TimeSlips Dementia Resource Featured on NPR

by Published On: May 17, 2012

On May 14, National Public Radio (NPR) featured TimeSlips Creative Storytelling

The piece, “Alzheimer’s Patients Turn to Stories Instead of Memories,” acknowledged the many ways creative storytelling can be beneficial to older adults with dementia, and those who care for them.

What is TimeSlips?

As we've noted before, TimeSlips storytelling is an improvisational storytelling technique originally developed to support growth and learning for people with dementia and their caregivers. 

Each storytelling session offers storytellers the opportunity to look at an image and use their imagination to develop a story. 

Facilitators use open-ended questions to prompt responses and build a story. TimeSlips can be utilized in a group or one-on-one.

TimeSlips and our Leadership Academy

This summer the LeadingAge Leadership Academy class of 2012 will have the unique opportunity to learn about, and experience TimeSlips Creative Storytelling when they visit LeadingAge member, Luther Manor in Wauwatosa, WI.
