Movers and shakers attend grand opening for Morning Pointe Senior Living

Morning Pointe Senior Living and Alzheimer’s Memory Care celebrated their grand opening on Tuesday.

“Our commitment to Danville is part of a tradition that Morning Pointe has across the commonwealth of Kentucky,” said Greg Vital, president and CEO of the company. “We’re in over 15 locations, and we’re excited about being here.”

Those who came out to the event were able to enjoy the ceremony and ribbon cutting with guest speakers and special music provided by the Danville Christian Academy Praise Team. Following the program, guests were also served refreshments while taking a tour of the building.

Those who spoke at the ceremony were Mayor Mike Perros, Judge-Executive Harold McKinney, Vice President for College Relations at Centre College Richard Trollinger, Secretary and Treasurer of Economic Development Partnership Terry Gilbert and several others.

“We couldn’t say thank you enough to both Danville and Boyle County, the chamber and the Economic Development Partnership to make this event occur whether it be through the zoning process, the building process or the grand opening,” Vital said.

Along with city and county officials and those who were strongly involved in the Morning Pointe project, there were two family members of Morning Pointe residents who had the opportunity to say a few words about their experience with Morning Pointe. Boyle County Fire Chief Donnie Sexton and Tim McDaniel both have fathers who are residents of Morning Pointe. 

“Anybody can build a beautiful building, but what makes this beautiful organization a beautiful place to live is [the people],” Sexton said. “I’m glad you’re taking care of my father better than anybody could have ever expected.”

“It’s a great place to call home, it’s a great place to live and it’s a great place to retire,” Vital said. 

Morning Pointe also announced that a second building for Alzheimer patients will be placed adjacent to the current structure. Vital said building the second building is expected to take about 16 months.
