FRANKFORT, KY — Residents at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Frankfort enjoyed raised their pinkies while sipping tea with Capital Day Private School students.
As part of the life enrichment program, the memory care community invites schools to visit the residents, as the young people enjoy fun intergenerational activities with the seniors.
During the “Mad Hatter Tea Party,” Mrs. Julie Renner’s first and second grade students baked and served cookies for the residents, and proudly showed off their reading skills by reading “Alice in Wonderland.”
The day ended with music therapy, as the volunteers played sing-a-long songs on the piano for the seniors and the students to enjoy.
