  • Thursday, June 1, 2023

Morning Pointe at Happy Valley, the new assisted living and memory care campus in development in Walker County, is currently taking reservations for residents.

The senior community at 2989 Happy Valley Road in Rossville is part of an overall community redevelopment of the historic 300-acre Happy Valley Farms between Ridgeland High School and Rossville Middle School. It will be the 38th Morning Pointe Senior Living community and the company’s second campus in Georgia.

The building is slated to open in late 2023 and will offer 58 assisted living apartments and 24 memory care apartments specially designed for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss.

Morning Pointe at Happy Valley will offer clinical services, including:

• 24/7 nursing care and personal care services

• Medication assistance and reminders

• Periodic check-ins

• Personal grooming assistance, such as bathing or getting dressed

• Assistance with transferring to a bed or chair

• Escorting to meals and events

• Accommodations for no-salt-added and reduced-concentrated-sweets diets

• Incontinence management

On-site physical, occupational and speech therapy services will also be offered through The Weston Group.

Programming will include life enrichment such as arts and crafts, wellness offerings such as exercise classes, and intergenerational activities such as partnering with local schools.

The Lantern memory care wing will provide an array of Alzheimer’s and dementia care services, including innovative therapies such as Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care, Best Friends™ Approach and Morning Pointe’s own Meaningful Day – a purposeful memory care program providing structure to help residents feel safe and secure.

The campus will also feature Morning Pointe’s Farm to Table program with local, farm-fresh and seasonal ingredients.

Morning Pointe at Happy Valley will be hiring nurses, certified nursing assistants, resident assistants, housekeepers, dietary personnel, business office workers, maintenance, activity directors and more.

The Happy Valley farm and estate were established in 1935 by John L. Hutcheson, Jr., and were the site of an award-winning Jersey cattle and dairy farm before Mr. Hutcheson transitioned the property into a world- class American Saddlebred horse-breeding facility. Upon the death of Marion “Bit” Hutcheson, Mr. Vital took an interest in the property’s unique legacy and acquired it from the heirs.

Founded in 1996 by health care entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow, Morning Pointe Senior Living operates assisted living, personal care and Alzheimer’s memory care communities in five southeastern states. In the greater Chattanooga area, Morning Pointe operates assisted living and memory care communities in Chattanooga, Collegedale, Ooltewah, Hixson, Athens and Calhoun.
