Morning Pointe of Powell (TN) resident June Vance shares a hug with two of her new “granddaughters” from the Girl Scouts of Emory Valley. After several years of regular activities together, the Girl Scouts decided to formally adopt the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community’s residents as their grandparents. The adoption ceremony took place at Morning Pointe and included a formal contract between the scouts and the residents and a memorial plaque to commemorate the occasion. “The Girl Scouts started coming when our community first opened and have always called the residents their grandparents, but this was a way of making it official,” says Morning Pointe life enrichment director Taylor Collins. “With the holiday season coming up, the girls wanted to make sure the residents knew that they were loved—and now, they have over 300 granddaughters. It was such a special moment!”
