The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Collegedale celebrated “Make a Difference in Children Week,” inviting local home-schooled children and their own great-grandchildren to create their very own lollipops.

The children even got a surprise science lesson as they witnessed a cool dry ice exhibit.

As part of the Meaningful Day™ program, Morning Pointe invites area children to the memory care community to take part in fun intergenerational activities. Both young and old appreciate the meaningful interaction, as they learn, socialize and enjoy quality time together.
