Accolades for Alley Spring Mill painting

Fulton resident Wanda Wickell’s painting “Alley Spring Mill” will be featured in the 2018 Art is Ageless calendar. 

“Even though I’m not a professional artist, in December of 2016 at 94 years old I had a desire to try to capture the beauty of lovely Alley Spring Mill at Emmince, Mo. I don’t think any painting, certainly not mine, can do it justice. For years, my late husband, Joe, and I collected the history of Missouri’s mills. Believe me, you haven’t seen Missouri unless you’ve visited our beautiful mill country! Go and enjoy!”  read more

Thriving in a place that’s safe and comfortable, surrounded by cozy memories, is a natural desire of older adults. We treasure independence and want a space to call our own, and we prefer that place to reflect the person we’ve become. We understand that aging bids compromise, and once 65 hits, the changes bring reminders that we’re no longer the same. We don’t move as quickly, we don’t multitask as well, nor do we easily adapt. Those are the simple cues. As we age, the physical and mental challenges delivered through loss, immobility and dependence are the ones that put us at higher risks. read more
