ElderSong is happy to announce that, beginning December 31, 2021, Beckie Karras is retiring, and ElderSong will continue in the new year with a new owner - Richard Wang of Emerald Workshop LLC.
Based in Connecticut, Richard and Emerald Workshop LLC are excited to ensure that the library of ElderSong products continues to be produced to serve the needs of activity directors, recreation and music therapists, caregivers, and other professionals who serve an ever-growing and changing population of older adults. In addition to new printings of our products, we are also pleased to announce that as part of this next chapter for ElderSong, we'll begin expanding our library over the coming year with new titles, updated editions, and a popular request—digital versions of our books and music albums!
If you have any questions about the transition or want to let Richard and Emerald Workshop LLC know about the products you are most interested in seeing digitized, you can reach him at [email protected], and he'll be happy to speak further with you. Orders through the end of the year will continue to be processed from our Maryland office. Orders beginning January 2022 will then be processed from Connecticut. We appreciate your patience as out-of-print products are returned to production and reintroduced during this transition.
As we approach Thanksgiving and the holiday season, we are thankful to be a part of the care and work you do with your residents, clients, and family members. We look forward to continuing our operations as your source for high-quality products and resources for years to come.
