Who We Are
Founded by MacArthur Fellow Anne Basting, we are an international network of artists and caregivers committed to bringing joy to late life.
What We Do
As our bodies and minds change with age, people ask – “How can I connect with my mom? My clients? My neighbor?” TimeSlips says try imagination…
What is Meaningful and Creative Engagement?
Do you know someone who is isolated or perhaps wrestling with dementia? You want to engage but don’t know how?
Let us help. Ask a Beautiful Question and invite someone to imagine, using words, sounds, movements and images. Shift away from the expectation of memory – toward the freedom that imagination can bring.
Bring joy to the elders, families and staff you serve.
Explore meaningful educational experiences with elders.
Learn to creatively engage and connect with a loved one.
Our classic creative storytelling – you can say anything.
Inspire someone to think a little differently – with no right or wrong answers.
You can do these – no kidding. Even if you swear you are not creative.
Over a two year period, 12 Signature HealthCARE nursing homes became Creative Communities of Care. What does that mean? They collaborated with regional and national artists on the TimeSlips team to draw on and celebrate the creative strengths of elders, staff, and volunteers. Together they reimagine the story of Peter Pan and integrated the exploration into daily activities. The project culminated with the performance of an original play. Our CCC training is inspiring aging services providers of all shapes and sizes all across the United States!
