In this article, the author takes a multidimensional and personal look at creative writing work in an assisted living facility. The people she works with at the facility have memory loss. She shares her experience working with these people and describes a storytelling workshop that was modeled after Timeslips, a program started by Anne Basting at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Basting's work and her latest book, "Forget Memory," have inspired many artists who work with people who have memory loss in order to place the focus on imagination, rather than memory.
