FRANKLIN, IN. — Franklin College’s Gerontology Class came to an end as the students showed off their final presentations. Because the class has spent a tremendous amount of time at Morning Pointe of Franklin, the residents at the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community were welcomed to see the final work that the students had accomplished.
Family members of the residents were invited, making the project presentations an event. At the end of the day, many tears were shed. Though the class was only a semester, the memories will last a lifetime.
Morning Pointe embraces the many known benefits of intergenerational activity, as kids, teens, and young adults are invited to spend quality time with seniors as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day(tm) programs.
