Frequently Asked Questions

The decision to move to a senior living community comes with lots of questions

The first being “What exactly is a senior living community?” Many people view communities like Morning Pointe as nursing homes but that is far from reality.

Morning Pointe Senior Living communities are designed to help people maintain their independence while having access to just the right amount of personalized care. This type of carefree lifestyle enables residents to focus on new experiences, making friends, and enjoying activities.

Whether you are making the decision for yourself or a loved one, take a look at some of our most frequently asked questions below. And when you’re ready to take a tour or speak with us about senior living options get in touch.

This is a very common response when it comes to considering senior living. Many people feel this way. They may believe that senior living is like a nursing home and it means giving up their independence. The reality is far different. Senior living like Morning Pointe offers levels of care depending on a resident’s needs. The key is to make the move when the person is more independent and able to enjoy everything Morning Pointe Senior Living has to offer. Waiting too long to make this decision often means a decision is made in a crisis mode. We have found that seniors who make this choice earlier, get to do just that – make a choice about their senior living community – rather than family making a rushed decision in an emergency situation or worse when senior living is no longer an option because we waited too long.

A typical comment we often hear from our residents after the move has taken place is, “why did I wait so long. I wish I had moved sooner.” Many residents find that they have more time for themselves, family and less responsibility and stress associated with maintaining a house and yard, cooking, cleaning, or living alone.

We take a team approach from our executive director to our maintenance director. Each associate plays a key role in the transition process. The director of nurses ensures the care staff is up-to-date on the latest medical and care needs. The life enrichment director details activity preferences while the food services director understands special dietary needs and preferences. The maintenance director helps with the move and other apartment projects. The entire team works to understand who the newest resident is, their history, their likes and dislikes. In many cases, there is a “Morning Pointe Welcoming Committee” made up of residents who greet new residents and invite them to join in activities, outings, meals and more.

Morning Pointe Assisted Living offers different levels of care. Couples can live in the same apartment and receive different levels of care. In many of the communities not only is there senior living or personal care services but there is also Alzheimer’s and memory care services. The beauty of the program is to provide just the right amount of care for each resident while promoting independence. As needs change so too can the levels of care.

Morning Pointe Assisted Living is compatible with most long-term care insurance policies. The executive director of your community can review your policy in detail and assist you with the process.
