The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Lenoir City (TN) executive director Lisa Harvey, receptionist Angela Montgomery, and business office manager Sacha Hankey snuggle up with a litter of precious boxer puppies. In order to socialize the puppies before they are adopted, Montgomery brought them to the memory care community for some cuddle therapy time with the residents and associates. “I don’t know who benefitted more—the puppies or us,” Lantern program director Maggie Devaney says with a laugh. “We are big dog lovers and don’t get to enjoy time with new puppies very often. Our residents and associates found it very comforting to spend time with them.”
