LENOIR CITY, Tenn. — The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Lenoir City residents and families have created colorful canvases for a cause. On March 30, the memory care community will host an art auction, featuring the seniors own paintings, to help raise funds for the upcoming Alzheimer’s Tennessee walk in Knoxville.

With the help of Maggie Dunuway, representative from Caris Healthcare, the residents painted purposeful patterns, finding enjoyment as they embraced the many benefits of art therapy.

“The auction will give the families of The Lantern the opportunity to purchase their loved one’s art while making a contribution to our walk team,” says Maggie Devaney, Lantern program director at The Lantern at Morning Pointe. “This is also a really great way for our residents to participate.”
