Mom moved to Morningside in April 2017. Her Doctor told her that her medical condition had come to a point where she needed assistance. Mom looked at me and said, “Let’s go look at places!” We visited assisted living facilities within a 30 mile radius of Columbia and sat down to compare notes. Mom said, “I like number two”. Number two was Morningside of Lexington. The first impression sealed the deal for Mom. We were greeted at the door by a warm and welcoming community that included staff members and residents. We were shown four types of rooms and all the amenities. No other facility matched the warmth and hospitality of Morningside. Mom loves the food and looks forward to the comradery at her dining table. When we take her out or stop by for a visit, she checks her watch to make sure she is not late for a meal! The staff keep her room clean; her clothes washed, folded and returned in a timely manner; and she enjoys having visitors. The medical staff ensures that her medications are properly administered and immediately notifies her physician at the first sign of a health change. The activities program keeps Mom engaged and she sometimes tells me that she has to go to her room to rest because she has been so busy. She participates in playing the bells, singing, games, costume parties, arts and crafts, and exercise classes along with other activities. Mom has always wanted to be involved. Prior to coming to Morningside, she was active in her Church Ladies Auxiliary, Sunday School Class secretary/treasurer and Keenagers Club. She sent cards and gifts to sick members on behalf of the entire Church and arranged to deliver food to families when there was a death. The folks at Morningside ask Mom’s opinion and input about her experiences at the facility. This makes her feel needed, useful, and delighted to be a part of the family. Her positive outlook has also contributed to her successful experience. The day Mom was moving to Morningside she said, “I just hope there is someone there who needs my help!”

Just wanted to let you know that we are very happy and proud of what's been happening at Morningside of Lexington. My Dad ( 93 ) has been there since July 2014. Jeremy Priddy has really gotten a handle on things at this community and it is noticeable. Even though it's been recently beautifully renovated, it's the positive changes in the day to day operation that has impressed our family. The staff seems to be more caring, responsible and helpful. We are especially proud of Jenny, Mary, Liz, Theda and the cook ( sorry I do not know her name ). This group is obviously the corner stone of this Community. There are other Team Members that are working hard, but we do not know their names. Keep up the great work.

Fifteen years ago as my daddy lay dying in ICU at LMC; I made a promise assuring him that I...his only child...would take care of mama. Over the years I have tried to do just that...supporting her with love, prayers, and care as well as I knew how. Last November, though, it became apparent I could no longer do that alone. So, we began to seek another "home" for mama. When we walked through the doors of Morningside of Lexington; we immediately felt the warmth of the caring staff and the beauty of this 5-Star Assisted Living Residence! And, to make matters even better...my little bitty, 92 yr. old, set-in-her-ways mama LOVED it!!! WHEW...what a relief! And, over these past 7 months Morningside has become her "home!" Care has turned into love...staff has turned into family...and stress has turned into relief! At every turn, every need has been met...not with obligation; but, with true dedication and concern for mama's health and well-being! I can't say enough good words for our "extended" Morningside of Lexington family! Handshakes become (((HUGS))) at Morningside!! Thank you to Jeremy and all the staff of Morningside! We love you!!

My mother has been a resident at Morningside of Lexington since Feb 2 of this year. Her transition to assisted living has been a challenge for her, the family and the staff at M-side. At every turn, Brenda Harris, Nivia Greene and the entire staff at the Lexington facility have been kind and helpful and compassionate. They have gone above and beyond what we expected to make the transition work for my mother. Their professionalism, their commitment to my mother’s safety and happiness have been a constant. They have created a loving and supportive community that truly serves the residents. Their doors are always open and I have been very happy with my mother's care as well as other services offered by the facility. I am a registered nurse and I teach/train nursing assistants so I know first-hand what is expected of caregivers for the elderly. Every day I see the quality of care in other facilities both skilled and assisted living. Morningside of Lexington stands head and shoulders above others in our area. It's the committed employees that make it so. A company is only as strong, only as good as its people. Brenda, Nivia and all the staff are tops. They are the hands and hearts that care for my mother and I thank the Lord every day for them and the work they do. Thank you, Morningside of Lexington!
