I worked for Morningside of Dalton, starting in 2002 until 2004 and absolutely loved every bit of it! I enjoyed interacting with many of the residents as well as the staff. I recently visited Morningside of Dalton, after almost sixteen years, and I must say, I'm extremely impressed with all the changes that were made. The food was great! Just the feeling I got when I enter the facility, it really made me feel at home. During my employment at Morningside of Dalton, I knew I was making a difference in the residence and their family and it was definitely very rewarding! I later left Morningside of Dalton to pursue my RN degree in Geriatrics! Thank you Morningside of Dalton, for a great experience!

My mother has been at Morningside of Dalton for over six months, but it only took me a couple of weeks to realize I made the right decision. Director Toni Thompson has assembled a terrific staff whose caring, devotion, empathy and compassion for their residents is evident in everything they do. I truly cannot say enough about her and her staff: in short they have made me and Mom feel like family and we truly love them for it. Toni has provided some great insight and has been a wonderful sounding board for care options for Mom.I have appreciated the observations and advice of Cindy, who is the nurse there. Her experience has been valuable in determining treatment options for Mom's dementia. Chasity keeps the residents occupied with various activities. She always seems enthusiastic and does her best to get everyone to participate. My main contact person is usually Chrissy, who is always kind, knowledgeable and patient. Between these four main people, we have been able to get Mom settled in and stable. Kudos are also in order to the kitchen, housekeeping and maintenance staff, who all seem to genuinely care about their residents. When you have a problem it seems that everyone pitches in to help out! The facilities deserve praise also. Morningside of Dalton is located in a quiet, comfortable setting on several lovely acres. It's only minutes back to town, so the location is very convenient. I always smile when I pull up to visit and I see Mom and her friends out front enjoying their rocking chairs when the weather is nice. The facility is clean and the grounds always look nice. They have a warm and inviting lobby and a nice, bright dining and social room. Mom also takes advantage of the beautician who comes in weekly to cut and style residents' hair. Yeah (and thanks) for Miss Pat! I have been impressed by the quality of the food at Morningside. I have eaten there and been there for many meals and was pleased with the variety and choices the residents have. We especially enjoyed the Thanksgiving meal there this year where we had several family members in attendance. Shhh.. don't let Mom know I said this but I think she may have added a pound or two since becoming a resident! Anyone faced with the difficulty of having to find long-term care for their loved one in Dalton or surrounding areas can feel confident and secure that Toni Thompson and her excellent team at Morningside of Dalton would be the absolute best choice. It was for us. God bless them for the very difficult job they do and the care they provide for their residents!
