Each one is currently seeking individuals with big hearts who are drawn to the idea of working with seniors.
As you learn about our history and founding principles, you will gain a better understanding of why our approach to senior housing is so unique. Ken Jaeger, our Founder/CEO had specific ideas on how to foster the ultimate environment for both residents and team members, which starts with the guiding precepts found in our Mission statement. It reads: Honor God in our business practices and relationships; Value all seniors as gifted and contributing individuals; and Invest generously in our team’s ability to serve.
Yes, you read that right, MorningStar’s goal of building a distinguished team of service professionals is so important to us that it is included in our mission statement. Investing in our team’s ability to succeed is not just nice words but something we put into action every day in our communities. This includes a hiring process that starts by seeking individuals with a felt calling to serve, and then providing them, regardless of their position, training in our signature customer service initiative we call Radiance, which celebrates an attitude of selflessness that issues from a deep and sincere place.
Our open assisted living jobs at Phoenix’s premiere senior living communities include everything from housekeeping jobs, cooks, dining room servers, dishwashers to care managers, medication care managers and techs, nurses, directors and coordinators. Positions are full and part-time as well as evening, night, and weekend shifts. Please visit our website for a chance to make a difference in the lives of our incredible residents.

Experts say it is important to seek the advice of your doctor if memory problems are seriously affecting your life. To determine if you or a loved one has Alzheimer's disease, the Mayo Clinic explains, “doctors conduct tests to assess memory impairment and other thinking skills, judge functional abilities, and identify behavior changes. They also perform a series of tests to rule out other possible causes of impairment.”
During your appointment, the Mayo Clinic says expect to be evaluated on:
Tests include neuropsychological tests that are used to access your abstract thinking, problem-solving skills, memory, language usage and other related skills. Your doctor may also schedule braining-imaging tests. While these brain scans are not used to diagnose Alzheimer’s, they can detect other conditions such as hemorrhages, brain tumors or damage from a past stroke. They are also used to establish a baseline in terms of the amount of degeneration seen on the scans.
Your doctor may also talk with your family to learn more about the types of changes they have noticed and how they have affected who you are now. All of the information is then used to rule out other conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, strokes, or depression that may be causing your symptoms.
It is understandable that people are often afraid to go to a doctor once they suspect Alzheimer’s. Furthermore, many feel that since there is no cure, what is the point? However, doctors stress once you are diagnosed with the disease, you can start getting the proper treatment as well as consider your care options and plans for the future.

MorningStar Senior Living at Golden Ridge represents the finest in senior living with our unique mission statement “to honor, to serve, to invest.” With a foundation built on honoring God, valuing our seniors and hiring staff with a felt calling to serve, we provide a true home for residents. We invite you to schedule a tour to see firsthand our exceptional senior living community in Peoria, AZ.
In addition to independent and assisted living, MorningStar of Arvada offers 29 secure suites in our Reflections Neighborhood devoted to the individualized, specialized care of residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. We do not just care for our special residents’ needs but also provide support to their families. We know that a dementia diagnosis and prognosis is met with all kinds of questions and anxiety, and part of our job is to help families cope with the uncertainty. As they try to adjust to their new reality, we deliver hope, and for the memory-impaired, hope comes wrapped in intentionality and creativity.
Our extensive experience in dementia care has shown us that healing always comes from human touch, from empathy, and from purposeful engagement. Dementia sufferers live in a purple world – an alternative reality, and the best way to reach them is to “get purple” too. Right from the beginning of our relationship with a resident, we find out as much as we can about their history, their preferences and special talents and use that to help us sort through what their behavior is really trying to communicate. For example, if a resident is getting agitated and saying they must go home, we respond with, “Tell me about your home; what is it like? Why do you love it so?”
In addition, our team encourages families not to dwell on what has been lost but rather to be surprised by what is found. We have discovered that if we truly enter the moment, we can embrace what comes next. To help guide our families, we recommend they learn as much as they can about the disease because with understanding, comes acceptance. We also think it is beneficial to join an Alzheimer’s Association support group. Lastly our families are always welcomed and encouraged to join us as we participate in one of our Alzheimer’s Association events to help raise funds and awareness of the disease.
Please visit our website to learn more about our compassionate, loving memory care. While you are there, use the link on our home page to setup a tour or to inquire about pricing and availability.

