COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Morning Pointe of Columbia residents are ready for spring. And what better way to welcome the season than with cute, cuddly baby chicks and ducks? The seniors at the assisted living and Alzheimer’s memory care community enjoyed meeting their new feathered friends, thanks to life enrichment director Bridget Barger, who owns the baby animals.

Morning Pointe invites pet owners, zoo groups and animal shelters to bring their animal friends to share the many benefits of pet therapy, making for a “purr-fect” afternoon as part of the life enrichment and Meaningful Day(tm) programs.
