Pass­ing brightly col­ored bal­loons back and forth over the net were Morn­ing Pointe res­i­dents who are keep­ing their motor skills in check. The se­niors en­joy stay­ing ac­tive as as­so­ci­ates Re­becca Wil­liams and Ker­rie Eg­bert en­force only one rule -- to have fun.

“Not sure who is hav­ing the most fun, but you can hear the laugh­ter all the way down the halls,” says Mary Braden, Lan­tern pro­gram di­rec­tor. “We want to en­cour­age healthy mo­tion for our res­i­dents, and its easy when they are do­ing some­thing they en­joy.”

CAL­HOUN, Ga. -- Morn­ing Pointe of Cal­houn res­i­dents were treated to a per­for­mance from the Sound of Joy Choir of Dal­ton. The singers graced the com­mu­nity with fun and fel­low­ship, lift­ing their voices for the se­niors at the as­sisted liv­ing and Alzheimer’s mem­ory care com­mu­nity.

Mary Far­ley, Morn­ing Pointe res­i­dent, was al­ready fa­mil­iar with their mu­si­cal guest, as she has sang with the Sound of Joy Choir for many years.

“Mary’s face lit up when she saw her friends in the choir come by to visit,” says Lisa Cald­well, life en­rich­ment di­rec­tor at Morn­ing Pointe. “It’s al­ways won­der­ful to have lo­cal groups bring share their tal­ents to the res­i­dents. The in­ter­ac­tion is touch­ing for our se­niors.”
