  1. StoryShare-Tellarounds - Mary will tell stories to senior groups. If they wish, they can share an anecdote from their lived history in a Tellaround!
  2. Mary is a TimeSlips™ Certified Facilitator. TimeSlips™ is an internationally renowned collaborative storytelling program offered to people with dementia. The story building is based on showing an image and asking open ended questions. A scribe writes down exactly what the client storytellers say about the image. Once the story has some shape, the host storyteller retells their story using their exact words, expressions and sounds. Then the client storytellers are asked if they would like to add to the story, if the story is done and to title the story. Next comes the final telling of the story and the pure joy generated in the shared creative project! At the end of the session the story is written up by the host storyteller and published on the TimeSlips™ website for others to enjoy.
