Program Description

"Initially, seniors skeptical or intimidated with the idea of creating an artistic creation. However, through reassurance and encouragement, the residents readily participate to discover their inner artist. Therapeutic art sessions also compliments HCR Manor Care 'Engagement Therapy' which focuses on providing activities that meet the physical, social, creative, intellectual, civic and sensory needs of each resident."


“Feather’s Touch - Mobile Art for Seniors in Nursing Homes” Program provides a creative outlet for seniors and an innovative way to outsource and implement nursing home activities.

  • Support different forms of senior art and expression
  • How to implement a therapeutic art session for seniors
  • Understand how art therapy activities can meet the physical and mental needs of seniors
  • Provide guided senior art therapy instruction
