Kathleen Santopietro will present: What’s a Memory? Storytelling for Seniors
Often residents of senior care facilities become a passive audience for structured activities. This workshop suggests that oral storytelling can provide an alternative to “in-chair” watching, crafting, or non-active listening. Participants review basic brain research surrounding the impact of story on memory, identify elements of effective programs for seniors, and discuss ways storytellers can market oral storytelling in independent, assisted and memory care facilities.
