Morning Pointe Senior Living residents in Chattanooga, Collegedale and Hixson (TN) made leaps and bounds during its fun-filled annual “Senior Olympics” at Morning Pointe of Chattanooga at Shallowford in Chattanooga.

Assisted living and memory care residents were categorized in teams, each created their own flag for the opening ceremony. The seniors — wearing shirts to celebrate the occasion — participated in multiple events; a corn hole competition and doughnut-eating contest were among a host of fun activities.

As part of the Life Enrichment and Meaningful Day™ programs, Morning Pointe encourages its assisted living and memory care residents to interact with their peers through fun, engaging activities and programs.

“It was great to see how much our residents enjoy this event year after year,” says Emma Myers, Life Enrichment Director at Morning Pointe of Hixson. “To keep our residents social, active and having fun is what we enjoy doing in all of our communities.”
