Create Change Institute Engages Community

Signature HealthCARE Partners with TimeSlips, Fund for the Arts, It’s Never Too Late!, Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence & Kentucky Cabinet of Health and Family Services

Louisville, Ky. –January 18, 2018 – Too often nursing home elders are untapped for their imagination, creativity and wisdom. A new project is tackling the problem of leaving many older adults idle. Signature HealthCARE is partnering with TimeSlips and Fund for the Arts to empower older adults to exercise their creative muscles and embrace their imagination.

“Relationships built during these few days together will enhance well-being and growth for all of the attendees. Anytime a diverse group of individuals such as this can come together to rally around a common vision, magic is sure to happen,” Angie McAllister, Director of Cultural Transformation at Signature HealthCARE and International Board Member of the Eden Alternative Registry.

The Create Change Institute brings together healthcare professionals working in long-term care, professional artists, students at any stage and older adults. Taking place at the Brown Theatre from January 18th to 19th, the Create Change Institute brings people together of different perspectives in integrating creativity in long-term healthcare.

“The Institute is a blast of inspiration for folks to re-imagine what is possible when worlds of creativity and care collide,” said Anne Basting, Founder & Director of TimeSlips, Professor of Theatre at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and a 2016 MacArthur Fellow.

This project was possible by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in partnership with the Kentucky State Survey Agency.

From flying lessons to a music workshop, the Create Change Institute connects creativity in arts to care in the healthcare business. The Create Change Institute is a collaboration between Time Slips, Signature HealthCARE, Fund for the Arts and is sponsored by the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence, It’s Never Too Late! and the Kentucky Cabinet of Health and Family Services.
