Gidday from New Zealand! I have a friend that loves clowning for the elderly. I am a ventriloquist and magician, so struggle to help her with ideas and thoughts she is after. I am wondering if anyone would be willing to help my friend who just loves supporting the elderly in this fun way. Smile

I'd love to be part of the conversation, but more information is needed.

What's the setting for performance? In their homes is different than in churches / community centers is different than in nursing homes.

How healthy? My mother is able to live in her own home. Performing for her and her friends is different than some her own age who require assisted living. That's a different show than those who are limited because of necessary medical care. All of those settings is vastly different than working with anyone with dementia.

Context is an important factor in working with older adults.

Hello. Thank you so much for answering. My friend would love to email... I could pm you her email address. Otherwise would it be better here? She performs in rest homes. I guess you call those nursing homes. She is just after some ideas for little skits and things. Thanks again. Smile
