Working with Creative Aging Midsouth is wonderful! As an Activities Director, I have had my fill of endless phone calls and interviews when it came to hiring entertainment for monthly parties. Now all I have to do is email my request and it's all set! They have a huge list of multi-talented artists that provides opportunities for our audience members to stay connected to the community, interact with the artists, reminisce about the music’s meaning in their lives, and dance, sing, clap, or simply move to the music. Creative Aging Midsouth IS working to improve quality of life for OUR Mid-South elders by providing access to experiences in the arts!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

various ways, but seeing the faces of our residents as they are entertained says it all.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

open the talent to more than those that play instruments or sing.

All CAM programs are accessible to seniors regardless of physical or cognitive frailty because we bring the performances to them where they live!
We are an assisted living community whose residents benefit from the performances of artists in our community.
CAM performances provide
opportunities for audience members to:
stay connected to the community
interact with the artists
reminisce about the music

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

our assisted living community with seniors participation.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make the communication with participants more transparent and on a regular basis. I think the constant interaction will benefit the organization with more visiblity to all not just those who are paying to participate.

Our clients/ residents really enjoy the Entertainers that come to Ave Maria Home . The clients/ residents enjoy the music, love to dance and just seem to have a great time . The Entertainers are very professional and they seem to enjoy interacting with the clients/ residents. We have had some Entertainers touch our hearts with their songs and their words of wisdom. Please keep up the good work.

We have been utilizing Creative Aging for several years now.
The quality of the entertainment and the ease of booking has made our monthly performances a real crowd pleaser.
All of the entertainers are nice to work with, and our audience enjoys the fact that each one takes the time to
interact with them.
The professionalism of the staff of Creative Aging is noteworthy as well!
We will continue to work with them for many years.
