MorningStar’s Signature WellStar Program
All of our MorningStar communities, including MorningStar Senior Living of Sparks, provide our residents with our signature wellness program, WellStar. Offering an array of creative and enriching ways to stay active and productive, our programs integrate different modalities and senses for both the body and the mind. WellStar has five wellness components – physical, spiritual, intellectual, social, and food philosophy.
One thing that sets MorningStar apart from other senior living communities is that our entire team works together to build a true community and our WellStar programs exemplify that philosophy. Each day, our Wellness and Life Enrichment team offers purposeful activities that are aimed to elevate the mood of our residents, reduce pain and to help them rely less on medications.
Our daily assortment of physical wellness activities are designed to meet a range of capabilities as well as a variety of interests. We also recognize meeting the spiritual needs of our seniors is vital to their wellbeing, and as such, our chapel is open to all faiths. MorningStar also offers non-denominational services on a regular basis along with bible study, hymn singing and group prayer.
In terms of intellectual wellness, we understand that it is important for seniors to continue to stimulate their brains, and we offer a daily dose of brain calisthenics designed to introduce new ideas and practice cognitive skills. Furthermore, we do not neglect the importance of social wellness. Almost everything we do at MorningStar of Sparks enriches our community and advances our goal of building a family for life. Socializing comes in the form of organized events and activities or just informal gatherings discussing the day’s topics.
We also do not forget the philosophy that healthy, nutritious food is the centerpiece of wellness and it becomes even more critical as we age. Our daily meals include the addition of foods that new research finds has tremendous healing power such as: berries, chocolate high in cocoa mass, Omega 3 fats, turmeric, and dark leafy greens.

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.
