About Lori adams


 "My  grandmother, Mrs. Helen Adams, was the person who inspired me to begin  this business.  Although her physical body was  very frail at the end of her 98  years, she was ALIVE in her soul.  During our many visits, I realized  that singing with her, creating a personal connection using our voices,  was a wonderful way to tap into her inner child and motivate her to move just a little.  I aspire to  conduct my business daily in doing her proud.  Each and every person I serve is special and  is looking for joy,  just as  my Grandmother was.  I always carry those memories of our happy  moments together.  My vision is to help create more  of these moments for our seniors."
