“Elevate Eldercare” often welcomes academic researchers from across the aging field, but Anne Basting is the first English professor to sit down behind our mics.
Basting is a firm believer in the power of art and creativity as a medium of communication and connection for people living with dementia. From putting on a production of the ancient story of Ulysses at a long-term care community to conducting storytelling sessions for elders over phone lines during COVID, Basting sees the extraordinary potential of people to keep learning, growing, and creating at any age.
Join us for a powerful conversation on empowering elders, families, and caregivers with the universal language of art.
