Q: I would like to move to your community but have my house to sell first. I have lived in my home for over 30 years. The thought of moving is overwhelming. How can you help?
A: Although moving is not an easy endeavor, MorningSide’s caring and knowledgeable team is here to help orchestrate the entire move. We work closely with experienced and trusted companies. These companies specialize in helping seniors by packing and sorting for a move, listing and selling the home and moving into a new residence. Stop by and let us show you how we can greatly reduce your stress and apprehension and get you into our wonderful community.

Q: I am 86 years of age and pride myself for remaining independent all these years. Lately I have been feeling a little vulnerable living alone. I would like to feel more secure and enjoy the company of other people my age without feeling like I am sacrificing my independence and pride. Is this possible?
A: You are not alone. Many of our current residents at MorningSide voiced similar concerns and questions before moving to our community. I believe we offer a unique living opportunity here at MorningSide. Our private apartments are spacious and more closely represent an independent senior living environment than most. Independent residents are free to come and go as they please or take advantage of our transportation services. You can maintain your privacy or share in a card club, musical event, or other social activity. You can prepare your own meal or join others for a delicious meal in the dining room. When you add in the 24 hour staffing, housekeeping services and beautiful grounds it all allows you more time to enjoy the independence and security you want to maintain. 

Q: What happens if I move to an Independent Community and find I need more assistance?

A: If you find yourself in need of more extensive care Home Services Unlimited is there to help. HSU has been serving Indianapolis seniors for 20 years and is accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Partner. HSU has been named a Homecare Elite “Top Agency” for eight of the past 10 years.  If you are in need of Physical, Occupational or Speech Therapy Legacy Healthcare is located onsite to meet your needs. 

Q: What does my rent include in your Independent Community?
A: At MorningSide your rent includes utilities (including phone, cable and internet), trash removal, bi-weekly housekeeping, meals, planned activities/events and scheduled transportation. By bundling everything together in your rent we save you the time and hassle of maintaining your home. This will allow you the time to enjoy the things you like most.
