My partner, Hank and I, have enjoyed every performance we have had the pleasure of giving to seniors in the Mid-South. Creative Aging has allowed us to bring a smile to many seniors who love the same music we do.
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.
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.
