TimeSlips helps patients suffering from dementia rediscover a talent for storytelling

Dementia can rob a person of their memory, but often leaves their ability to spin a yarn.  It’s the concept behind TimeSlips, a program developed in Milwaukee now being utilized in elder care facilities nationwide.

UWM Theater Arts professor Anne Bastings helped create TimeSlips in 1998, a group therapy program that infuses creativity into elder care.

Student Photojournalists Amelia Jones and Lexy Bursiek shared more on CBS 58 Sunday Morning.
