Morning Pointe Senior Living on Thursday will celebrate the grand opening of The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Franklin, part of the assisted living center’s campus on Hwy. 96 West.
Local dignitaries and guest speakers from the Williamson County area will gather for the grand opening of the Alzheimer’s memory care community from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on August 2, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m.
Located at 1015 Generations Way, near Westhaven, The Lantern is the second phase of the
state-of-the-art senior campus in Franklin, and will provide a continuum of care for residents
with a variety of care services for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and memory-related needs in
a secure environment.
The 33,000-square-foot building features 44 specially designed apartments, and will offer high
quality amenities, life enrichment programs and professional health and wellness services.
Innovative and therapeutic programs and the Meaningful Day™ program have been incorporated
into daily activities to ensure the highest quality memory care. The addition of the memory care
community increases the service capacity of the senior campus to 117 residents.
“This expansion of our Franklin senior campus allows us to serve a growing population of aging
seniors in Williamson County,” says Greg A. Vital, president and CEO of Morning Pointe Senior
Living. “With an increasing number of people living longer, Morning Pointe continues to give
residents and families more options and choices in quality care and customer service.”
Morning Pointe has been serving seniors in Middle Tennessee with assisted living and memory care for more than 15 years. In addition to the Franklin senior campus, Morning Pointe operates assisted living and memory care communities in Brentwood, Columbia, and Spring Hill.
