There are 46 million elders living with Dementia worldwide,
hundreds of millions of lost youth,
and millions of people in the middle,
lost and lonely...
The ties that bind us-
feel stretched dangerously thin.
OUR YOUNG AND OLD ARE
EXPERIENCING AN UNPRECEDENTED EPIDEMIC
OF DISCONNECTION AND LONELINESS,
IT IS TIME TO RECONNECT!
The effect of dementia goes beyond the 5 million people who live with it every day.
Family members, friends, and caregivers feel the pain as well.
The cost is immense, both monetarily, emotionally and socially.
Our Elders are often pushed to the edge of society, seen as an expense rather than valuable. They are isolated, considered a burden and difficult to connect to. Those with Alzheimer's are considered even more inaccessible. However, in these elders the desire to communicate and interact with the world around them is not gone. They are still ALIVE INSIDE!
Those with Dementia or Alzheimers also face the challenge of overmedication.
Many elders with these communication challenge try and reach out by acting out.
In return they are given anti-psychotics instead of understanding.
Elder care, especially for those with Alzheimer's and dementia, needs help. And we can help.
We face similar challenges with our youth.
Being young is hard, especially if you have limited opportunities to connect with people on a deeper level, or make an impact on the world around you. For some, Empathy is seen as a weakness not a strength.
This outlook destroys humanity.
Empathy as connection is often overlooked and undervalued, to the detriment of our youth.
Working with Alive Inside can help.
The power of music is incredible.
It can connect people, bridge gaps between age and experience, bring forward forgotten memories.
It puts us in touch with ourselves and each other.
With our headsets, App, Life Story software, tools, and training materials, we can change peoples' lives.
WE CAN FEEL LESS ALONE!
and you solve everything...
