Holiday Retirement Home art show June 12
Scientific studies suggest the arts can offer health outcomes no pill can provide. In 2001, the late, eminent gerontologist Gene Cohen studied the influence of the arts on older adults and found that when the adults engaged and learned something new, physical and emotional benefits followed. Cohen’s findings and subsequent research suggest that creative expression programs can reduce pain, the need for medication, falls, depression and loneliness – while increasing mobility, helping cognition and making participants feel valued.
The Activity Department of the Holiday Retirement Home in Manville, led by Diane Longworth, has long implemented the creative arts in programming. On Tuesday, June 12, from 6 to 7 p.m., the Holiday Retirement Home will be hosting a Resident Art Show. The community is welcomed to attend. Light refreshments will be served
The art show will be held in the Activity Room at the Holiday Retirement Home, 30 Sayles Hill Road, Manville.
