There once was a WALL

"..If you painted, or performed, or wrote, or engaged in any form of creativity, the very nature of the wall could change, and change you."
Creative Aging brings the arts to older adults where they live or gather. To do that, they hire professional musicians and other artists to perform and teach in nursing homes, retirement communities, senior centers and daycare facilities. Arts-related programs have a significant and measurable impact on seniors’ cognitive, emotional and physical well-being. Older adults who participate in arts programs report a higher overall rating of physical health, fewer doctor visits, less medication use, fewer instances of falls, and fewer other health problems than those who do not participate. Please watch this short but inspiring video.
