Moving Memories – A Community-Engaged Course


Ellen Tomer Baker facilitated a discussion on eldercare and practical aspects of engaging with senior adults with students in DAN 249 Moving Memories in early February. Ellen focused on issues related to aging such: language, social bias, health challenges, and well-being. As a social worker who has worked in eldercare for the past seventeen years, she was able to draw from the variety of experiences from personal home visits, VA care, hospice, and her current work at St. Ann’s. Ellen also has a background in dance as a performer and choreographer, so she was especially well-suited to help the students prepare for their choreographic collaboration with our River Edge Manor partners.
