Louisville, KY –October 2015- The senior campus construction project spearheaded by Independent Healthcare Properties (IHP) and Morning Pointe Senior Living in Louisville, Kentucky is now complete. The first phase of the $25 million senior campus in Central Kentucky, has created over 200 construction jobs and already 65 people are employed in full-time healthcare careers.
The Chattanooga based senior services company began construction back in August of 2014. Morning Pointe of Louisville (KY) is located at 4711 South Hurstbourne Parkway near Watterson Trail. It now provides seniors in the greater Louisville area with personal care and Alzheimer’s memory care services.
Situated on nine acres, the new senior living and Alzheimer’s memory care community is a craftsman style building with 53 spacious apartments. An additional 20 apartments are located in The Lantern, a secure dedicated wing specially designed for residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory loss. The landscaped campus offers high quality amenities including fine dining areas, life enrichment programs and professional health and wellness services. Innovative and therapeutic programs such as SimpleC Companion services, Cuddle Therapy and the Meaningful Day program have been developed by the Morning Pointe team and incorporated into daily activities to ensure the highest quality of care for residents.
“With the growing senior population and the increasing need for more healthcare services, we believe Morning Pointe can provide the Louisville community and its seniors with more options and choices, enriching the quality of life,” said Greg A. Vital, president and CEO of IHP and Morning Pointe Senior Living.
This two phase development project will also provide 44 apartments in a freestanding Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence. Completion of that area of the senior campus is expected in 2017/18.
With a solid foundation of 16 years of service to seniors in Kentucky and seven senior living and Alzheimer’s Memory Care Communities already in operation, IHP and Morning Pointe are primed for further expansion as they continue to try and meet the growing medical needs of a growing population of seniors.
