Our Community Offers a Carefree Lifestyle
At MorningStar of Sparks, we know how to enjoy ourselves. Each month we offer a calendar loaded with meaningful and entertaining activities geared to keep life interesting for our residents.
For example now that the weather is improving, the first meeting of our Gardening Club for 2016 was held. This activity offers residents the chance to get outside and help tend to our beautiful flower beds, vegetable beds, and many planters located around the community. While soaking up the sunshine, residents can take advantage of the benefits of gardening as both a stress reliever and great physical exercise.
One recent day trip that turned out to be very popular was to the Kerak Shrine Circus. Residents were greeted by none other than Corabelle the Clown, otherwise known as our Resident Relations Coordinator, Shelley Minedew. A couple of our residents also got the opportunity to ride atop one of the circus elephants.
Furthermore, food and drink is always an adventure at MorningStar of Sparks. Our residents were recently treated to a lesson in the ancient tradition of brewing Turkish coffee by our own Executive Director, Assaad Zeid. Served in a demitasse cup, the coffee was sipped and savored along with Middle Eastern desserts. In addition while Executive Chef, Jacques Cornelis, stays busy tempting residents with new culinary delights, he also recently hosted a sampling of South American wines from reaches as far as Argentina, Uruguay and Chile.
We encourage you browse our website to see for yourself all of the activities and amenities we offer residents. Our community is made up of 128 suites designed for independent living and 80 for assisted living. We also have 32 secure suites in our Reflection Neighborhood devoted to the individualized, specialized care of those with memory impairment due to Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
MorningStar of Sparks’ unique mission statement “to honor, to serve, to invest” sets us apart from other senior communities. Committed to creating a true home for residents within a gorgeous setting, our foundation is built on honoring God, valuing our seniors and hiring staff with a felt calling to serve.
