A Successful Creative Aging Program

To date, I have delivered more than forty different 45-minute storytelling shows to three assisted living and memory care facilities in Tucson, Arizona. Most recently, I have added three new audiences in Green Valley in La Posada (La Via, La Hacienda and La Joya).

The format of each show includes a personal memory tale with related artifacts to recall memories from the 1930s to 1950s. Each session also includes world folktales relating to the subject or theme of the day. I have found this to be an effective creative aging format for elder audiences.

Although I am not formally educated in the field of senior care or therapy, I have years of experience as a performer addressing the needs and interests of people of all ages and from every walk of life.



Scenes form past venues

I constantly strive to be sensitive and selective about telling stories with meaning for each audience where I am invited to perform. I do this by coordinating what I do with the working professionals in each situation.

(Letters of recommendation: Spargo and Shattuck)

If you are looking for a creative aging program for the residents you serve, I invite you to contact me (phone: 520. 629.0270 or 520.235-4171 or email) to discuss the idea of adding this successful program to your line-up.

"Glenda puts a phenomenal amount of work into each storytelling session and organizes each session around a theme. She begins with a personal story, a memory that relates to the theme, and then offers two more stories that come from an international oral tradition."
