LENOIR CITY, Tenn. — Residents at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Lenoir City hosted a 40s-themed Family Night event that brought back a blast from the past. Each day was spent in another decade for the seniors at the Alzheimer’s memory care community, as associates dressed the part to show the way down “memory lane.”


Magazines, photo albums and even 40s fare were all on display as Morning Pointe celebrated National Assisted Living Week together.

Maggie Devaney, Lantern program director, says the event was a top hit.

“This event sparked many memories,” Devaney says. “Our residents enjoyed it so much that we’re going to do a ‘remembering the decade’ hour once a week.”

Morning Pointe never misses a moment to celebrate seniors through fun annual observances as part of the Meaningful Day™ program.
