Creative Aging not only enhances the lives of so many seniors in our community but also supports so many individual artists in the community by using them for all the programming presented in the senior citizen facilities, community centers and other venues that they service.

I believe in non-profits. They do the work that everyone says needs to be done. Non-profits take the ideas, recruit the volunteers, roll-up sleeves and get down to business. Creative Aging Memphis is one of those non-profits. The unique thing is they actually serve two diverse communities: seniors and artists. In what I think is a brilliant idea, Creative Aging figured out how to educate, entertain and involve seniors by hiring artists, including musicians, dancers, singers, potters, story-tellers, painters and more. The two groups need each other in order to grow, thrive and maybe even survive. And Creative Aging puts them together. I am thrilled to work with, volunteer for, and support wholly, Creative Aging Memphis. I am proud that Memphis is a city full of seniors and artists, all of whom we need, and through Creative Aging, we also cherish.

We need so many things in life: food and shelter for the body, love and art for the soul. We need them when we are young and it doesn't stop when we are old. The wonderful thing is, no matter what the age, Creative Aging Memphis provides love and art for the soul and helps provide food and shelter for the body. Our musicians and artists come in all sizes and ages. Working for Creative Aging helps pay some of their bills. Working with Creative Aging exposes them to a world of love and gratitude. Then there are the seniors who get a chance to sing, dance, draw or just dream after a visit from these musicians and artists. Their world becomes a little bigger and a whole lot brighter. Creative Aging Memphis gives everyone, entertainers and seniors alike, a chance to live and live well, no matter what their age.

I am a member of a Senior Center where artists from Creative Aging often entertain. They provide well known talented local artists for the entertainment of our members, many of whom are limited in their social activities.

Also, I am a member of a Senior Center that is fortunately connected with Creative Aging and is often entertained by the many artists provided through them.

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.
