Do It For Love
In wisdom, our residents teach the rest of us how to live, reminding us that life’s deepest satisfaction is found when we give ourselves away in service to others. The blessings are boundless. The obvious place for us, as senior care professionals, to start is in service to the Alzheimer’s Association.
Up With Hope
In radiant service to the memory-impaired, MorningStars across our ten states host uplifting celebrations of “The Longest Day” (summer solstice) the third week of June in support the many services of the Alzheimer’s Association.
With the theme of “Up and Under a Lavender Sky,” our extravaganzas carry the message aloft…Up with Awareness. Up with Compassion. Up with Hope. Our community teams each cook up their own flavor of ‘Up’. We throw fundraisers of every sort, unforgettable balloon releases and plantings, games, activities and petting zoos in true Block Party fashion.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s
Every Fall, MorningStar teams walked in joyful, confident strides, at the “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” event held August through November across the cities in which we have communities.
This 5K Walk is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. And we are there: staff, residents, family members—as walkers, runners, exhibitors and sponsors.
In the weeks leading up to the event, MorningStar communities host all manner of creative events to raise money: chili cook-offs, auctions, car washes and piethrowing contests. Together, MorningStar gave $84,909 in 2018 to the Association—in eager search for a cure.
