We created this short animation to explain a bit about the TimeSlips approach. Do you know someone who is isolated or perhaps wrestling with dementia? You want to engage but don't know how?
Let us help. Ask a Beautiful Question and invite someone to imagine, using words, sounds, movements and images. Shift away from the expectation of memory - toward the freedom that imagination can bring.
Distributed by Attainment Company, this beautifully designed journal features 10 prompts that can be used multiple times to inspire stories.
Coming Soon! A TimeSlips Certified Facilitator offers three 30-minute creative engagement sessions by phone, resulting in a digital piece of art (audio or visual).
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.
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.
So many people with dementia are told that they need to try to remember certain things or that it is negative that they are changing cognitively. I think this approach is so wonderful because it throws the dementia stigma out of the window and makes a person with dementia just a person again.
As part of our mission to make creative engagement available to all, our Creativity Center is free to use without training. We think the training will be enormously helpful - but it’s not required.
There is some nice, solid research out there now telling us that yes, this kind of creative engagement has significant impact on the lives of people with dementia. See our impact page for more details.
It IS fun isn’t it? TimeSlips was originally designed for people with cognitive disabilities like dementia. Creative engagement is an ideal way for people with cognitive challenges to communicate. Our main audiences are families, care providers and elders experiencing isolation, whether from disabilities or social situations. But it’s fun for everyone and effective for community building of all kinds.
