Dorthea Bates is Elmcroft of Hendersonville's artist in Heartland Village Memory Care Unit. She is 94 years old, and has a host of beautiful pictures decorating her room that she has painted. She agreed to put some of the pictures on display for our families and friends to see. She was set up with her paintings in our front hall for all our residents and visitors to see. She sat there so proud, and just beamed as people would compliment her on her work. She is not able to paint anymore, but she still gets a lot of joy looking at her beautiful work.
