CREATIVE AGING MEMPHIS
January 20, 2011

I became familiar with Creative Aging in the Spring of 2009. With my fondness of Elders, I quickly paid attention and discovered that Creative Aging was creating such a "need" in our Community.

I became a Member of the Board in June 2009. Quickly enough I learned even more about this organization and was so touched and happy whenever I experienced performances. More importantly, watching the recipients was fabulous!

Interestingly enough, I became employed at at the Ave Nursing Home in Bartlett, TN in June 2010. I am the Activities Director of the Nursing Home.

Upon arrival, Creative Aging was already established with Ave Maria and acts were already booked. I saw even more excitement from the Residents than I had ever seen as just a Board Member. It was so much more "up close and personal" to my delight! In fact, the other day at our January Resident birthday party, one of the Residents said, "the best performers we have always come from Creative Aging". This Resident had no idea that I happened to be on the Board.

I guess the point is, it's not just me loving what I hear, see, experience. It is, if fact, the recipients. The ones that matter.
