Audrey's Angels was founded in 2001 by Audrey Bortner
Alderson and her husband Dr. Robert Alderson. We began by serving nine
homes with the help of five Music and Craft Angels and have grown to
serving over 100 homes and adult day care centers with the help of 75
Music and Craft Angels. Our mission for the program is to enrich the
lives of the elderly by bringing affordable interactive entertainment
into small residential adult care homes and adult day care centers.
With the help of community support, our program can
evoke a wide range of positive physical and emotional responses from
this ever growing elderly population.
Audrey's Angels lifts the hearts and minds of those they
serve in a way that transcends mental or physical disabilities. Through
music and crafts they ignite sparks of laughter, creativity, and
meaningful connection with others, turning an otherwise ordinary day
into an impromptu celebration of being alive.
