There is nothing more rewarding than caring for something and watching it grow. The members of the garden club at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Louisville (KY) know this all too well. The members of the garden club tend to their own garden at the memory care community, where they grow both flowers and produce to use in their meals.
“We love getting to help with the “Farm to Table” products,” says Derek Combs, the Lantern Program Director at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Louisville.
In addition to the fruits and vegetables harvested from their own garden, the residents of The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Louisville also dine on fresh produce from local farms. Morning Pointe is proud to partner with local farms across the Southeast to bring farm-fresh fruits and vegetables to the dinner table for our senior living and memory care residents. “Farm to Table” is a part of our Purposeful Programming at Morning Pointe, as favorite foods can help stimulate memories, recalling positive life experiences.
