DANVILLE, KY. – Morning Pointe of Danville and the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment sponsored a movie screening of I’ll Be Me by Glen Campbell, country music legend. The Oscar-nominated documentary navigates the progression of Mr. Campbell’s day-to-day experience with Alzheimer’s disease, chronicling his goodbye tour in 151 cities throughout Australia, Europe and the U.S.
The screening was a part of Morning Pointe of Danville’s outreach, as the senior living community prepares to open in fall of 2016.
This will be the ninth Morning Pointe senior living and memory care community in Kentucky. Morning Pointe operates other communities in Frankfort, Lexington, Louisville, Richmond and Russell.
“For almost 20 years, Morning Pointe Senior Living has provided care to seniors and seen an ever-increasing need to offer specialized daily care to those who are affected by Alzheimer’s and other memory care issues,” said Greg A. Vital, president and CEO of Morning Pointe. “We are honored to be able to share this personal journey with the central Kentucky community.”
The new senior living community is located at 1375 Perryville Road, at the corner of Cunningham Way near Millennium Park and Centre College. The craftsman-style building with 44 personal care and 16 Alzheimer’s care apartments will offer high-quality amenities including fine dining areas, life enrichment programs and professional health and wellness services. Innovative and therapeutic memory care programs, such as SimpleC Companion services, Cuddle Therapy and the Meaningful Day program, have been incorporated into daily activities to ensure the highest quality of care for residents. Future plans include construction of a 44-apartment freestanding Alzheimer’s center of excellence building on the 40-acre campus.
