University of Indianapolis Occupational Therapy Students at the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home

The Abbie Hunt Bryce Home was fortunate enough to have four students in the Occupational Therapy program at the University of Indianapolis spend time working with the residents at the Home.

The UIndy students decided to implement an art project that allowed the residents to really express themselves as well as their thoughts and feelings for the Home. The first step in completing the project was an interview with each resident. During the interviews, UIndy students were able to capture meaningful stories and identify theme words that described and conveyed significance of the Home.

Then, the residents were able to design hearts with their choice of colored sand. The residents theme words were written around the hearts and the final project was placed within a silhouette of a home to represent the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home.

The final result of the project was very emotional and meaningful for everyone involved: the residents, the students, and the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home staff. 

The residents described the Home as “welcoming and therapeutic”, “generous”, “helpful and loving”, “entertaining” and “my missing home”.

Morning Light and Abbie Hunt Bryce Home staff lovingly thank the University of Indianapolis students for giving their time and talents to the Home and for creating such a meaningful legacy project.
