WE HONOR OUR "ALIVE INSIDE HEROES"
An 81-year-old dancer talks about her music and her "Memory Player."
She is so beautiful!!!
This ALIVE INSIDE Moment comes from a 9-year-old boy named Tate!
Tate understands how to have a Meaningful Life at 9!
Please share with us your moments of Meaning and Aliveness!
This amazing Boy-scout raised money and gave Alive Inside "Memory Players" to elders with Dementia!
INSPIRED ADULT DAY CARE-
While filming "Alive Inside 2," we stumbled into the Williams Adult Day Center completely by accident.
We fell in love with how they use Music, Dance, and Love to bring aliveness to elders living with Alzheimer's.
They are doing so much more than headphones!
This is what daily Elder Care can be, and for only $56 per day!
(We didn't realize until we had left, that Williams was voted best Adult Day Care in the nation! Wonderful!)
This is a beautiful story about a wonderful woman named Barbara and her hunt for music that would help her mother.
Barbara and her mother both made it into the film "Alive Inside."
FROM THE MAILBAG-
— A (16)“When I watched your movie I could not stop crying. Tears streamed down my face continuing throughout the film.
When it was over I realized you are really on to something so fantastic,
and that I must be a part of it."— R“I am a 16 year old Boy Scout who working towards being an Eagle Scout. I am going to (a) Sponsor a movie night at our local library to help raise awareness (b) Use your teaching materials to lead a follow up session in our community (c) Organize a group of fellow scouts and youths locally to bring their elders their “Alive Inside” music... "
“I watched the “Alive Inside” documentary and was very moved.— D
I have had family members in nursing homes and its very depressing.
I can see how sharing music and spending time with people can make a huge difference."
“My mother died of Alzheimer’s disease. It was horrible.— P
If I had known how to help her with music, it would have made such a difference.
Many old timers like me, at 65, watch a lot of movies etc. but we leave our music out.
I notice when I listen to music it brings back certain memories long forgotten."
"I live in a senior trailer park and many of us who are alone with no children and no visitors to hang out with suffer greatly. I want to be a part of this movement of yours. Please let me be of some help some way as we here in this senior community trailer park and around Sacramento need it desperately and are succumbing to dementia in many instances.— C
God bless you for the work you are doing. I have never had a movie affect me in a greater way than the movie you made. I watched it on Netflix and immediately called my sister. She is going to watch it also. So, please let me know what I can do to get involved with this tremendously important project. God Bless you and keep the faith. This is the biggest breakthrough in science I have seen yet!"
Nashville Recording artist Griffin House saw "Alive Inside" and was so inspired he wrote this song-
he recorded it with the kids from Lakehouse Music in N.J.
