Assisted Living Reviews for Morningside House of Laurel

January 28, 2015

I am a friend or relative of a resident

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.
