Senior Living: Boise Area’s Top Choice
MorningStar of Boise is tucked into a residential neighborhood on the west end of this beautiful capital city. The “City of Trees” is the populous area in the state, with the Boise Ridge Mountains rising to an elevation of 7,500 ft. Our home is convenient to banks, hospitals, shopping malls, grocery stores and restaurants.
Idaho was awarded the #4 ranking by MSN.com in its 2015 article, “The 10 Best States for Retirement,” in recognition of its low crime rate (2nd lowest in US), good weather, low cost of living, and the fact that 70% of its land is public (parks, monuments and preserves).

The Definition of Adorable
Now really, could this face be any more adorable? Six-year-old Abby is our new MorningStar house dog, adopted from a private home into our larger full community. Though diminutive as a Lhasa Apso-Maltese mix, Abby has the biggest of dog hearts, open to any who will cuddle. You’ll find this sweet girl greeting all who pass our Concierge Desk, or perhaps resting on her very pink pillow (as true royals do).
Please drop in or give us a call at 208.469.4379 to schedule a tour of our grounds and senior living community. We certainly hope you like what you see in our gracious home.
The unique mission statement of MorningStar of Boise, “to honor, to serve, to invest,” sets us apart from other senior living communities.

Senior man with kids smiling and wavingMen and women move to MorningStar for a refreshing change of lifestyle with built-in companionship, predictable budgeting, activities and programming, and tasty meals they no longer need to cook. Under our roof, seniors enjoy stress-free living, a season that extends their independence and continues the adventure.
Healthy and active, they seek relaxation and society in their retirement years. For these residents, we offer resort-style amenities and pure fun. Perhaps you’d like to pop into our PageTurners Book Club, give our Inklings Writing Group a try, or cheer along at a NFL booster party. Your family is warmly invited to enjoy our live entertainment or yet another holiday celebration.
We handle all the maintenance, inside and out, and offer weekly housekeeping. Our Independent Living suites are equipped with their own washer/dryer, and full kitchens for the meals you feel like preparing on your own.
Our operating license does not permit us to extend care to those in our Independent Living neighborhood, however we can arrange for home health agencies to serve you, if the need arises.

With a Little Help From My Friends
Senior man painting with young girlThe only difference in our senior years is that we may have to open ourselves to a little help once in a while. And from that level of honesty and transparency, we enter into a truer human experience, one in which we can receive—and give—love. It becomes quite a lovely exchange of mutual blessing.
In our Assisted Living neighborhoods, MorningStar offers various levels of support with the activities of daily living, each type of assistance determined after an assessment with our Wellness Director, working in agreement with the senior and extended family. In all cases, around-the-clock Care Managers, on site and at the ready, ensure your safety as they meet your expressed (and even unexpressed) needs.
For you, the senior, it is our team’s responsibility to remember you prefer coffee with cream, or that you hail from Youngstown, Ohio. It’s our pleasure to help you choose an outfit for dinner on the town. It’s our gift to respond to you with thoughtfulness, and encourage independence wherever it can be found, and to instill self-confidence in all that you are and all that you are contributing.
For you, the family member, perhaps all this talk about assisted living is attended with feelings of guilt. You wish you could open your own home to a beloved senior, but other commitments and constraints prevent you. Perhaps you are now the caregiver, and feel apprehensive about turning that role over to someone else, even though your selflessness is taking its toll on your own health and well being.
A Candid Word to the Spouse or Adult Child
Perhaps all this talk about assisted living communities is attended with feelings of guilt in you as the spouse or adult child of a senior in need. You wish you could open your own home to a beloved senior, but other commitments and constraints prevent you. Perhaps you are now the caregiver, and feel apprehensive about turning that role over to someone else, even though your selflessness is taking its toll on your own health and well being.
Please know we are here not to replace you, but to walk beside you and your spouse or parent—all in the hope of being an additional loving presence in all of your lives. And if you allow MorningStar to assume the full-time role of Care Manager, the two of you are free to reestablish a more balanced relationship. Finally relax. Share a laugh. Enjoy each other.
Many of us on the MorningStar team have walked this same road with our own aging moms and dads. We too have marked the passage of time, and seen the need for a lifestyle adjustment. We too have sought advice from others, and wended our way through plenty of heart-to-heart talks. We have helped to redistribute possessions piled high after years of accumulation, to sell the family home of half a century, and to make the tender decisions.
Abundant Life in a Different World
Woman painting a pictureMany of us joke of “senior moments” when we have glitches in our memory. However, a true diagnosis of brain disease, where memory loss and other cognitive functions deteriorate, is a heavy blow. It ushers seniors and their families onto an entirely different path: a “purple path,” a winding and mysterious road. MorningStar is honored to walk alongside the memory-impaired (and their families) on this unexpected journey.
Whatever the extent of the memory loss, whatever the form of dementia, we know a person’s essence remains. Our calling—our privilege—at MorningStar is to find ways to connect with and nurture that essence. Our energies are put toward continuing to find ways to celebrate and elevate life.
MorningStar’s philosophy and approach to this kind of supported living is encompassed under the expanse of possibilities we call “Lavender Sky.” Under a Lavender Sky, our ambition is to thoughtfully enter, embrace and explore.
Dementia is an entirely different and isolating world. Here, involuntarily, the memory-impaired enter, and remain. Into this world, a corps of the most amazing souls also choose to enter…drawn by compassion. In loving support for the memory-impaired, we enter with insight and intentionality. As agents of comfort, we step into their “purple world,” crossing over the physical, emotional and boundaries that would otherwise separate us. As dementia care experts, MorningStar endeavors to educate families in how to follow our lead and enter too.
Embracing the world of dementia begins by accepting the diagnosis (difficult as that can be), and the fact that this is now the path we must walk, together. As much, we embrace a deep understanding of brain disease, whatever the form of dementia that has taken hold. We embrace whatever changes are needed in our own communication style, willingly changing us, for their sake. We embrace disruption for the discovery and innovation it reveals. We embrace each moment, ransoming it for joy, as we embrace residents physically, knowing the power of human touch. Most centrally, we embrace hope—that it remains, even now. You just have to know where to look.
Under a Lavender Sky, exploration is boundless. It must be, for dementia itself is expansive, each form manifesting differently in each person. As care partners, exploring means being resourceful, finding individualized solutions, and resolving to begin anew (for what worked yesterday may not work today). We explore a person’s life, history and preferences to offer personalized care. We explore ways to involve and engage family members, knowing our service is as much to them as to the residing senior.
Short Term Stays
Respite Stays in Assisted Living Neighborhood
The Respite and Day Program at MorningStar Senior Living offers tailor-made services and heart-felt care.
Perhaps you are recovering from surgery or otherwise convalescing. MorningStar offers the quiet quarters and personal attendance you need to fully recover. We also offer the companionship and community that is just as much a part of healing. Or perhaps your regular caregiver is needing a short vacation (or staycation).
Under our roof you can enjoy all your meals and snacks, meet new friends, and join the intellectual, physical, social and spiritual activities offered to all residents. Of course, true wellness is ultimately found, not in programming, but in the human touch. It’s the antidote to loneliness—for all of us.
