Remembering our elders

ALMA inspires vitality and a sense belonging throughout the lifespan, engaging older adults in health improvement and life enhancement through creative arts,  dance, and music programming and connection to outside community volunteers.

Our program is showing social emotional benefits for everyone involved.

The way we treat older adults and people with dementia, gives definitions to our culture, it reflects our societal values. We pay honor when we relate to them
— Donna Newmna-Bluestein, Board certified Dance/movement Therapist & advocate for adults living with dementia.

ALMA (previously known as plantpals) transform lives by creating inter-generational relationships with volunteers and underserved seniors living in long term care through movement, music, and art activities.  

We plant seeds for connection, empowerment, and a better quality of life, through direct creative arts programming, education, advocacy, and research.
