Annually, Morning Pointe acknowledges top-performing teams of caregivers, directors and customer service associates from its 33 communities across the Southeast.

“I appreciate the commitment to both excellence and compassion that is demonstrated by our associates,” says Greg A. Vital, president and co-founder of Morning Pointe Senior Living. “We are proud to have the opportunity to honor these communities that help make Morning Pointe the region’s choice for senior care.”

The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Chattanooga received the 2019 Fiscal Responsibility Award, recognizing the memory care community’s achievements in financial stewardship while maintaining excellence in resident care. Morning Pointe corporate leadership presented Alisha Landes, the executive director at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Chattanooga, with a plaque of recognition during Morning Pointe’s annual year-end awards banquet.

“It is such an honor to receive this award,” Ms. Landes said. “It is so important to us to be good stewards of our finances, while ensuring that our residents receive the absolute best care.”

“The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Chattanooga sets a magnificent example for the rest of our communities throughout the region. They embody the spirit and values that Franklin Farrow and I first envisioned for Morning Pointe more than 20 years ago,” Mr. Vital said. “While it’s true that it’s all about our residents at Morning Pointe, our associates are equally important. None of what we do today would be possible without them.”
