It has been a great experience to be one the performers for creative aging and to have the opportunity to see how much our elders enjoy
music. When the performances ocurred they gather to have a good time, to sing along and sometimes even dance. My favorites are the birthday parties, it's
priceless to be there to sing and celebrate the lives of those that gave their work to the community and that now are retired but shouldn't be forgotten.
I thank CAM so much for all their efforts to improve our seniors quality of life.

Experience it everytime I go to perform at a retirement home. They enjoy and come to talk to us and make sure we know it.

I would like to see more music programs for them, a music class for example, or forming a band and having them get together to rehearse and play music.

Creative Aging Memphis provides much needed interactive programming for seniors in residential centers. All of the programs from CAM allow residents to attend events that, depending on their mobilility, they may otherwise miss if required to attend "off-campus." Even participants who have cognitive disabilities show signs of recognition during a musical performance. I have personally witnessed reactions from residents that are nothing short of miraculous. The family members that are sometimes with the seniors at those times become overjoyed to see reactions from their loved ones.

I have worked for several years with Creative Aging as a Board Member and still am impressed with the work that we do. Creative Aging provides musical entertainment and visual art workshops at senior centers, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. I have visited some of these facilities and observed the happiness, joy and memories that come from hearing the music and also how art has brought out creativity in our senior adults. Periodically, we have musicians join MIFA volunteers when they deliver Meals on Wheels . What a surprise the music along with theirdaily meal has brought to the homebound.

I was Adult Services Director at one of the community centers that provided programs for senior adults. Creative Aging sponsored many of these and the seniors looked forward to the musical programs. Creative Aging pays the local musicians who are part of our group as well.

Creative Aging Memphis is a wonderful organization that brings QUALITY entertainment to the senior citizen community. Music is one of the most lasting, and emotionally driven important parts of life. Music can relieve pain, stress, and bring healing to senior citizens in a nursing home community. Music provides caregivers with an important boost to their efforts.

Many activities directors, while they are grateful for volunteers who provide music, recognize that the quality isn't always the best. Creative Aging allows them to bring in professionals at a fraction of the cost.

For performers, being able to support their craft financially allows more opportunities for them to give back to the community.

Creative Aging of the MidSouth
I wear two hats. As a member of an ensemble who provides programs for our senior members of our community, my heart is warmed with the broad smiles and participation of our audience members. As a resident of a retirement facility I know my community members look
forward to the quality of the programs which are provided. Creative Aging makes difference.
