CREATIVE AGING MEMPHIS
January 19, 2011

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.
