Alzheimer's Day Services of Memphis, Inc.
November 26, 2012

Alzheimer's Day Services offers a program that is both critical to Caregiver respite and is unparrelled in offering the participant a safe place to enjoy actvities and peer socialization. From baking cookies to studying current events, from exercise to gardening, the participants are always happy and busy! When yoiu visit the center, Dorothy's Place, you find an attitude of caring and compassion. Always focused on helping participants maintain integrity, many are called volunteers and some even believe that they are on staff. And the staff respects and embraces this concept! No where are Caregivers more welcomed and honored. From support groups to Caregivers Holiday Luncheons and seasonal cookouts, the family of participants are loved and cared for, just as participants are. Truly a family environment, the energy here is all positive. Indeed, an organization worthy of an award!!!

CREATIVE AGING MEMPHIS
October 16, 2012

We never ever, no matter what age, lose the need for connecting with others. When we struggle cognitively, this becomes more difficult. To watch an older adult connect with others through music and art is unbelievably moving. It is nothing short of a miracle for someone suffering with dementia. When I watch a performance sponsored by Creative Aging and I see this kind of miracle, I am so proud. This is when I know that our mission is being carried out every day!!

CREATIVE AGING MEMPHIS
May 21, 2012

We never stop loving the arts..no matter what age. The great feeling that music, story telling, visual arts and other art mediums give us is priceless. Many Senior adults are limited with mobility issues, financial restraints and other issues that keep them from enjoying the above. That is where Creative Aging MidSouth steps in. CAM bridges the gap by providing quality performances and demonstrations to Senior adults. They never have to pay, make reservations or even leave their residence. CAM comes to them. If you could only see their faces, the sparkle in their eyes, the humming along; then you would see why CAM exists.
