Meaningful Memory Care Programs and Activities

Dementia Care

If you are looking for a Colorado Springs community devoted to care of those with dementia-related diseases, you will definitely want to take a look at MorningStar Memory Care at Bear Creek.

MorningStar at Bear Creek offers 48 suites in a setting specifically designed to enhance our residents’ freedom and fully accommodate the disposition and behavior of those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. To ensure the safety and well-being of residents, our community is completely secure, including courtyards and strolling paths. Residents of our community have a wide selection of meaningful wellness programs as well as purposeful activities which help maintain respect and dignity. Our programs include a variety of exercise options, music, life skills, art, and entertainers.

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), “being physically active on a regular basis is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself,” and that “even moderate exercise and physical activity can improve the health of people who are frail or who have diseases that accompany aging.” At MorningStar we could not agree more, which is why we offer scheduled exercise every morning with programs such as: Chair Exercises, Morning Stretches, and Circle Ball Exercises. In addition to presenting creative ways to help our residents remain active, each day at Bear Creek is filled with activities that simulate all five senses to feed the whole body and brain. The result is often a noticeable difference in mood and physical well-being.

Popular activities with our residents include music memories, trivia, crafts, and movies starring some of the great actors of all time such as John Wayne, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. Our wide scope of activities means that regardless of interest, residents are sure to find something they like to do. Whether it is joining a sing-a-long, jewelry making, or having the opportunity to attend church service, MorningStar is a great place to call home. Please contact us today to schedule a tour to discover for yourself all that we offer.

MorningStar at Bear Creek is a memory care community that uses progressive methods to palliate symptoms and revive joy. Our foundation is built on honoring God, valuing all seniors and selecting staff with a felt calling to serve, and we are devoted to creating a true home for residents within a serene setting.
