Stagebridge is a pioneer in bringing theatre arts to training programs for health care professionals. In workshops aptly titled See Me! Stagebridge seniors performed for health care students, sharing stories about their own experiences with medical personnel and engaging students in improvisation exercises. Through the three-hour workshops, students came to realize the vitality, humor and wisdom of seniors. The experience also deepened student empathy with older patients by introducing the patient point-of-view.
See Me! is currently on hiatus, but we are in the process of working with healthcare institutions and professionals to develop new programs that explore the potential of creativity, the performing arts, and healthy aging. If you are part of a health or eldercare institution and are interested in the health benefits of creative aging, and would like to explore a partnership with Stagebridge, please fill out the form below.
