TULLAHOMA, Tenn. — Morning Pointe of Tullahoma residents enjoy ample puppy kisses, thanks to volunteer Nancy Lawrence, who brings her furry and four-legged friends for the seniors to pet, hug and love.

The assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community look forward to visits from their animal friends once a month, embracing the many benefits of pet therapy as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day™ programs.
