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.
