"ALIVE INSIDE @ HOME!"
FREE "Memory Players" for Elders in need
Making "Alive Inside" we saw too many elders living alone and lonely at home.
We felt their loneliness and wanted to help.
In 1980 20% of Americans complained of loneliness, today that number has grown to 40%.
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.
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!
They are designed to be high quality and inexpensive enough to be given away!
Be- "Alive Inside!"

A success story
Hal wrote us and asked for help- one of our vollunteers responded! How could we refuse this sweet man?
Stay tuned- we are developing an Online Platform to help our youth volunteers to sing, share music, poetry, life stories and more with elders living at home!! The #Empathy Revolution is gaining speed!!
