Testimonials

Our trainees explain the joy of creative engagement.

The biggest high point for me is, I have one resident that doesn't come out of her room much, so I do a room visit with her and when I visit she will ask me if I brought a story picture. Storytelling has helped bring her out of her shell, and it's something that she enjoys.

- Joyce W.; Activity Director, Ladysmith Care & Rehabilitation, Ladysmith, WI

Oh my goodness - the JOY and DELIGHT of the whole shared creative process is so uplifting - who can stop smiling? It affects everyone and ripples out.  

- Victoria Orlando, Certified Facilitator, Bridgewater, NJ

One of the participants proudly stated ‘I can’t remember, but here I can imagine’, which I found an incredibly moving testament to the power of this programme.

- Laura Menzies, Certified Facilitator, Falmouth, England
