My father is in Morningside of Gastonia. What I like best is that he has a place to live, that he is safe, and that he has help when he needs help. I appreciate them checking on him and being just mindful of his health. He contracted COVID and had to go to the hospital at one point, and they were very quick to let us know. I talk to him every day and all I have to do if I have a question or concern is call and they'll connect me with the nurses' station or with the person that I need to speak with. I just feel very comfortable with the level of care and the attentiveness that he has there. They're kind to him. They know him by name. My dad is legally blind and has some dementia, and he often needs help maybe with things like even turning his television on, and all he has to do is ask someone to help him, and they will come in and help him. The building is clean. It is very comfortable. When you go in, they have chairs at the front. They have bulletin boards and everyone's door has a decoration on it for holidays and things. It is a lovely facility. The dining room is like a nice dining room at someone's home with smaller tables. It can sit four people at a table. They keep it clean and nice for the residents. They have bingo regularly. They do monthly birthday parties for the residents that have birthdays in each month. They have special guests coming in. Sometimes they'll have someone come in and play the piano and different things like that. They keep them busy. They go on outings to restaurants and local baseball games. It has a welcoming, friendly, and comfortable atmosphere.

Morningside of Gastonia was very nice and more modern. We didn't get to see the rooms, except the door was cracked a little bit. They didn't have a vacant room to show us or anything. So, we didn't see anything. We just saw the hall and where the dining room was, which was empty, but it was very nice. We saw three women working a puzzle. The girl who took us around was the coordinator. She was younger and was very friendly, nice, and very knowledgeable. She stayed on the right track of the subject. We were going to their office and there were women playing bridge there so she went to a smaller office and it was fine. We saw the receptionist as we went in. She seemed to be doing a good job. She got us to the right person. I had wanted to see my friend there and I had mentioned it and so she took us and said: "It'd be no problem." My friend was on the second floor and she was sitting with 2 or 3 other women and I was pleased that I got to see her.

Provider Response

My mother was at Morningside of Gastonia. It was very clean and well appointed. It's a really great place. It's well-maintained. All of the administrative staff there were very wonderful to work with. The care staff were just top notch. The food was very good. Their activities director was very good and provided all kinds of activities for the residents there, some of them were in-house, some of them were field trips to go shopping, out to eat, or to the movies. There were lots of activities for them to participate in.

Provider Response

My mom is now at Morningside of Gastonia. We're very, very happy there. We like the people in the office. One lady has been there for 14 years, and another lady has been there for 17. They're very friendly, and they know what they're doing. They have nurses at the end of every hallway. They have people that work in the cafeteria only, instead of everybody from the whole building coming in to run and help try to serve food. We had to downsize to a smaller room because that's all they had, but my mom is very, very happy there. They have a lot of very caring people, and they've got their act together. My mom has been there for about a month now. They have an activity director. They have someone that comes in that either sings or plays guitar. They watch television together in the gathering room at night. They watch the news and then Jeopardy! They engage them to be out of the room. Although my mom has not been feeling well and she has not been able to take advantage of those lately. But when I was leaving there the other day, there was a guy in the activity room playing guitar and singing. Their activity director knows what she's doing. She has been there for four or five years, and she's very good. I haven't one negative thing to say about them just yet. They have someone at the desk from 8:00 in the morning to 8:00 at night to let you in and greet you. I know what's going on there because I'm there every day. It's just about 5 minutes from my house. They do my mom's laundry for her. Since she has been out of the hospital, they've been bringing her meals to her because she doesn't feel well enough to go downstairs. They have a very nice little cafeteria. They have a menu, and there's no assigned seating. They have a range of times like breakfast is from 6:30 to 9:00, and lunch is from 12:00 to 1:30. You can go whenever you feel like going, and you don't have to go at a certain time. My mom calls me every day to tell me how good the food is. She's very, very happy with that. My mom got a new room that had just been updated with new hardwood floors, new granite countertops, and a new shower. Everything in her room is completely new. As the previous person moves out, they're updating, so eventually, the whole building will be updated. It's very clean, too.

