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.
