Our mom has been at Morning Pointe in Columbia for about 1 ½ years. When she first came to the facility she was in the assisted living part. The staff was great with Mom and she seemed to do very well. She loved going and sitting on the front porch. As mom’s dementia became worse, she was moved to the Lantern (memory care part). There was a big difference between the two sections; however, after we got over the adjustment period, we knew she was where she needed to be. The staff now seems like family and Mom gets the special attention she needs. We are very glad we have Morning Pointe

Morning Pointe gives a sense of ‘welcome’, from the greetings you receive at the front door, to the beautiful decorations for each season of the year. My mother has received care and consideration by the staff; whether its hugs from the resident assistants or the special desserts for her since she can’t each chocolate desserts. The administration of meds is especially appreciated – knowing they are given accurately & in a timely manner. The friendliness & homey feeling have been wonderful positive traits of Morning Pointe

I absolutely love it here. Everyone is so friendly. I have made so many new friends, I love the activities and the food.
– Labelle Anderson, resident
She had become isolated, all of her friends her age were gone; she was looking for some kind of recognition and value. She wanted to feel worthwhile. My mom is happy at Morning Pointe – she loves the caregivers. They do a wonderful job and they are like family to her.
– Emily, Morning Pointe
It became very difficult to fill the day with the caregivers at home. They didn’t have the expertise or skill to know what to do with my husband. I feel like making this change to The Lantern at Morning Pointe was the best thing I could have ever done for him. He has purpose now.
– Amy Smith, family member
I don’t have to worry about cooking, cleaning or being alone, and I feel like everyone here loves me. I know being a part of Morning Pointe assisted living eases my family’s mind because they know I am happy, safe and well cared for.
– Opal Walker, assisted living resident and ‘Mayor’ of Morning Pointe
If you don’t know it now, you will know it soon; if you don’t love someone with Alzheimer’s today, you will and these guys do it right. That is what I have to say about it. We are glad to have you in our community. We feel as though Morning Pointe does a terrific job with the full spectrum of geriatric care.
– Deanna Esslinger, Alzheimer’s Association Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana
I love the warm and friendly feel of the community. I love the fact that Morning Pointe is pet friendly. That was a big plus in making my decision to live here. The staff is very good to me and I really can’t say enough good things about Morning Pointe.
