CLIFTON FORGE, Va. – One local assisted living facility is proving picture day is not just for the kids.
The Highland House in Alleghany County is getting a lot of attention for its fall photos.
A local photographer, Jane and Mae, took whimsy pictures of residents.
The home wanted to provide a fun activity for the seniors after a difficult year and surprise their families with a keepsake.
“This was one opportunity we could really get back to having fun and it was so awesome to see the residents, like you said, in kind of a more youthful state,” said Schuyler Fury, Highland House Interim Administrator.
“Everything they do here shows us that we still have value. That was nice. It was a pretty day and they gave me a bunch of leaves to throw in the air. I was just having a ball,” said Ada Mattox, resident.
Before getting their pictures taken some residents even got their hair and make-up done.
