Anne Basting, PhD
The Foundation was most grateful to have been the hosts earlier this month for noted author Anne Basting, PhD, here in Cleveland for three days. Local audiences had the opportunity to learn more about her work and insight in dementia and elder care. Anne shared her positive approach and fundamental aspects of enriching lives by bringing light and joy to others. From her TimeSlips (TM) experience that encourages storytelling and active listening to engaging methods of theater and improvisation, Anne shared beautiful examples of all. Guests were offered time for questions and each shared their respect and admiration for Anne’s work.
Anne’s Book,
“Creative Care – A Revolutionary Approach to DEMENTIA and ELDER CARE”¬†is available for purchase at the Center for Artful Living.
We are thankful for the following organizations that made her visit possible:
Masks
Based on the latest COVID statistics for the State of Ohio, masks are strongly encouraged for all, and required for non-vaccinated guests while inside the Center for Artful Living.
We take precautions in maintaining the cleanliness of the building and equipment.
