At MorningStar, it’s in the air. In the very chemistry of the place. You can feel it. You can see it with your own eyes, every day: our staff flat out loving our residents, loving them like they do their own moms and dads.
Ken Jaeger, founder of MorningStar, proved his acumen for the senior living industry through 15 years of executive roles, garnering experience in acquisitions, construction and management.
In 2003, an idea began to take shape, a pressing dream to create his own brand of senior living defined by the human touch. “I wanted to re-create my grandmother’s house, a place where one can go and feel a sense of family.”
Ken had specific designs on how to foster the ultimate environment for the well being of seniors. Out of these convictions, he established three precepts for MorningStar: Honor God. Value All Seniors. Invest generously in his team.
From his first home in Denver, MorningStar Assisted Living of Littleton, the difference was manifest: all the amenities of a five-star resort infused with the warmth of a real home.
And now, ten years and 12 homes later, MorningStar has become a landmark name in senior living.
From independent living to assisted living, from basic care through Alzheimer’s support, MorningStar’s continuum of service allows residents to extend their stay until a diagnosis calls for 24-hour nursing. Through Respite Care and Day Programs, MorningStar also opens its homes for short-term stays.
Our website offers even more about the MorningStar difference. There you’ll read about WellStar, our signature program which encompasses the physical, social, spiritual and intellectual sides of wellness. You’ll see a gallery of our award-winning architecture and gracious design. And find a Decision Guide that helps families understand & navigate the complex world of senior living, complete with downloadable templates. Read especially “Testify to Love,” which captures the sentiments of residents, their families and our staff as to why we do what we do and the impact we have.
We see our residents as heroes—men and women who have exacted out of life all its triumphs and trials, who in raw courage and tenacity have invested their days. Seniors are a testimony to the colossal events in history. They’ve witnessed world wars and the worldwide web—all in one glorious sweep. If anyone deserves honor and respect, it is our seniors. This is MorningStar’s high and chosen calling.

Stutchman Family Business Recognized with “When The Going Gets Tough” Award
For the past 40 years the Stutchman family has been in the business of senior care, presently owning and operating Arbors Memory Care Community. During their tenure they’ve seen highs and lows in their business, including economic downturns and the death of a husband/father/principal partner. Through it all though, they’ve not only survived, but they’ve been able to thrive.
The Stutchman family was recently recognized by the Nevada Business Magazine through the publication’s annual Family Owned Business Awards. They received the award for “When The Going Get’s Tough.” The winner of this award is defined as “A business that faced adversity and made changes to adapt to what was sure to be a tough time.”
The magazine received several hundred nominations and narrowed those down to three finalists and then one winner in 10 categories for both the South and North part of the state.
Nevada Business Magazine had this to say about the Arbors, “Founded by Connie and Tom Stutchman, Arbors Memory Care Community is in a tough business, assisted living. Couple that with the recent economic downturn and the Arbors had to adapt to survive. Run today by the Stutchman’s daughter, Gina and her husband Jason Lewis, the organization has found a way to adapt their business model and provide affordable, yet quality assisted living.”
Some of the ways the Arbors has adapted is to add triple occupancy to their room mix, creating a more affordable option for families who need care for their over one with Alzheimer’s. They also began to offer fixed-rate, all-inclusive pricing which enabled families to count on a consistent monthly amount for care throughout their family member’s entire stay. Lastly the Arbors remodel project has just begun as well which will provide an even brighter and more inviting environment for residents and staff.
“We are absolutely thrilled to win this award and to be recognized by the business community for our years of dedication to quality senior care in Northern Nevada. We look forward to caring for our seniors and providing jobs in the Reno/Sparks community for another 40 years,” says owner Gina Stutchman.
Arbors Memory Care Community is a locally owned and operated residential community providing care for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The Arbors, which is licensed for 72 beds, consistently receives an A grade in state inspections.
