Older Adults

As our population ages, men and women are living longer and healthier lives. Their needs as individuals change as they age. Are you an older adult looking for a therapeutic alternative which offers you the opportunity to try new or awaken existing art forms? Do you have any older adult in your life, maybe a parent you care for or about and want to offer another kind of support to them? Do you need support as you care for this parent? Older adults face issues that are new to them: changes in their health and their abilities, changes in their environments, their social circles and their independence may be changing also. Please keep in mind that no previous art experience or ability is required.

Through Jo-Anne’s extensive experience working with older adults, she is able to offer compassion and understanding, opening opportunities for expression and healing. Jo-Anne is available to work on-site if travel is a challenge.
