Engage! 28 Creative Enrichment Experiences for Older Adults

If you want to stimulate older persons’ minds and imaginations, this gem of a book is for you. Let the easy-to-use thematic lesson plans help you create sessions that are filled with creativity, exploration, and fun. The 28 Experiences combine music, theatre, poetry, storytelling, and reminiscence that fosters curiosity and builds connections.

“Kareen King is the real deal — a committed, creative, and compassionate drama therapist who knows how to connect to older adults and lead an enjoyable, life-affirming group.  Her lessons are guaranteed to appeal to the curiosity in everyone and can be adapted to clients with any level of cognition or physical ability.  They have been honed through use with mixed ability groups of older adults, so they really work!  All you need is enthusiasm and the belief that there is creativity in everyone.” – Sally Bailey, Associate Professor, Kansas State University, Director, Drama Therapy Program
