Putting the Heart in Art (Cambridge House)

September 9, 2019 (Hildebran, NC) ─ Residents and staff at Cambridge House, a DePaul Senior Living Community in Hildebran, recently channeled a “spark of creativity” to create a family tree out of their handprints in celebration of National Assisted Living Week, celebrated September 8-14.

“I hear them going down the halls saying ‘Look, there’s my hand!’ and they start to laugh,” said Houston. “It’s a great feeling knowing I can be part of bringing laughter and joy to their everyday lives.”