Provider Response

My parents moved into Morningside of Gastonia last December. I think it's very nice, the decor, the receptionist, and everyone is very friendly, asking if you need help, locating your loved one, or whatever the case. So, it's a welcoming place. The service is more than adequate. They don't seem to mind doing the things that they need to do and are glad to help. So we're very pleased with that. They have singing. They play games such as tic tac toe and Chinese checkers, and several other things that my parents used to play as kids. So, they enjoy those things. They seem to enjoy the food very well.

Provider Response

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback Robert. It is wonderful to hear you describe the community as such a welcoming place and the team always going above and beyond to help out. We're glad to read that your parents have been enjoying the food prepared by our amazing dining services team as well as our many programs. We're honored your family chose Morningside and glad your parents now call this their home.

They do not care about the resident they only care about what their staff doesn't have to do. Family came into facility to dad in the bed in a white tank top and adult diaper (that's all) no dignity whatsoever! He hadn't been fed yet because they said they "didn't have time". Poor attitudes from the staff and the ED. Constantly being lied to! Will not ever recommend this place to anyone. I will definitely warn others (they are not staffed correctly in Memory care...maybe on paper they are but not physically!)

Morningside of Gastonia was lovely. I didn't have any complaints while we were there. The rooms were absolutely lovely. You can decorate them however you want to. The showers were enormous. I really liked the fact that you could decorate; they didn’t care how many holes you put in the wall, so it felt like a collage dorm. She showed us several rooms, and it was pretty personal. It was pretty coo,l but I don’t think my father can do it. The dining room was very nice, and the grounds were lovely with a big courtyard and a grill outside to barbecue. The food looked fine.

I visited Morningside of Gastonia. The community was clean, and the staff was nice, but it was out of my price range. Everything seemed fine. I would choose it if I could afford it.

Morningside of Gastonia was a very nice community. They informed us they’re just assisted living people, and not skilled nursing care. The lady said they were going to check my sister-in-law out and see if she fell into the skilled nursing care category and if so, they could not help her. She called back probably 30 minutes ago and said they had checked her out, and she was in fact in need of skilled nursing and they were sorry they could not accommodate her. It was a very nice facility with about 92 private rooms. We were impressed with the facility and sorry that we couldn’t fit in. The staff seemed to be very accommodating and very friendly.

I liked everything about Morningside. It’s very pleasant and beautifully decorated; it does not smell like a hospital. They had a really nice facility. The only issue was that we could not afford to have my mother-in-law living there on our budget. We were interested in something that took Medicaid, and they did not.

We visited Morningside of Gastonia. We thought the staff was very friendly, supportive, and nice. It turned out my mother knew a couple of people that were in that facility. I thought it was a favorable experience. They had a daily schedule for different types of activities for the residents in their common area, whether it was playing games or having entertainment coming in from the outside like singing group or church groups. It was a professional organization that seemed to be attending to the needs of their residents. It was clean and well maintained.

Morningside has very professional people. I talked to the residents there, and they are quite happy. I also interacted with a couple of the residents that are further into their dementia stages more like my dad is, and you could tell. If you go to some places, you can tell that they are distressed and not happy at all. These folks seem fine, and it was like they haven't suffered from dementia. They seem basically very happy. It is small and professional, and I would give them a high rating.

The staff at Morningside of Gastonia is very helpful and very friendly. Most of them are very long-term. Some of the residents and the families that I've met have been there a while since they are very pleased with the care. The facility seems to be clean and well taken care of.

