       MorningStar at Bear Creek, a memory-care center, recently opened on five acres at 2450 Lower Gold Camp Road.
       Geared for seniors suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia, the one-story facility offers 48 bedroom areas in a 35,475-square-foot building.
       Although some landscaping work still remains, the development project was essentially completed in August after about 11 months of construction.
       The location on Lower Gold Camp Road is next to (just east of) the Village at Skyline retirement community, which is also on the north side of the road, with a view over Bear Creek Regional Park and the hills beyond.
       The memory-care center was developed by MorningStar Senior Living in Denver, whose “family of communities” consists of another center in Colorado Springs, four in the Denver area and another in Phoenix, Ariz., according to the company website.
       The MorningStar company was founded in 2003 by Ken Jaeger, who wished to start a “senior housing company that was defined by the human touch,” the website states.
