Seniors enjoy art therapy on a rainy day!

It’s raining, it’s pouring but at WMC we have art work forming!

Have you ever found comfort in painting a picture, creating pottery or even discussing an artist’s work you enjoy? Art therapy is a creative form of therapy for older adults with memory loss, or people experiencing mental or physical stress. 

Some of the benefits of art therapy for seniors include its impact on one’s mood, self-expression and lifelong learning.  Residents find these programs both relaxing and fun.

The residents at Winston Medical Center Senior Care are trying a new form of art therapy today!  They are utilizing a marble art technique that uses shaving cream and food coloring. 

“I think this is a beautiful type of art. It develops into some of my favorite colors,” said Mrs. Whitehead, a Resident of WMC Senior Care.
