Senior Living Classes

Community engagement in senior living environments is vital to the overall health and well-being of residents.  The friendships and connections that residents make can be critical to the adjustment into a community living situation.  That is why modern senior and continuing care centers believe the menu of life enriching activities needs to inspire continuous learning and cater to a sophisticated, interested and engaged population.  We at Creatives-connect understand this mission and want to help you reach these goals. 

Here are a few points that make us unique in senior arts education and creative wellness:

 

  • mentally stimulating and engaging art and craft projects 

  • modifications to meet mobility and arthritic abilities of senior residents

  • low class size for personalized attention

  • chair yoga stretches and mindfulness practices before starting each project

  • professional and patient instruction and guidance

  • quality materials and completed projects

  • fun and fresh projects every week

  • all supplies included

  • class size limited to 12 people for personalized instruction

  • morning, afternoon, evening and weekend classes available

  • 1-1.5 hour class period, depending on project

 

Here’s what La Posada’s Senior Living Wellness Director and residents have to say about their experiences: 

 

“Creatives-connect has breathed new life into our residents’ artistic endeavors here at La Posada.  The arts & crafts and beading classes are well planned and appropriate for seniors at the community.  DeeAnne and Idilko stimulate our residents’ artistic desires as well as provide an environment that engages them socially and even spiritually. I would strongly recommend them to any community looking to add or expand art classes as part of their programming.”

“I can’t say enough good things about our Creatives-connect teachers and classes.  We have created amazing and beautiful arts and crafts projects in an atmosphere of peace and relaxation.  Love them and love the great gifts that I have made for myself, my children and grandchildren.”                                      ~ La Posada Resident, 92, Palm Beach Gardens, FL

 

“Wish we had Creatives-connect here everyday.  I love reconnecting with my artistic side after all these years…it’s so much fun!”        ~ La Posada Resident, 83, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
