Our nation is experiencing incredible growth in the 85+ population. More and more for these seniors, there is an increasing need for both physical and emotional support. Assisted living or personal care is designed to meet this need and Morning Pointe Senior Living provides a natural alternative to a traditional nursing home for seniors who do not require skilled nursing care. At all of our Morning Pointe Assisted Living and Senior Living communities you will find assistance with medication, transportation to appointments, delicious meals – whatever your loved one needs and whenever they need it, Morning Pointe is here. Morning Pointe can help manage the uncertainty of caring for an aging loved one, while enhancing their independence.
The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence is exclusively designed for the specialized care of those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of memory loss disorders. Our community approach is based on the latest in Alzheimer’s research and our history of providing exceptional care and innovative programming since 1996. Community design, apartment layout, and room colors along with purposeful activities and monitoring have all been developed to optimize independence and quality of life. Residents are nurtured wholly in mind, body and spirit in a calming and compassionate environment. We see ourselves as part of the solution that can enrich lives with comfort, security and positive support.
What is Personal Care in Kentucky?
In the Commonwealth of Kentucky, a Personal Care community is part of a healthcare continuum of care that includes Personal Care communities, Assisted Living communities and Nursing Homes. Personal care communities are licensed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky through the Kentucky Cabinet of Health Services, while Assisted Living communities are certified (not licensed) by the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living. A Personal Care community will often allow the resident to “age in place” longer before a higher level of care may be required, i.e., a nursing home. The greatest difference between Personal Care and Assisted Living relates to nursing oversight and medication management, which is provided at a Personal Care community.
