How to get involved

a few clear steps and ideas

TimeSlips is infusing creativity into care relationships and across care systems to bring meaning and joy to elders wherever they live and whatever their abilities.

This means there are many ways to get involved!  

TimeSlips offers training and support to families, students and volunteers, and any organization serving older adults, from nursing homes to Meals on Wheels and museum education programs.

You can simply use the Creativity Center, or train as an individual or organization and join our inspiring international network of people changing the way we experience aging and dementia. 

Encourage your organization to become a Creative Community of Care.

Share our What is TimeSlips? flyer with local care organizations.

Donate to our Innovation Fund to help bring our programs to families across the world.

Visit our Creativity Center (Resources) and invite a friend or family member to imagine with you.

Stay connected - sign up for our newsletter below or follow us on social media.
