POWELL, Tenn. — For just a few hours, Morning Pointe of Powell was a hoppin’ diner. Slinging burgers and slurping malt milkshakes were the residents at the assisted living and memory care community — the men in their cool Letterman jackets, the ladies sporting their cat-eye frames and poodle skirts.

But the night wasn’t complete without live entertainment. Two for the Road, a couple from Knoxville, brought the jukebox, performing favorite tunes from the ’50s as everyone boogied to the music.

“The residents truly enjoyed this blast from the past,” says Pat Caron, executive director at Morning Pointe. “We look for creative ways to bring the community together as we remember old memories while making new ones.

Every month, Morning Pointe hosts fun, themed events for residents and their families as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day™ programs.
