- Whitney B. Glandon; Alzheimer's Doesn't Define Who You Are. Susie Singer Carter 36:27
Whitney B. Glandon is a senior living program director, as well as a versatile New York City based dance artist, instructor, producer, and choreographer. Whitney was literally born into the senior living community and by the age of nine, she was leading movement classes to the seniors at her grandmother’s long term care communities in N.C. In 2009 Whitney founded Tuesdays@4, an innovative intergenerational program with a mission to bring generations – including seniors living with dementia and Alzheimer's – together through various forms of dance, art, poetry, theatre, improvisation and music inspired by stories and personal experiences.
Whitney's latest project, CAUGHT (Between Two Worlds), is a beautiful collaboration between Whitney, Jodie Berman and Martha Brim that came together through their extensive work in the Senior Living/Dementia Alzheimer's and Dance world. CAUGHT Dance Project is bringing awareness to the disease through dance and personal connections.
Whitney brings a refreshing – important – perspective on seniors living with Alzheimer's and dementia. Her dance programs are proof positive that seniors who have a sense of purpose are happier and healthier. And while they may have Alzheimer's, they don't have to, and shouldn't be, defined by their affliction. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast.