If a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia and you are looking for the best care, a memory care community may be your answer. While typically more expensive than other senior living options, they are equipped to provide the most comprehensive care.
Memory care communities such as MorningStar of Beaverton care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia from the onset of the disease right through to the most advanced stages. Services include 24-hour supervision and typically offer a secure environment specifically designed to keep residents safe and secure. This means residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible and are free to explore their surroundings.
Another thing to know about memory care is that it has evolved through the years. Today’s communities now offer wellness programs that help deal with memory impairment and wandering issues as well as other common dementia behaviors. At MorningStar of Beaverton, we provide residents a number of specialized programs and highly personalized care that addresses their unique needs.
Studies also show residents in memory care communities have a higher quality of life. A Place for Mom, the largest senior living referral website, reports that residents in memory care have “reduced medication and medication side effects; fewer falls, injuries, and hospital visits; increased nutrition and wellness; and greater independence and social interaction.” They also add that close to 75 percent of residents experience an improvement or maintenance of mental functioning.
As a family member of a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s or another dementia, you may be struggling to understand the disease and its consequences. MorningStar of Beaverton recognizes many of our residents’ families need help navigating through the various challenges of the disease, and we are grateful we can provide the support they need.

Assisted living communities such as MorningStar’s Phoenix homes offer free specialized training such as our proprietary Radiance service initiative, our Lavender Sky memory care program, CPR, and other meaningful training. These programs are intended to establish your status as a professional service provider.
Another great thing about working in assisted living is your co-workers. You will find yourself working alongside men and women who have also prioritized serving others as a worthy pursuit, and understand the magnitude of their contributions to society. Furthermore as they too are dealing with some of the same challenges you are, they are the perfect people to understand your occasional frustrations.
Working in assisted living additionally provides the opportunity for you to build special relationship with society’s true heroes – our residents. By taking the time to listen, we can learn many of life’s lessons from seniors and enjoy their incredible stories of times past.

The Alzheimer’s Association states that the number of adults suffering from Alzheimer’s disease is increasing and there is now an estimated 5.8 million Americans with the disease. They add that every 65 seconds someone comes down with the disease. Among that number includes approximately 200,000 people who are under the age of 65 who have younger-onset Alzheimer's. Experts also predict that as we continue to live longer, the number of those age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s will grow to 13.8 million by 2050. Right now, it is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, and currently, cannot be prevented or cured.
These sobering statistics mean that more families are finding themselves in the situation of having a family member with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. For those who are family caregivers, the Alzheimer's Association found it can take an overwhelming toll on them both physically and emotionally. Their studies show that close to 60 percent of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers “rate their stress level as high or very high.” Approximately 40 percent of family caregivers suffer from depression and required healthcare services related to the emotional and physical toll of their caregiving.
Experts recommend that if you are family caregiver that you reach out for help from a variety of sources including relatives, friends, and local community organizations. Caregiver support groups can also be helpful as you can connect with other who are dealing with the same problems. Respite care and day care centers can also give you some relief from the responsibility and difficulties of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s.

MorningStar Senior Living has four gorgeous senior living communities located in and around Phoenix. Our Valley of the Sun communities include MorningStar at Arcadia, MorningStar of Fountain Hills, MorningStar at Arrowhead, and our newest, MorningStar at Golden Ridge. Also our loving homes are proud to be part of a company with a mission to make a difference in senior living as well as throughout the world with purpose-driven, servant-minded leadership.
The MorningStar company was founded over 15 years ago by Ken Jaeger who wanted to create a new type of senior living, one that felt like Ken’s “grandmother’s home, defined by human touch and a sense of family. This philosophy lead Mr. Jaeger to create a culture defined less by what we do and more by why we do it; and we call this culture “Radiance.”
More than just a customer service program but rather an attitude of the heart, Radiance guides the way we wish to deliver service – with depth of purpose, warmth and sincerity. In fact, we consider the concepts to be so vital to our mission that every employee, regardless of their position is trained in Radiance. Moreover as we know something needs to be practiced to become a habit, Radiance’s concepts are reinterated each day during our “Daily Huddle.”
While our intention is to ensure the finest care for our residents and to create the ultimate workplace for our staff, many of our team members say that Radiance has helped to make them a better person both professionally as well as personally. Just read what one team member writes in thanks to Mr. Jaeger for his founding values: “Radiance training is absolutely phenomenal! Thank you for investing so much into your company, residents and, especially, team. I appreciate that MorningStar strives not only to help team members be their best at work, but in their personal lives as well. Thank you for caring about our residents as much as we do. Thank you for creating an environment that conveys that. I feel privileged to work here; MorningStar is a part of me. Know that I am praying for you, our leaders and this company daily.”
