BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Brentwood City Commissioner Ken Travis shared heartfelt words during Morning Pointe of Brentwood’s 20th Anniversary Celebration to honor parent company Morning Pointe Senior Living’s 20 years serving seniors and families across the Southeast.
But all formalities aside, Travis shared his personal reflections, thanking the assisted living and memory care community for caring for his father-in-law, George Williams.
Attendees — residents, family members, associates and partners — enjoyed an open house celebration, cake and live entertainment. Guests and leadership associates also commemorated Morning Pointe’s commitment to community service through its Make Your Mark campaign. The assisted living and memory care community kicked off the yearlong project involving Morning Pointe communities in five states with a goal to give back 20,000 hours of service in 2017.
Founded in 1996, the Chattanooga-based healthcare services company started with its two co-founders Greg A. Vital and Franklin Farrow, who share one vision to change the senior care industry. The company has since expanded to 27 Morning Pointe Senior Living and The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence communities with three additional communities scheduled to open in the coming year. The company has more than 1,600 residents and 1,300 associates in Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee.
Morning Pointe also plans to expand in Middle Tennessee, with an senior campus underway in Spring Hill that is expected to open its doors in 2017.
