Mission: Creative Aging Mid-South improves quality of life for Mid-South seniors by providing access to experiences in the arts. We accomplish that by hiring local professional artists to perform and teach seniors in nursing homes, retirement communities, adult day programs and senior centers, ensuring that even the frailest seniors maintain an enriching connection to the arts.
Results: Since beginning programming in 2005, Creative Aging has presented more than 5,000 performances and art-making workshops at long-term care and retirement communities, senior centers, and adult daycare programs. In doing so, we have paid more than $725,000 in performance fees to Memphis artists, and brought the arts alive for 30,000 seniors.
Target demographics: seniors continue to have access to the arts where they live
Direct beneficiaries per year: more than 6,000 seniors at 50+ residential communities in the Mid-South
Geographic areas served: the Mid-South
Programs: musical performances, art-making workshops, personal story-telling, and drumming

Rating: 5 stars  

I have the distinct privilege of being associated with Creative Aging Mid-South. This fabulous organization provides a key service to seniors in the communities where they live and gather. Through the arts, seniors find the pleasures in life, and often have the gift of remembering regenerated for a period of time, as they clap and sing and dance and sculpt and listen to storytelling. What a wonderful service to our aging population, and what a treasure this is to the Mid-South community.
