MorningStar at Golden Ridge offers independent living, assisted living and memory care to Peoria area seniors and is committed to creating a true home for our residents. Although we think we are the area’s top option, don’t just take our word for it. Finding the best senior living community for yourself or a loved one is a very important decision, and a tour allows you to experience a community firsthand.
When you tour Golden Ridge, we know from the moment you walk through our door, you are sure to be impressed. Our community was designed from the ground up to accommodate our residents’ every need and is beautifully decorated throughout to provide an atmosphere of comfort, relaxation and serenity. In addition our stylish suites reflect the rest of the community.
A Place for Mom has a few tips for you when visiting a senior living community. Look around at the layout (too large or too small?) and tone of the community. Observe a community activity to get an idea if residents are enjoying themselves. Also they suggest you pay attention to the staff’s friendliness. In addition, ask to see the outdoor space. If you can they recommend eating a meal as you will not only get a chance to sample the cuisine but will get to see residents in a relaxing setting. Be sure to ask questions about personal care, safety and security, housekeeping and laundry services, and move-in and move-out criteria. Above all, A Place for Mom advises that you trust your instincts.
For your tour, MorningStar at Golden Ridge asks that you allow at least 45 minutes in order for us to show off our community. If you would like to join us for lunch (just let us know when you are setting up your tour), please expect to be with us for at least 90 minutes to allow for a leisurely meal.

At MorningStar at Golden Ridge, we represent the very best in senior living with a unique mission statement of “to honor, to serve, to invest.” We have built a foundation on honoring God, valuing all seniors and selecting staff with a felt calling to serve to create a true “home” for residents. Please schedule a visit to experience firsthand our beautiful independent living, assisted living and memory care community.
In addition to MorningStar of Arvada offering seniors a choice of smartly-designed spacious studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans, we also allow residents to share living arrangements. Our Companion Living program is specifically designed for unrelated seniors of the same sex to share a suite. This arrangement is available to our independent living, assisted living and memory care residents.
What are the benefits? Actually there are many reasons it may make good sense for you or a family member that is considering senior living. Since we understand that people are designed for relationships, most of us flourish when we are in one. However, the fact is that many seniors have lost their long-term life partner and are left feeling bereft and isolated. So besides offering the economic benefit of splitting the monthly rent expense in half, a roommate can help alleviate many of these feelings.
In addition to providing a companion, a roommate can make the transition period for a new in-coming resident much easier. The seasoned community member can help guide their new companion through all the facets of senior living and make them feel more confident in socializing with the entire community. Also another often overlooked advantage to companion living is that since roommates inherently look out after one another, they may be the first one to notice a change in the health of their roomie.
To ensure the arrangement works for both parties, MorningStar of Arvada goes to great lengths to match residents who wish to participate in companion living and pair residents based on similar backgrounds and shared interests. Furthermore, even when you share the rent with another resident, you are still offered the full scope of MorningStar’s resort-style amenities including daily meals, activities, scheduled transportation, entertainment and much more. Please contact us if you think this is something you would be interested in.
The unique mission statement of MorningStar of Arvada, “to honor, to serve, to invest,” sets us apart from other senior living communities.

Especially if you are an older adult, you should have a will or trust drawn up as well as a power-of-attorney and an advanced directive. The difference between a will and a trust is a will is a legal document that goes into effect after the person dies while a trust goes into effect as soon as it is created. The trustor (the creator of that trust) can name others to be in charge of the trust when she or he becomes incapacitated or dies.
A living will, also known as a Health Care Directive, is a legal document in which a person specifies what actions should be taken for their health care if they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves because of illness or incapacity. The person named as the health care authority has the power to make medical decisions and sees to it that the wishes of the person is carried out.
Another legal document many seniors find is a good idea to have is a Durable Power Of Attorney (DPOA). The document is used if the person (the principal) ever becomes mentally incapacitated and covers both financial and medical decisions. The attorney-in-fact or agent in effect becomes a legal guardian for the disabled principal.
These types of documents should be drawn up before a person becomes incapacitated. If someone has a diminished capacity due to Alzheimer’s or another medical condition and needs someone to handle their medical and financial decisions, a person can pursue a legal Guardianship status for them. Legal guardianship is granted by the courts and typically continues throughout the remainder of the person’s life. Please refer to your financial consultant or attorney for more information.

Throughout all of MorningStar’s communities, we are privileged to have veterans from all five branches of military service call us home. Whenever we hear that veterans or families of vets are interested in MorningStar at Golden Ridge, we are pleased to direct them to local resources that can help to ease and quicken the application process for “Aid & Attendance”. This is a monthly benefit payment allocated by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to certain wartime veterans and their survivors who qualify for financial need and have a doctor’s order for regular assistance with daily living activities.
Additional qualifications for the vets include having served at least 90 days of active duty, of which at least one day was spent serving during a period of a foreign war. Also, the vet must not have been dishonorably discharged. The Aid & Attendance benefit does not require the vet to have served overseas, seen combat or retired from the military. For surviving spouses to be eligible for the benefit, they must have been married to the vet at the time of their death and never remarried.
Every state (including Arizona) has a Department of Military/Veteran Affairs staffed with Veteran Service Officers who will assist in completing the Aid & Attendance application. Their services are free of charge and the process typically takes three to four months.
We encourage you to contact us to learn more about applying for the benefit. MorningStar at Golden Ridge offers assisted living suites in a range of floor plans as well as secure suites devoted to the individualized care of those with memory impairment. For those looking for independent living, we have well-designed Casitas with attached garages. Visit our website to set up a tour of our beautiful community.
