Morning Pointe of Knoxville Assisted Living will celebrate its five-year anniversary of service to Knoxville-area seniors on Thursday, Jan. 25.

Since its opening in 2019, the building has not only been a home and advocate for hundreds of seniors but has also built relationships with residents’ families, the greater senior community, local health care partners and many volunteers.

The anniversary celebration, which will start at 2 p.m., will emphasize those relationships.

The event will include an invocation by Pastor Henry Bieber from Shoreline Church, located next door to the senior living campus. Christian Academy of Knoxville’s children’s choir will sing, and Deborah Cable, winner of the Morning Pointe Foundation’s 2022 Seniors Got Talent show in Knoxville, will play the harp. Katie Harbin, development and public relations specialist with Alzheimer’s Tennessee, will speak, and guests can enjoy hors d’oeuvres prepared by Morning Pointe of Knoxville’s culinary team.

Ten associates at the assisted living community have worked there for more than four years, including managers and frontline staff. Of these, four managers have been with the community since its opening.

Kristy Ritch, senior executive director, is one of these.

“Five years ago, when we were in a construction trailer watching our community being developed, we only prayed and hoped it would be a great community,” Ritch shared. “Now five years later, I can say we are appreciative of the dedicated work we all have done to enrich the lives of our residents, staff and community. Here at Morning Pointe, we take care of each other, love one another and respect one another. I am extremely humbled and honored by the work we have done and will continue to do in the years to come.”

Morning Pointe of Knoxville welcomed its sister community, The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Knoxville, to the campus in 2020. Together, the two buildings provide a continuum of care for seniors with different needs.
