Improvisational storytelling program uses imagination, not memory
The idea: Have some fun! Timeslips, the improvisational storytelling program, uses imagination not memory.
I'm Elliott Walker, working on behalf of TimeSlips.org, a resource for people with dementia and their professional and family caregivers, based in the US.
TimeSlips.org opens the fun of storytelling to EVERYONE by replacing the pressure to remember with the freedom to imagine. Available FREE online at www.timeslips.org, people with dementia, caregivers and far-flung family can collaborate as "creativity pen pals" to improvise freeform stories based on fun photo prompts. A great way to bond, enjoy each other's company, improve communication and engagement.
Great for family caregivers, grandchildren and extended family, and professional caregivers such as activity directors at adult day centers and in long-term care. Professionals can get online training, also at timeslips.org. (Training is not needed for free public access to the site.) More than 2,000 facilitators already trained.
