I visited this facility

The Lantern at Morning Pointe of Frankfort is a very, very nice facility, especially if your family has dementia. They have a doctor on site. They have a hair salon, they have a podiatrist there, they do a lot of activities and they have a chef on staff. I only saw one room, but it was a nice size room. It's a very clean facility. It's all private pay so it's a little expensive for us. It is a very nice place and the people we talked to were very nice. They were doing an activity with a basketball, they had music going and the people were cheering. I would take my dad there if we had that kind of money, but it was a little pricey. The staff who gave the tour was very nice.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My husband is at The Lantern at Morning Pointe of Frankfort. The nurses and aides that work there are more on their toes and are more aware of what my husband is doing than what they knew over where he was for five weeks. They've been good. He gets three meals and snacks, and he is getting his medication on a regular basis. He is getting physical and occupational therapy and a little bit of speech therapy. The only way you can see him is through a visual visit because we are not allowed in through the front door because of Covid. It makes it hard not just to the family, but to the person that is in there. When he falls or if he is having an agitated morning, they'll call me and see if I can calm him down. They've been very helpful not just for us but for him. He does not know where he is; he always thinks he is in a local motel. The other day, he told me that they were keeping him in jail. From what I can see virtually, the room comes furnished with a bed, a night table and a chair. They prefer you bring your own stuff, but they have access to stuff people leave there, so they took care of all that. They even picked him up from the hospital. They've been friendly and nice, and they've been good to him. They call me if he falls or has a bad morning. The only complaint I have is that it is too expensive. He is very picky, but he enjoys the food.

My aunt is at The Lantern at Morning Pointe of Frankfort. She has physical therapy and she can’t do much because she has dementia. They serve three meals a day including snacks. They are very concerned with my aunt. I like the way the aides talk to the patients - with respect and dignity. They’re really concerned about the people in their care.

My Dad has lived at Morning Pointe for 2 and a half years. I especially like the small, family style atmosphere. The staff and managers really pay attention to individual needs of each resident. I have great confidence in and appreciation of the excellent nursing staff.

I visited this facility

The staff seemed very friendly, and eager to assist the residents. We were greeted promptly, and with a smile. The variety of amenities was very pleasing. They have many 'life enriching' activities every day, including some type of devotional service every day; which is very important to my grandmother. Plus, the kitchen offered 3 meals per day as well as a self-service beverage station. There was a refrigerator and a microwave in every apartment in case someone doesn't want to go to the dining room, which was elegant looking. We were offered lunch while we were there, and the food was surprisingly good. The administrator seemed a little distant during out tour, like her mind was somewhere else. I also liked that if my grandmother's dementia continues to progress to a level where she needs more assistance and/or security, they have a facility right next door, called The Lantern, that is an assisted living facility for persons with Alzheimer's. They are more secure in that the doors are locked at all times in case someone wants to wander.
