Art, music, and crafts aren’t just creative activities and entertainment, they provide valuable benefits for aging seniors. “The Benefits of Creativity For Seniors” helps seniors and elderly prolong their body and mind through stimulation of the brain and muscles. Now that we understand the benefits of creativity, how do you , as a caregiver, get the elderly involved in these creative activities? We encourage caregivers to get to know and learn the senior’s personality and understand what sorts of activities the senior will be interested in. Does the senior like to listen to music? If so, get him or her involved in learning a new instrument. If there is limited resources, look into community based events and services the elderly can get involved in. Look into events such as grand parents day or senior art day at the community center where the services is open to the public. Interest plays an important role in the senior’s participation of the activity The more interested the senior is in the activity, the more likely they will partake in the activity.
It is never too late for a senior to start participating in creativity exercises.
