Let your imagination soar.
Start telling stories
TimeSlips opens storytelling to everyone by replacing the pressure to remember with the freedom to imagine.
What is TimeSlips?
We bring meaning to long-term care through creative programming.
We specialize in positive, creative engagement with people with memory loss.
When memory loss separates us from people we love, the emotional, symbolic language of the imagination can bring us back together.
We offer information, support, storytelling software (free!), individual and organizational training, and consulting.
