With support from the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, TimeSlips is collaborating to create grass-roots gatherings of friends and family to learn simple engagement techniques. Our goal is to empower friends and neighbors to connect with elders who might be experiencing isolation or perhaps dementia.
These informal events are designed to be playful - learning through doing. Think a really fun book club or pot luck! We are piloting this approach in 2019, and aim to forge partnerships to get these simple tools out into the hands of those who need them by 2020.
