Some of the proven benefits of engaging in creative activities with older adults is that it helps to reduce stress, fear, and anxiety, restores and motivates muscle memory and it also enriches relationships and encourages socialization. These are the many reasons why we here at The Springs at Pacific Regent encourage our residents to come on in and join our Color Art Class that is held each Monday at 11:00am.
“Art is a wonderful activity that taps into imagination. Even with the loss of memory, the capacity for imagination still has its place. That is one reason there has been increasing attention to art for people with Alzheimer’s. Even as memory fades the imagination has the capacity to be robust.” – Dr. Gene Cohen
