"ALIVE INSIDE @ HOME!"
FREE "Memory Players" for Elders in need
Making "Alive Inside" we saw too many elders living alone and lonely at home; living without "connection."
This made us so sad.
We felt their loneliness and wanted to help.
It is painful to be cut off from life!
In 1980 20% of Americans complained of loneliness, today that number has grown to 40%.
Touring with the film we met many people who want to help these forgotten elders-
About 28% (12.5 million) of non-institutionalized older persons live alone (8.8 million women, 3.8 million men). Almost half of older women (46%) age 75+ live alone.
We thought, let's inspire an army of young people to connect!
Let's fight the epidemic of disconnection sweeping the world.
To help, filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett invented our "Memory Players," the only All-in-One music player that two people can listen to at the same time!
Designed to be low cost and high quality, to be given away and bring connection!
