoing, and I noticed that the people who were being cared for were very friendly and they looked alive; they weren’t slumped over or looking very sad or anything. They all seem to have a little pet with them. They have exercise classes, games like bingo and chess for those who are interested in that, card nights, casino night, crocheting for those who are interested in crocheting classes, current events discussion, Bible classes, and church services on Sundays. They have some planned trips to the Dollar Store or to the mall. They got a variety of things. They have some live entertainment, and they celebrate the holidays and the birthdays. I have not eaten there, but I've observed the dining room, and it's very clean and very fancy. They use linen napkins, and the residents are served by waiters. This is still new, and I haven't seen anything that's different, so I'm going to give it a 5 right now.

I moved my mother to a place called Morningside House of Laurel. Everything is going well. My mother has dementia, and they are managing her health and so forth. They are taking care of her physically, and they are encouraging her to participate in activities. I am confident that she is safe and that she is being cared for. The staff seems to be very dedicated. She is in the assisted living facility, and she is in a private room. It is a large studio apartment with a bed, a place for a living room, and a big bathroom with a safe shower, and she has no kitchen because she is really not safe with a stove. For someone with moderate dementia who is managing to take care of herself in some ways and not in other ways, it is quite suitable. They had a nature talk the other day that she actually enjoys. They do bingo, and they have an activities director who comes in and evaluates her. They started her with physical therapy. They also have current events forum and a walkers club. The food is quite good, and the grounds are lovely. They have a large area outside that is safe that they can wander off, but it doesn't seems to be fenced in. If she wants to go outside, she can go outside and walk around. She has a nice view out of her window of trees and grass. They have a sun porch where there is a fireplace. It is an area like an enclosed patio. The room has many windows that she can sit and watch the snow fall. I chose them as being the best for my mom and for her particular needs.

I researched many Assisted Living facilities and by far Morningside House impressed me the most. I was especially impressed with Amanda Owens. She is very knowledgeable about Morningside House and besides that she is extremely caring about everyone that resides in this facility. My cousin will be residing there as soon as he gets out of the Rehab Facility in Bowie, MD. Overall I believe I made the right decision in picking Morningside House the moment you walk into this facility the front desk person - her name is Renee - is very friendly and nice and the Administrator Brandon Queen is exceptional to work with. Thank you for this opportunity to express my views regarding Morningside House.

Morningside House of Laurel was nice and clean. It was just big and expensive, too. I think my mom would be better in a smaller place. They had a big cafeteria, and it looked nice. The room that my mom would have been in looked very nice, but she couldn't afford that. Then there was one she would have to share with somebody else, and that was just a regular-sized room. I just met one woman who was trying to sell the room; she was nice and helpful.
