POWELL, Tenn. — Stilettos and peep-toes were on display at Morning Pointe of Powell, as the residents strutted their stuff, showing off the sharpest shoes during a “sit down party” at the assisted living and memory care community.

Marti and Liz, a local shoe store, donated shoes for the party. The residents tried on an assortment of high heels, featuring a broad range of colors, styles, patterns and designs — all while sitting down.

Over refreshments and hors d’oeuvres, the ladies kicked up their feet, admiring each other’s fashionable footwear. Some of the pumps were put on display.


“One of the residents told me, ‘The higher the heel, the better’,” said Pat Caron, executive director at Morning Pointe. “This was a fun way for the residents to reminisce about the days when they wore high heels.”

As part of the life enrichment program, Morning Pointe partners with local organizations to help the residents enjoy “Meaningful Days,” as they embrace fond memories while making new ones together.
