Beyond Bingo...

Imagine That! offers TimeSlipsTM and Poetry Alive! improvisational storytelling and poetry programs for groups and individuals, led by Sarah Jacobus, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker committed to creative engagement as a tool for meaningful self-expression, community building and fun.

Creative engagement...

recognizes the unique power of the arts to enhance a sense of purpose and belonging

 

invites elders to be active participants rather than passive recipients

 

validates the creative contributions of each participant


cultivates social connections 

 

provides a sense of purpose and meaning

"She says, 'I should have had a pedicure!'"

And for people with memory loss...

focuses on imagination, freeing participants of the pressure to remember

 

ensures that people with memory loss are more than a diagnosis

Participants look forward to attending, and family caregivers enjoy seeing their loved ones more engaged and stimulated.

helps family members recognize what their loved one can still do, not what they've lost

 

builds a community that values all members
