Morning Pointe of Greeneville (TN) resident Marie Ricker meets her new student partner, Morgan Fisher-Spillman of the Greeneville Adventist Academy ASSIST program. For the past four years, the assisted living community has partnered with GAA’s ASSIST program to help create intergenerational bonds between students and seniors, allowing both to learn and grow from the other’s wisdom and perspective. “We’re so thankful to be able to partner with Greeneville Adventist Academy, especially with the ASSIST program,” says Morning Pointe life enrichment director Amanda Buech. “Our residents find it really fulfilling to be able to mentor a young person, and it’s a great opportunity to teach students about the importance of empathy and service.”
