TimeSlips has partnered with the #ActivitiesStrong initiative led by Linked Senior to launch Shine Your Light – a celebration to illuminate the industry with creative care and celebrate activity and life enrichment professionals and their residents.
As soon as lockdowns started taking place in the United States back in March, TimeSlips began creating and sourcing resources that we could provide to you free of charge, during a time where physical distancing is still required. To help you navigate these resources better, we have compiled a list of them for you to easily access and share.
Are you a family member or someone interested in wanting to engage with someone living with Dementia? Join us Tuesday, December 15th for a very special afternoon!

The TimeSlips mission is to bring meaning and purpose to the lives of elders through creative engagement. Our organization aims to bring this mission to fruition through systemic change that places creativity at the center of care for older adults -- and especially older adults living with dementia.
But TimeSlips cannot make systemic change unless we acknowledge the roots of those systems. The brutal murder of George Floyd makes plain, once again, that American infrastructure of every kind is built on a foundation of racism.

Andew heard about the SAIR program by accident. Though he had never worked with elders before, he thought he'd try a new experience. Upon being placed at Luther Manor, Andrew quickly learned it was much different from the nursing home he'd envisioned. Andrew's story is one of courage, creativity, and compassion.
