Tele-Stories invites elders into creative and engaging conversations from the comfort of their own homes. Building from the concept of “well check calls” which are meant to address basic physical needs, Tele-Stories tends to social and emotional wellbeing by using creativity to forge connections and reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.
TimeSlips secured a $100,000 grant from the Milwaukee Civic Response grant program to support 10 Milwaukee-based artists to offer Tele-Stories to 10 older adults. Artists delivered 30-minute calls over 12 weekly sessions and the results were amazing.
TimeSlips offers its training and special online resources to organizations as part of an annual membership. The All Access Membership is the only plan that includes individual training and certification to become a Certified TimeSlips Facilitator.
