Visions of the Past Through Poetry

A Vibrant Awakening Of Memories: Progressive Home Health’s First Edition of Poetry Workshop Poems (1)

His books are a collection of poetry written by residents in personal care homes around western Pennsylvania, through poetry workshops led by John Conte.

John uses poetry to help residents socialize, relax, and relive visions of the past through poetry and their encapsulating storytelling. These books are a result of the creativity and success that comes from these workshops.

The poems in these books paint a picture of life through the residents’ eyes. They reminisce on the past, enjoy the present, and look forward to the future while using poems to show a beautiful picture of their experiences and how they see the world.
