46 million elders live with Dementia worldwide,
hundreds of millions of youth are struggling,
millions feel 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...
SONG AND STORY CAN TEACH US THAN WE THINK!
The cost of dementia is immense; monetarily, emotionally and socially.
Many of our Elders are isolated, considered a burden and inaccessible.
However, these elders, want to communicate and interact.
They are still ALIVE INSIDE!
We can help them.
Many elders with Alzheimer's are overmedicated.
Their attempts at communication are interpreted as 'acting out.'
They are given anti-psychotics instead of understanding.
We can stop this.
Eldercare needs warm bodies. We know where to find them!
Being young today is hard-
you have limited opportunities to connect with people on a deeper level,
to make an impact on others.
You are asked to 'raise' yourself.
Humans cannot do this.
We have seen the generations help each other!
Working with Alive Inside helps both young and old.
The healing power of 'Song and Story' is incredible.
For millions of years,
it has connected people,
helped us 'raise' each other,
helped us connect with ourselves and each other.
Our Headsets, Empathy Challenges, and training change peoples' lives.
There is a place inside of you,
that can not be wounded,
that is not lonely.
Find that place in yourself,
and the world heals...
