In this 11-minute podcast, the new Life Enrichment Coordinator for Island Volunteer Caregivers (IVC), Lynn Murphy, describes the series of three uplifting films that IVC is offering for free, at 1pm, starting this Sunday March 6th.
Lynn describes the three-film series called “Living Out Loud” – with award-winning documentaries and unforgettable casts of characters who show that “growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional.”
As Lynn says, each feature-length film is joyous and memorable. Each will be screened in the comfortable upholstered seating of the cinema auditorium of the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
- Sunday March 6th at 1pm, the first film is “Age of Champions“, showing five seniors up to 100 years old who love participating in the Senior Olympics, including tennis, swimming and rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers.
- Sunday March 13th at 1pm, it’s a film called “Young @ Heart“, about a group of singing seniors who figure they’re never too old to rock.
- Sunday April 3rd at 1pm, it’s a film called “Alive Inside” about the hope and joy that can be experienced, despite symptoms of Alzheimers, when music is added to the mix.
Each film is offered without charge to the public. Seniors might enjoy attending with a family member.
Lynn also describes the range of free services offered by IVC day-by-day to help Seniors age in place. More than 150 IVC volunteers offer services at no charge to more than 200 IVC care recipients. Learn more at the IVC website.
To contact IVC about either volunteering or applying for services, call Rita or Robin at 206-842-4441.
The film series is co-sponsored by Bainbridge Senior Living, with facilities offering memory care, respite care, assisted living and independent living.
