The Change we will bring...

Eight years ago,
we started filming elders living with Alzheimer's Dementia.

We quickly realized, great change is needed-

Too many elders enter Nursing homes and quickly fade.
Too many elders are abandoned and over-medicated-
It broke our hearts and angered us.

  • 69% of nursing homes are for-profit institutions.

  • Over-medication is a huge problem.

  • 41% of Elders report chronic loneliness.

The top-down institutional approach, even with Music,
fails to connect families, the generations and to create meaningful life.


TO NAVIGATE THE EMERGING FUTURE,
WE MUST RETHINK WHAT SAFETY MEANS

The Alive Inside Coalition is searching for humanistic Elder Care.

When it comes to aging, our thinking is not sustainable.

Our relationships with aging, commerce, and the biosphere must change.

There is no other option.


In Coalition, we can inspire our communities to connect- intergenerationaly, musically, and relationally.
The noncognitive parts of our selves: music, emotion and empathy, have sustained us for millennia. They still have gifts for us.
We do not view Chronic Loneliness, an epidemic in elder and modern life, as a part of normal life.
Instead, we see it as a symptom. The way our beings, both young and old, react to "life-not-worth-living."

HEAL LONELINESS
AND ALL ELSE
FALLS INTO PLACE
