Review for Creative Aging Memphis, Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Creative Aging is a wonderful organization that I've been privileged to work with for the past 10 years.
It affords me the experience of working with diverse groups of seniors, and connecting with them in a very personal, even intimate, way. The best shows are when I feel a deep connection being made between those listening and the music. Sometimes they will sing, or just move with their own particular styling and it's rather thrilling to see it, feel it, and be a part of it. I think the residents of these senior facilities are being provided a look at their past lives & loves & passions; presenting music is a very real way of connecting these dots, as music is so reminiscent of earlier times, so nostalgic, and also
spiritual in its own way. I'm thankful for these times of sharing, and I can only hope I am getting better at it as I age. It's such fun to share with these folks. They inspire me to nurture.

Review for Creative Aging Memphis, Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began to play piano for Creative Aging in 2005 or so. Some of my most fulfilling times have been entertaining the clients/senior that it serves. From retirement homes to alzheimer centers, and every venue in between, it is sheer joy and delight to entertain these folks with special needs, most of whom are homebound a great deal of the time. Creative Aging does marvelous things in providing different types of art experiences for older people. It brings stimulation, aesthetics, & vitality to lots of people that need it, and thrive because of it. I feel very blessed and thankful to be a part of this wonderful non-profit called Creative Aging. Diana Stein
