Not the normal assisted living facility, and that is a good thing. After visiting and researching several facilities I chose Morningside, Alpharetta for my mother. To be honest, my decision was swayed by the fact that the environment at Morningside simply "felt" right. After our application was processed and the paperwork was signed I wondered (as I'm sure most people do) "have I made the right decision"? My mother has lived here for 8 months now and I'm confident that I made the right decision, and that she is being well cared for. Morningside is not a "home" or a "facility", but rather a community. It's the caregivers that are most important when considering the well being and happiness of a loved one, and the staff and management at Morningside understand that, and definitely provide five star care.

We have been very pleased with Morningside after moving my husband's father in about 7 months ago. He really didn't want to be in an assisted living, getting care from strangers, but it didn't take long for him to feel right at home and grow to love his caretakers! They treat him so well, and treat him with such respect! Of course, no place is perfect, and little things have gone wrong now and then, but mostly we have seen everyone try to do their very best for the residents. We can tell the staff really get to know the residents and care emotionally for them. My husband or I get there everyday, so we know what is going on. The place is clean and cozy and the food is good! It has the feel of a family home! Highly recommend!

My sister and I have been extremely pleased and grateful for the care our mother has received at Morningside. The entire staff, from management to kitchen staff, have been nothing but kind, patient, and helpful. Our mother is happy and has improved since coming to Morningside. We did not expect her to survive her last illness, so to see her thriving is thrilling. I would recommend Morningside without hesitation.

We have received comfort and help from Morningside during happier days and during the illness of our loved one living there. We appreciate the continued help and support we have received from the administrative personnel and the continued care for our loved one from the caregivers.

Unfortunately, this facility was recommended as having "very high standards and excellent care". We have found none of this to be true. We have received many promises to "look into" situations as they have arisen but not positive repair of the issues. Biggest problem is paying for services that are not provided in a quality manner. We hold out hope as the location is so convenient.
