Morning Pointe Senior Living kicked off National Nurses Week 2021 by reflecting on the pivotal role these associates have played while on the frontline battling the COVID-19 pandemic and, locally, a tornado.
To say thank you would not be enough to honor the more than 300 nurses across the organization who have sacrificed so much during the past year, officials said.
“It has been an emotional year, but our nurses are the unsung heroes that deserve all the credit
for helping us not just survive, but thrive in senior living,” said Morning Pointe President Greg
A. Vital. “These associates have stepped up in more ways than anybody to make sure our
residents receive excellent care. They cover extra shifts when needed; they were present when
family members couldn’t be over the past year. I am so proud of our nurses and what they mean
to Morning Pointe Senior Living.”
The regional senior living company is full of passionate nurses who are making a difference for
residents every day. “I am amazed at the resiliency of these nurses,” said Mandy Taylor, RN,
senior vice president of clinical services. “When the going gets tough, nurses get tougher. They
are the backbone of the services we provide here at Morning Pointe and I am so proud to work
among these fine individuals.”

At Morning Pointe of East Hamilton, nurses were greeted Monday morning with a giant, colorful yard sign thanking them for choosing to work at Morning Pointe.

we made a sign big enough so you couldn’t miss it,” said Life Enrichment Director Leigha King.
“There really are no words to express what they mean to our Morning Pointe family.”
