Morning Pointe of Hardin Valley earns deficiency-free state survey

Morning Pointe of Hardin Valley team July 2024

Morning Pointe of Hardin Valley Assisted Living and Memory Care achieved a deficiency-free health licensure survey from the Tennessee Department of Health for 2024.

Senior health care communities must undergo unannounced state inspections yearly. The 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.

“I am so proud of our team for achieving this deficiency-free outcome,” said Paula Goins, executive director at Morning Pointe of Hardin Valley Assisted Living and Memory Care. “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 be here to take care of them as they get older.”

Located at 2449 Reagan Road, Morning Pointe of Hardin Valley offers assisted living and memory care services with 24/7 access to clinical staff, as well as personalized care services. 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 available on-site, as well as specialized memory care programs for the Lantern memory care wing.

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