Morning Pointe at Happy Valley, the new assisted living and memory care campus in development in Walker County, will start offering tours of the building to interested families on Monday.
Associates will conduct “Dusty Boot Tours” leading up to the community’s opening to residents, allowing potential residents and their families to see inside the building before reserving an apartment. The address is 2989 Happy Valley Road in Rossville.
“We are so excited to be opening the doors to the community, starting with a sneak peek of the amazing progress the community has made over the last several months,” said Kristen Weitz, community relations director at Morning Pointe at Happy Valley.
“Reservations are happening fast, and with each apartment type having its own unique qualities, this is the ideal time to reserve your perfect space.”
The new campus 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. The senior community is part of an overall community redevelopment of the historic 300-acre Happy Valley Farms. It will be the 38th Morning Pointe Senior Living community and the company’s second campus in Georgia (with the other in Calhoun).
To arrange a tour, call Ms. Weitz at 706-916-2777.
Building progress continues on track for a late 2023 opening, and the community is currently hiring
nurses, certified nursing assistants, resident assistants, cooks and other roles.
The 300-acre 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, and later a world-class American
Saddlebred horse-breeding facility. Greg A. Vital, co-founder and president of Morning Pointe Senior Living, purchased the farm from the Happy Valley Estate in 2020 for preservation and development. The campus is located across the road from the barn, between Ridgeland High School and Rossville Middle School. Leaders at the community anticipate many intergenerational activities between the students and the residents.
Clinical services at the campus will include 24/7 nursing care and personal care services, medication
assistance and reminders, periodic check-ins, personal grooming assistance, assistance with transferring to a bed or chair, escorting to meals and events, incontinence management and more. 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.
“We are thrilled to be able to invite interested seniors and their families to take a look inside this beautiful building on this historic site,” said Mr. Vital. “It won’t be long now before we will be opening our doors for residents to move in and call Morning Pointe at Happy Valley home.”
