Morning Pointe happenings

A sweet moment of bonding ensued, as Alice Rossell, Morning Pointe of Danville resident, and daughter Lori Mohan, kneaded the freshly made dough for a delicacy that brings rise to their family tradition.

Called Potica — pronounced po-teet-sa — the traditional Slovenian dessert is no rush job to prepare, taking a day to make in various steps. But it was all worth the wait, as the residents at the senior living and memory care community enjoyed every single nutty bite.

Morning Pointe’s life enrichment program helps residents embrace their family traditions through activities that are tailored to their individual interests and pastimes. For Rossell, this means sharing a sweet slice of Slovenia with the seniors and associates.

Kids from Centenary Methodist Church joined the seniors and associates in crafting handmade cards to show their moms that they care.
