Springfield, MO: Creekside Family Member Sings Melodies From Days Gone By

Jim Kendrick is a staple in the Life Enrichment calendar at Creekside. Not only is he a close family member of one of our community members, he has also been providing music once a month for over three years to a faithful audience. He sings Gospel, folk, and songs from his childhood–and from the childhood of the community members–all from memory! Often you will see tears in the eyes of those in the audience as they hear songs they have not heard since their youth. Every month, the crowd grows as more people want to share in the memories of these songs and the sweetness of Jim’s voice. It is amazing how something as simple as a guitar, an old song, and a group of people can bring up wonderful memories. These are the moments we live for at Creekside.

Quality Life:  We will create a living environment that radiates love, peace, spiritual contentment, dignity and safety, while encouraging personal independence.
