Research shows that participating in creative arts has a multitude of cognitive and physical benefits for older adults: fewer falls, less need for medication, fewer doctor visits, and a significant reduction in depression. Engaging in the arts helps to build community, increases social connections and dramatically improves quality of life.
From the National Center for Creative Aging:
The process of aging is a profound experience marked by increasing physical and emotional change and a heightened search for meaning and purpose. Creative expression is important for older people of all cultures and ethnic backgrounds, regardless of economic status, age, or level of physical, emotional, or cognitive functioning. The arts can serve as a powerful way to engage elders in a creative and healing process of self-expression, enabling them to create works that honor their life experience.