I feel that Morningside of Gastonia should be shut down completely. The facility fools you with all the fancy rooms and fake smiles from the staff. My aunt was there only 4 days and on the 5th day they let her fall out of a 2nd floor window. They have no alarms on the windows. And after the incident happened the director told me that this was not the first time that another resident before my aunt tried to crawl out a window but he was fortunate enough that a nurse happened to be walking by. So that shows me they knew the windows were a problem but did nothing to fix it and the end result was my aunt falling to her death. I feel no facility that cares for residents with memory problems should have them on the 2nd floor . Why are their alarms on the doors but no alarms on the windows. My aunt was not the only one that wondered around and wanted to go home, most of the residence want to go home. My aunt had dementia and that means she was capable of knowing where she was at all she knew was that it wasn't home. I put my trust in the staff to take care of her but they were not capable. After the incident it took the staff over a hour to tell me what happened and then it was not the truth. No apologies, no nothing. Pure disrespect to my family. They had no consideration for myself nor my family. So I strongly recommend if you want your loved one to be safe and have the best care DO NOT EVER put any of your loved ones in Morningside of Gastonia. This facility does not even deserve one star.

My mother has been at Morningside for almost 2 years and she loves it. The place is kept clean and the staff is very attentive. Mom loves the fact that she can order her meals from a menu and the food is good. She loves going on the outings to restaurants, parks, stores, etc. I like that the staff always keeps me informed on what is going on with my mom and they always respond to any requests or concerns of mine. Mom's room has a door that goes out to the interior courtyard, where there are rockers and tables with benches. I would not hesitate to recommend Morningside for your loved ones.

I thought morning side was a good match for my aunt. The interior was fine and comfortable. They have a secured courtyard where my aunt could walk the dog. The dog wouldn't be able to escape the premises because if something like that happened to her dog, it would be a big problem for my aunt. There was a person that had followed up with me, we do communicate on a regular basis and I liked that. They had activities, but I don't know much about them.

Morningside of Gastonia is considered a 5-star facility. So we felt very comfortable when we left them our relative because we felt that it was a good place. She was an Alzheimer's patient but very mobile. However, she was confused and in complete denial when she moved in. She was looking to get out to get back home. She went in on a Wednesday and was able to get out of the 2nd-story window and fell to her death on a Sunday. When she fell, although it's been changed now, the first report said it was a suicide. She wasn't trying to kill herself. She was trying to go home. I think since then they tried to improve on some things. But they have prior knowledge that there were problems and issues with windows before. It was a tragic thing and should not have happened. And I understand as humans, we all make mistakes sometimes. But Alzheimer's patients don't know what they're doing. And they have a lot strength that we don't know they have. I felt bad for the staff. I'm sure nobody wanted it to happen. But the window issue should have been prevented.

When my aunt Nellie went to a Morningside Assited Living facility in Gastonia, North Carolina, I didn't know quite what to expect. This was one of my first experiences visiting an assisted-living facility and I my mind had conjured visions of a place that was more medically focused than homey. Imagine my surprise when I arrived! My aunt was being cared for in a room that was very much like a room you would find in her home. They allowed her to bring her own bed and other items of furniture in order to make the room as familiar as possible for her. One day while I was visiting, a staff member arrived to remind my aunt that it was time for Bingo. Well, my aunt loves Bingo so the next thing you know the staff member is wheeling her towards a common area. I played the game with her for a little while, noticing the friendliness of the staff. After that, my aunt and I ate dinner together in the dining room. It was good food, a fact that she'd let me know once or twice prior to my visit.

I would give Morningside 5 stars but they are too expensive so it's just 4 stars for me. The admin staff are helpful and welcoming. The facility itself looks very warm and pleasant but, again, like I said, it's too expensive for me. I just went there and checked if they accept medicare or medicaid but unfortunately it's not covered. I didn't get to eat there and try the food because I just visited the facility really quick.

Most of the staff is excellent. They all are very kind and helpful to my grandmother, especially through this tough time, and always took excellent care of my grandfather. They worked with my parents to make sure they had everything they needed and made sure that they were as comfortable as possible. The facilities themselves are great, everything is kept spotless and I have never seen anything in a state of disrepair. The food is quite good, and the service in all areas of the facility is great. It really is as if they are living with family. Though the place has been great, there is always room for improvement. The activities that they participate in could use improvement. Sometimes they are put together very haphazardly and end up to be a less than stellar experience. For instance, the planning of their bingo events tends to always have some hang up, such as missing equipment or even a missing bingo caller. As far as I know, this has been really the only major problem with them living there. Otherwise it has been a very good place for them to live.
