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 Trustees 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.
