On Oct. 12, the Today Show visited Luther Manor Adult Day Center in Milwaukee to shoot a segment on the TimeSlips creative storytelling program. The TimeSlips project just launched a new website with free, interactive storytelling software designed to bring creativity to persons with dementia wherever they live, as well as a 5-module online training in the method. Jenna Bush was the reporter from the Today Show who interviewed the Luther Manor staff, storytellers, a family member, and Anne Bastings, Ph.D., found of TimeSlips. The segment is inspiring for families to move through their fear of dementia to find each other again through stories real or imagined.
Basting said she developed the technique to enhance the lives of people with dementia.
