CALHOUN, Ga. — Seniors were spreading seeds of joy at Floyd Medical Center in Rome. The residents at Morning Pointe of Calhoun potted flowers for the patients at the hospital, filling each arrangement with love and happiness.
Sally White and Sue Moyer, residents at the assisted living and memory care community, were particularly excited to make the delivery, both sharing a passion for flowers.
“Our seniors enjoyed making the flower arrangements,” says Lisa Caldwell, life enrichment director at Morning Pointe. “This project was just our way of bringing the Spring season indoors to the patients.”
Since the beginning of the year, Morning Pointe assisted living and memory care communities across the Southeast have been paying it forward. From pet treats to potted plants, the goodwill of the seniors and associates inspired the “Make Your Mark” campaign — a yearlong project to give back 20,000 of community service in 2017. Already, they have given back 10,000 hours of volunteerism with no signs of slowing down.
