Contract art therapy services allow eldercare facilities and community centers to provide services without creating a program, creating a position, or having to provide art materials. These groups target tough issues that plague facilities such as limited activities and attention available for high fall risk/ behavioral individuals, limited non-pharmacological interventions for pain and anxiety, and little supportive services for those emotionally adjusting to a long term facility or within the short term rehab process.
We firmly believe the mind and body are connected and difficult emotions can create roadblocks effecting an individuals quality of life and physical health. These problems can manifest in ways such as calling out, that create a stressful environment for nurses, staff and other residents, and family can be dissatisfied with loved one being in the facility as a result. We have seen how these facilities act as a system and how dealing with underlying issues can lead to a better facility ecosystem.
Our services complement community centers values and goals and help to provide individuals within your community supportive services to foster self-esteem, peer support, outlets of expression, opportunities to explore spirituality and belief systems, and coping tools to deal with grief, stress, depression, and anxiety.
Call or email to schedule a free trial session of a group of your choice.
Seeing is believing!
We would love the opportunity to show you what we do!
