Morning Pointe of East Hamilton Assisted Living and Memory Care recently achieved a deficiency-free clinical and life safety survey from the Tennessee Department of Health.

Senior health care communities must undergo unannounced state inspections yearly. The clinical survey addresses aspects of care from proper medication to nutrition, hygiene to proper record keeping, staffing to resident and family feedback. Surveyors not only observe care but also conduct interviews. The life safety survey addresses the physical state of the building and environment.

“I am so proud of our team for achieving this deficiency-free outcome,” said Ian Shives, senior executive director at Morning Pointe of East Hamilton. “We always strive to treat our residents like family, with the utmost care and respect. Our seniors have given so much for us, and it’s our privilege to take care of them as they get older.”

Located at 1776 Generations Way, off East Brainerd Road, Morning Pointe of East Hamilton offers assisted living and memory care services with 24/7 access to clinical care. Meals are served with dietician oversight in a restaurant-style setting and with an emphasis on fresh, local produce. Residents also enjoy a full life enrichment activity program, including regular outings, service projects, intergenerational programming, and engaging community partnerships. Physical, occupational and speech therapy services are also available on-site.

Rob Pollard, senior vice president of operations for Morning Pointe Senior Living, added, “With our campus growing here in East Hamilton, achieving these survey results speaks volumes to the community about the emphasis we place on quality. Well done, team East Hamilton.”

The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, East Hamilton is currently under construction next door. It will offer two levels of memory care, including adding earlier memory care as a service on the campus. The Lantern is expected to open in early 2025.

The campus is operated by Morning Pointe Senior Living. The company, founded in 1997 by Tennessee healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and Franklin Farrow, currently operates 38 communities in five southeastern states. Other area Morning Pointe campuses are located in Chattanooga, Collegedale, Hixson and Walker County, Georgia.

The philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living is the Morning Pointe Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works to provide nursing scholarships and caregiver support.
