Our mission is to engage older adults and care partners in health improvement and life enhancement through regular participation in the multi-disciplinary arts.

What We Do

Arts for the Aging believes that regular participation in the arts by older adults and caregivers helps to minimize the effects of aging-related physical and cognitive impairments, and contributes to physical, intellectual, and emotional health; that individuals have an inherent need to engage in self-expression and that older adults and caregivers should have access to quality arts programs; that professional artists trained in best practices can enhance caregiving and healthy aging, and that these programs foster communication and connection, and reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness.
