Recent reviews of Independent Living in Raleigh, NC
Morningside of Raleigh
4.2

I was fortunate to find a memory care unit that both my parents could move to and stay together. The care my parents are getting is wonderful and the staff is always very helpful when I have a question. My parents haven't really gotten in to the activities yet but they have only been there for 2 months. I no longer need to worry if they are safe or need something because I feel Morningside is taking good care of them. The staff checks on them frequently and is very attentive to their needs concerning personal hygiene. Medication management has been flawless. Questions are answered easily by checking excellent records kept on chart. I have been very happy so far.

The staff went above and beyond to get our loved one moved in with being on a tight budget. They were very willing to work with us and go that extra mile. Location wise the community is very close, and right away we noticed how clean it has and how clean it smelled. The community itself is aesthetically pleasing to look at. Even though they are experiencing high turnover rates the people there are very nice.
