Senior Program

Our Artistry

Our Senior Program Clowns use music, dance, storytelling, comedy, and imagination, and the art of clowning to create exquisite, five star encounters with residents in memory care facilities and aged care homes. 

Our Visits

Our Senior visits include bringing joy to residents gathered in common areas as well as one-on-one interactions. Our Senior Program Clowns use their artistry, acute observation skills, and sensitivity to help social engagement and counteract feelings of isolation, confusion, and depression.

Our Look

All of the Senior Program Clown characters are designed to recall looks and fashions from the 40s, 50s, and 60’s. The red nose makes it clear that we are there to bring joy while the elegant costumes invite patients into the past. Manners and courtesies are at the forefront of our movement and gesture.
