SKIP

WISCONSIN FOLKSINGER, STORYTELLER & EDUCATOR

Elderly Programs

Skip has visited 4,500 senior centers, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and memory

care units in the past 30 years. He is always well received and connects in a sincere and loving way with elders of all backgrounds. Seniors who have experienced Skip's performances express that they love him, his music, and say they look forward to his next visit.

 

He is an adaptive performer combining music, stories and humor in a way that invokes memories and helps our elders celebrate life, family and community.

 

More than entertainment, Skip's programs touch all eight essential elements of good Senior programming. Through his songs and stories, his performances touchl the intellectual,

psychological, emotional, spiritual, occupational, inter-generational, special interests and

community contact.

 

He sings the old songs that elders joyously sing along with. His stories inspire them to tell theirs, reminding them of days past and their younger selves. Each visit becomes a warm experience for residents and staff alike.
