Why Alive Inside?

When Michael Rossato-Bennett began filming 'Alive Inside,'
he never expected it's impact to be so large.
While many lives were changed,
he saw there was still a deep need for enrichment for the elders, staff, and families.
He assembled a team and do something about it.

Too many elders are fading away-
abandoned and over-medicated-

Too many elders are fading away.
abandoned and over-medicated-


When Michael saw young people giving music to elders, and being changed,
he began a new film, titled: ’Alive Inside Together.’

Michael and Tony Fisher created an 'Alive Inside Together' pilot program at Healdsburg Senior Living.
One private school partner slowly turned into 13 schools
bringing 400-600 students a month into the center.
The students gave the elders their music.
The teachers found freedom in teaching,
the students changed an elders' life, and found purpose,
and the institution bloomed financially and emotionally.

But then...


THE FUTURE,
DEMANDS WE RE-THINK AGING

THE FUTURE,
DEMANDS WE RE-THINK AGING


Covid-19 hit!

Overnight, bringing Youth and Elders together became unthinkable.

We were devestated,
but there is a silver lining...

Now, because of COVID, all of us understand the cost of loneliness, isolation, and lack of enrichment.

Now, Covid is receding, and the team has restarted the Alive Inside Together mission.
