Wednesday morning the Caldwell Zoo offered up more than just entertainment, it served as therapy.
Alzheimer's patients from Tyler's Alzheimer's Day Care took a trip to the zoo. They got to handle exotic animals like hissing cockroaches, African hedgehogs, and a boa constrictor. The visit to the zoo gave the patients a break from their daily routine.
Darby Brady has been the Director for the day care for the last two years. "I think they're getting a lot of stimulation being able to walk around, to see the animals, to be out and feel like they are in an environment that normally they couldn't be in."
