Morning Pointe’s Devine trip

Devine’s Corn Maze in Harrodsburg was the day trip destination for Morning Pointe of Danville residents, who wanted to get their hands on some garden fresh goodness from the family-owned and operated farm. The senior living and memory care community enjoyed their fall trip so much, that they returned in the summer in search for succulent strawberries.

That afternoon, Nelda Harlow, Dennis McHugh, Leon Coleman and Sid Shaw stepped into the strawberry patch, gathering boxes of berries to bring back to Morning Pointe. Days later, the seniors washed and plucked the “nature’s candy” to prepare strawberry jam for everyone to enjoy.

Morning Pointe residents embrace mealtime as part of the Dining Services program. When sweetness is in season, the seniors enjoy trips to local farms and CSAs — an activity that reminds some of them of simpler times.

“The residents look forward to the trips we have planned throughout the summer,” says Nicole Walton, life enrichment director at Morning Pointe. “Our seniors enjoy activities that bring back fond memories of home. What better way to bring comfort than with food?”

Martina Devine, owner of Devine’s Corn Maze in Harrodsburg, KY, and Morning Pointe of Danville, KY, residents Nelda Harlow, Dennis McHugh, Leon Coleman and Sid Shaw, enjoy picking strawberries at the family-owned and operated farm.
