The History of Kenton Pointe

Hospice of Hope had been serving communities in northern Kentucky and southern Ohio for over twenty years when the decision was made to evolve as a business and begin to fill new unmet needs in the Maysville community.  After conducting feasibility studies, researching other programs, and meeting with area government, the Hospice of Hope administrative staff and Board of Trusted officially decided to provide an assisted living facility to the Buffalo Trace region.

Hospice of Hope acquired 34-acres of land adjacent to Kenton Station Golf Course in Maysville, Kentucky and created a building plan using 25 of those acres, leaving the rest for future expansion.  In addition to the Kenton Point Assisted Living Community, Hospice of Hope decided to create a separate inpatient center called the Care Center at Kenton Pointe.  Though this was built on the same property as the Assisted Living Community, and is also operated by Hospice of Hope, these two projects are independent of one another.  After two years of planning, a groundbreaking ceremony was held on October 25, 2011, with the intention of completing all construction by late 2012.

Community leaders join together with their golden shovels at the groundbreaking ceremony.

The price of these two amazing projects has exceeded 9 million dollars, but has been underwritten by special low-interest loans from the USDA, a Community Development Block Grant from the state of Kentucky, and the gifts and support of many Hospice of Hope employees and friends.  Hospice of Hope is especially proud that its Board of Trustees and Strategic Planning Committee each had 100% participation in the building campaign.

Governor Steve Beshear presents a donation of $800,000 to Kavin Cartmell, Executive Director of Hospice of Hope, for the Kenton Pointe Assisted Living Project.

Approximately 1.5 million dollars of the project costs are still unfunded.  If you would like to contribute to the building campaign, please call (800) 928-4848.  Every gift is appreciated.
