LOUISVILLE, KY (July 11, 2017) – The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence is now open at 4701 S. Hurstbourne Parkway, adjacent to Morning Pointe of Louisville. The 39,000-square-foot memory care community is now accepting new residents.

Answering to the increasing need of Alzheimer’s caregiver support programs in Kentucky, the 110-unit, 10-acre Louisville campus features 44 specially designed apartments with two levels of memory care: The Lantern – an intimate environment for individuals needing greater levels of assistance, and The Lamplight program for residents in the early to moderate stages of cognitive decline.

The memory care community offers a full spectrum of Alzheimer’s and dementia care services, including the Meaningful Day™, an innovative program designed to improve the quality of life for seniors with memory loss, and SimpleC™ Companion, an intuitive, non-drug therapy using touch screen applications to promote improved engagement and memory. Cuddle Therapy, also available at the community, is a recognized Alzheimer’s program with specially created, lifelike dolls to help residents feel a sense of calm and purpose.

“With the growing number of individuals in need of Alzheimer’s and memory care services, Morning Pointe is expanding to provide seniors and their families with more options and choices that enrich the quality of life,” says Greg A. Vital, president and CEO of Morning Pointe Senior Living. “We are continuing Morning Pointe’s tradition of providing senior care services for more than 20 years by expanding our services to 10 locations across Kentucky.”

Morning Pointe is the region’s choice for senior living and memory care in Kentucky. In addition to the Louisville campus, the Chattanooga, TN-based healthcare services company operates communities in Danville, Frankfort, Lexington, Richmond and Russell.
