We strive to creatively engage, inspire and involve each of our residents through experiences that incorporate their individual passions and interests. Take a look at some of our truly inspiring programs.
When someone moves into our campus, they don’t leave behind their passions, their hobbies, or their insights. They bring with them everything that makes them unique. It’s our job to learn everything we can about each resident and encourage them to continue to express themselves, ask questions, learn, and grow. We’re constantly amazed by what we discover.
Our campuses are home to so many talented men and women; chefs and painters, gardeners and explorers, and quite a few poets. For Poetry Month, we asked our residents to share their favorite poem, or submit a poem they have written themselves. We’re showcasing both below. Enjoy!
Assisted living resident, Bill Davis, is a poet and has had his book of poems published in the Library of Congress. He loves writing, and he loves sharing his work. His two favorites are "This Old House" and “Echoes” which is about his sister.
Hillard - aka Blake - Newsome loved this poem he wrote because it makes him laugh. As he reads it aloud, he always chuckles!! Since childhood he’s enjoyed expressing himself through words. He even wrote his own book of poems!
Ken loves poetry. He’s written an entire book of poems, in fact. When asked to pick the poem he loved the most, it was extremely difficult for him to do so. He asked us to choose instead. We hope you enjoy this poemby Ken as much as we do.
Please enjoy this poem, "Memories", written by Frank M., a resident at one of our Lexington, Ky campuses.
A few of our residents shared their favorite poems with us.
Assisted Living resident Joan R. at Hearthstone Health Campus always loved the poem "Little Orphan Annie" by James Whitcomb Riley. "Little Orphan Annie took care of everyone. I had such a feeling for poor little orphan Annie. She worked really hard and helped her family so much." - Joan
