LEXINGTON, KY- The second Morning Pointe personal care community in Lexington, Kentucky, Morning Pointe of Lexington East is now 100% complete. It is time to reserve your room. The newest addition to senior care in the horse capital of the world offers a total of 73 personal care apartments with 20 dedicated to The Lantern Alzheimer’s Memory Care Center of Excellence. “The City of Lexington is fast becoming known for its senior services,” says Greg A. Vital, President and CEO of Morning Pointe and Independent Healthcare Properties (IHP). “With the growing number of people now over the age of 80, the need for more choices and options in personal care and Alzheimer’s memory care is essential.” Conveniently located near St. Joseph’s Hospital East off Richmond Road, just south of Man O’War Boulevard at 150 Shoreside Drive, Morning Pointe of Lexington East provides key care and safety services for all residents including licensed nurses for oversight of health, wellness and medication administration. The personal care community also provides licensed clinical staff that is available 24 hours a day and a 24-hour emergency response system. Individual care plans are drafted programmed and reviewed regularly allowing staff to meet the ever changing needs of the residents today and in the future. Morning Pointe and IHP have already named an executive director to lead their newest addition to the senior care industry. Chad Helton, with over 15 years of experience in the field will oversee the day-to-to day operations of the personal care community serving not only the residents, but their families and the community at large as LexingtonEast becomes a resource for healthy aging and active living. The community will also serve as a central location for an Alzheimer’s Memory care support group. “I fell in love with senior living not long after I started in high school and it is all I have done ever since,” said Helton. “I love what I do and I love turning buildings into homes where people come together and become a family.” Meanwhile, The Lantern at Morning Pointe of Lexington located next door to the current personal and Alzheimer’s memory care community on Ruccio Way is nearing completion marking the third Morning Pointe senior care community in Lexington, Kentucky and the first community dedicated entirely to seniors with Alzheimer’s and other memory care disorders.
