COMMUNITIES Family Reflections “Families are like branches on a tree—we all grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one.” ~ Anonymous “I feel like people really care about her and they do a nice job. They’re very respect- ful and you feel comforted knowing she’s in good hands here. (Sara) always makes lots of friends, she really enjoys eating together with her neighbors. She’s such a friendly person and makes lots of friends.” SHELLY, GREAT-NIECE OF SARA S., CHANDLER ASSISTED LIVING “After the unexpected passing of her be- loved husband, my mother-in-law Barbara moved to Texas to be closer to our family. Menger Springs has been wonderful! Barbara has met new people and enjoys her weekly games of Mahjong and Mexican Train Dominos. The cottages allow her complete independence, yet we know there is always someone looking out for her and should she need a higher level of care in the future, it's right there for her.” “When I came to Morn- ingside, I realized after a little while that I was in a very special place. I think once you come to Morning- side, for the most part you’re home. It’s been a blessing. My mother went through the entire continuum of care. She passed away in 2007, and daddy is now in assist- ed living after 22 years of being in independent living here. He’s very happy here, he loves the care that he gets. I love knowing that he’s well taken care of.” KRISTIN, KEITH, CHRISTOPHER & ELLEN, FAMILY OF BARBARA F., MENGER SPRINGS “I feel like God really helped us find this place for them. It’s just been a real affirma- tion and very delightful, because the spirit of everyone here is a welcoming, encouraging, upbeat spirit and that is who they are.” “I believe it’s brought our family closer, it’s helping us relearn how to connect and be there for each other.” ANNE, DAUGHTER OF HARRIS S., KAULBACH ASSISTED LIVING DEBI & DONNA, DAUGHTERS OF MARY AND CHARLES L., THE MEADOWS Morningside Ministries Senior Living Communities has been providing unparalleled services, amenities and programming with an on-site continuum of care for optimal peace of mind for our residents and their loved ones.
