The Benefits of Creative Activities For Seniors

a-1 domestic creative aging

When caring for seniors and elderly, it’s important to incorporate creative activities such as art, music, or crafts into daily living. In part of their mind alertness webinar series, American Society on Aging and Creativity & Aging, talks about the importance of art, music, and creativity exercise in a senior’s life in “Creativity, Art, and The Mature Mind“.  Caregivers should encourage and assist seniors to learn these activities as skills. The process of learning how to paint, dance, or play an instrument can help stimulate the mind.  The learning process presents a challenge to the senior. The elderly then need to test different methods to solve it and interact with others to share the challenge. Then the senior receives feed backs from others which could encourage this behavior.  By using the body and mind the senior is enhancing it and not loosing it because it is not used. Learning a new skill through creative activities stimulate the mind and promote social interactions to avoid mental diseases such as depression. Caregivers should promote creative activities for seniors as it has many beneficial factors for the senior’s overall health. It is also an activity the senior will enjoy.
