New luxury senior facility opens in Lone Tree

Ribbon-cutting celebrates Morning Star Senior Living's 20th community

Posted

More than 200 attendees surrounded the statue of a tree — its leaves designed by community members and new residents with the help of an artist — and listened to Ken Jaeger, CEO and founder of MorningStar Senior Living, introduce his newest community, MorningStar Senior Living at RidgeGate.

“I am amazed how God honored this from day one,” Jaeger said, standing in the lobby of the new building at the Jan. 11 ribbon-cutting ceremony. “I really believe there is a sense of calling in all our lives to put out arms around the seniors who choose to call this wonderful community their home.”

The four-year development and construction of the $56 million senior living center wrapped up early this month. Residents started moving in Jan. 4.

Morning Star Senior Living at RidgeGate, 10100 Commons St., is a five-story facility offering independent living, assisted living and memory care. The 265,000-square-foot community includes a restaurant, cafes, art studio, theater, lounge, courtyard, fitness center and a pool. Month-to-month rent starts at $3,075.

“I expected it to be nice, but I am speechless and dumbfounded by how beautiful this facility is,” Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet said. “I really could not have contemplated what a pleasant experience it is to walk through these doors and into this environment… On behalf of the city of Lone Tree, we would like to welcome you.”

Jaeger, whose father recently moved into the facility, wants to create a quality living experience for seniors.

“We want to be a home and a company where goodness and kindness is the norm, rather than the exception, when it comes to team members loving on our seniors,” Jaeger said.
