Memory Care Reviews for The Lantern at Morning Pointe of Lexington

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I found a facility here in Lexington, and my mother is in Morning Pointe right now. Everything is going fairly well. Overall, I've been pleased. They've been very open and very helpful. They do lots of group activities, puzzles, sorting, counting, bingo, memory games, singing, reading the bible, and watching videos. They walk around, and they have exercise people who come in everyday.

I visited this facility

The Lantern at Morning Pointe was a newer facility. It was very clean. It probably provided a few more options, but I thought the main description I would give was that the Lantern was bigger and more wide open. We actually took my mother-in-law to view it -- however, she liked the other facility we visited. It was probably because even though the Lantern appeared to be big open spaces, it wasn't that overwhelming. The rooms were equally beautiful. The hallway was twice the width and the ceilings were higher. They had warm color carpet, color wallpapers, light fixture that would have been homey and not institutional. That was still good, but I thought that with my mother-in-law's sight and hearing impairments, she liked to be more contained, and those wider hallways and higher ceilings probably just overwhelmed her a little bit. Again, the staff was very friendly. They were very welcoming. It looked like there were activities going on. There were actually a few more rooms dedicated to activities that might make a person with Alzheimer's feel at home, like a kitchen area that had towels, things that they could fold and dishes they could put away, kindly of like a playroom almost.

The Lantern opened up three months after I placed my mom in an assisted living. I was told that it was cheaper which is always a plus. It was also closer to where I lived which is much better. I took a little tour and talked to people there. I decided to give it a try and moved my mom in November. From the very beginning, I notice that she is better taken care of. She seems to be cleaner. The staff works more with me because mentally, my mom has no idea who I am. She cannot answer questions appropriately. She needs to be taken to the bathroom more often. She can feed herself though. She's never been one who participates in activities but they do a lot of activities there. However, I don't know if it is the norm in every Lantern facility but everybody needs get out of the wheelchair and sit in a regular chair during meal time. Why can't the wheelchair be wheeled right up the table? Some of the residents are large and are getting to a point where they can't maneuver their legs as well. It is also hard for the workers. On the other hand, I would say that twenty years from now, The Lantern will still be bright and sparkling new in appearance because of the way it is made. The lighting that comes in makes a difference. Overall, I love that my mom is there. I always tell people that it is a great place to be.

Every single person who worked there, from the executive, to the maintenance and to the nurse, takes time to check and visit with my mother. My mom is in memory care. She is in a good sized room. She has a space as plenty as she needs. It has a large bathroom and a nice closet. It looks out onto a courtyard. My mother said that one of her favorite parts is the food. She loves the fact that she gets dessert twice a day. Their dining room is light, fresh, and clean.

My mother was recently transferred here. My brother says the difference in care that she had received at her previous residence and the care she receives at The Lantern is like night and day. Mom is happy, responsive and active again. After a visit, my brother can leave Mom feeling confident she is getting quality care. I hope to see her soon; meanwhile I, too, rest easier knowing she's in good hands.
