Whether you’re a professional artist or just enjoy making art as a hobby, we can all appreciate the process of creating. ️ Art therapy was born out of the idea that art and creative expression can help people improve their mental, physical, and emotional health and overall well-being.
In art therapy, people are guided by a professional art therapist who helps them engage with different art forms while addressing their mental, physical, or emotional health concerns at the same time. For older adults, creating art and participating in art therapy can be particularly beneficial. Let’s take a look at some of the top benefits of art therapy for seniors – Increased motor skills and coordination - Engaging in these light physical activities helps to improve coordination and increases blood flow, which may improve dexterity in the hands, wrists, and fingers. Cognitive function and stimulation - For seniors living with memory loss, the process of creating art can be an avenue for communication and self-expression. Improved mood and mental health - Helps older adults cope with common issues such as isolation, loneliness, and stress, which may be caused by age or health-related changes. Opportunities for social connection - Art therapy gives them the opportunity to exercise their social skills and make new friends in a relaxing, casual setting to eliminate loneliness and isolation.
With so many positive benefits, it’s easy to see why many retirement communities offer art classes and art therapy programs to help seniors experience an improved quality of life and enjoy the fun and freedom of creating.
