Touching Hearts

Carole Ware–McKenzie has spent 25 + years using her skills and talents to engage others. She has spent the last 10 years working with  Elders.  Being a recreational therapist is at the core of who she is.  Purposeful play and the expressive arts are the tools she uses to educate, empower and engage and she is seeing amazing results within the Elder community. Three years ago she created H.E.A.R.T.S (Healing trough Expressive Arts and Recreational Therapy Services), a unique engagement program. By using creative approaches and techniques to enhance the lives of Elders, she has seen those often withdrawn come alive when given the opportunity.  She refuses to accept society’s view that our Elders have nothing to offer and “Can’t do it”, but instead thrives to help individuals and communities reframe their way of thinking.  Carole loves working with families and professional caregivers to break through those perceived barriers to enhance and strengthen communication and relationships.
Carole has a B.S. degree in Recreation and Psychology and has been trained in many different modalities of experiential therapies and expressive arts.

    Caregivers, especially those caring for seniors with some form of dementia, spend much of their day working to present enjoyable and meaningful activities to engage the senior. Activities are sought out to stimulate and exercise both the mind and body. One of the greatest challenges that the caregiver faces is getting and keeping their loved one engaged in meaningful activity. Carole touches your heart and is just the person to help you with this. Her service brings joy back into the lives of homebound, lonely or socially isolated seniors and older adults.
