Why Join Creative Aging Cincinnati?
A note from the Executive Director, Bev Ross:
From personal experience as an Activity Director working in an Adult Day Program for close to ten years, I have encountered individuals with memory impairments, who are all but disconnected from the world around them, sing an old familiar tune and recall their younger years. I have witnessed a gentleman, debilitated with Parkinson’s disease, eagerly stand and dance to his favorite melody! I have marveled at the artwork of individuals who were, at first, reluctant to paint because of their disabilities. And I’ve seen the sparkle in their eyes, reflecting a great sense of confidence and pride as they share their masterpiece! For many, it rekindles the sense that life is still exciting and there are still new things to learn, share, and enjoy, regardless of their age or infirmities! These are the moments that Creative Aging offers to our seniors!
