Residents at Morning Pointe of Lexington, Morning Pointe of Lexington-East and The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence witnessed a rare celestial event as the Great American Solar Eclipse made its path across the Southeast. It’s likely that many of the residents hadn’t witnessed the heavenly spectacle since 1979.

Some Morning Pointe seniors, associates, families and volunteers camped out in the courtyards at the personal care and Alzheimer’s memory care communities while practicing solar eclipse viewing safety with the help of ISO-certified glasses. Others observed the spectacle indoors on a projector screen, celebrating with festive hats, decor and snacks.

Morning Pointe’s life enrichment and Meaningful Day™ programs give seniors the opportunity to enjoy new experiences with friends, peers and loved ones.
