My parents are living at Morningside, moving there after my Mom's heart condition and its side effects became too much for them to handle in an independent living situation. Teresa, the director, has been amazingly wonderful in helping them adjust to their new situation and was instrumental in getting their long term care insurance to pay for Mom's care at Morningside. She assisted my Dad, who is partially deaf, proud and stubborn, with the red tape and the tortuous application process. I am not sure what we would have done without her assistance with the forms, paperwork, and knowledge of the process. In short, I cannot say enough good things about Teresa. She has been supportive of my parents and the rest of our family since they moved in earlier this year. She is caring and persistent. She has terrific people skills, and even has won over my Dad, which is not an easy feat.

My father has been a resident for 2 ½ years. He moved in when my mom’s health and his dementia issues were too difficult for them to live at home. Shortly after, my mother passed away. My criteria to move them to Morningside was that I wanted her to be able to live her remaining days and pass away in the room that we moved her to. I did not want to move her from one room to the next because her level of care was increasing. My dad has been living there for over two years without my mom. He has dementia and needs quite a bit of attending to as well. The Five Star experience is in the individual staff members who go above their job title. Morningside has qualified employees, but there are those who reach out to my dad. He is the last of his generation. I visit when I can, but there are no relatives or friends visiting him. The employees have become his extended family. Those who take the extra minute to see that he is clean, comfortable and still leave him with his dignity are special. Debbie, the newly hired LPN has compassion for the residents which shows in her care and concern. Staff members such as Shirley, Janice, Kay, Melody, and many others who have assisted my father have all demonstrated a level of care which shows in their personal attentiveness to his needs.
Are you a resident of Morningside of Athens or a family member of one? We'd love to hear your thoughts about the community!
