Berryville, VA (PRWEB) September 11, 2017
Art Without Boundaries® is a nationally known innovative, multi-modality arts program helping seniors and all ages with cognitive or physical disabilities experience the joy of learning something new and feeling a sense of joy and pride in the process. To mark the 4 year anniversary of this program at Greenfield of Berryville, Catherine Fetterman, Virginia's first Certified MnemeTherapist and member of the Art Without Boundaries Association, will be honoring their staff and residents during National Assisted Living Week with a special celebration and 45 minute presentation at Greenfield of Berryville. This event will take place on September 14th at 1:45 p.m, and all are welcome. Following the celebration, Ms. Fetterman will be giving an interactive presentation about the art of Norman Rockwell, using his paintings to celebrate the theme of National Assisted Living Week: "Families are Forever".
“Greenfield's support and leadership has made it possible for all of their residents, as well as many others in the surrounding communities, to experience and learn about the gift of this life-enriching program. As our country looks to remember our seniors during National Assisted Living Week, I thought it would be a great time to celebrate what their residents have made, and the impact Greenfield's support of this program is having near and far.” – Catherine Fetterman
