VERO BEACH, Fla., April 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As the country celebrated the 51st anniversary of our nation's Earth Day, the residents of Market Street Memory Care Palm Coast contributed to the global initiative to improve environmental issues worldwide. Community professionals, families, prospects and residents attended the Market Street Memory Care Art Show honoring Earth Day with a vision to save the Earth one recycled object at a time.
The art show was part of a month-long initiative by Market Street Palm Coast encouraging residents to use recycled media to create art, as well as seed bombs and terrariums. Focused art classes are part of Watercrest Senior Living's signature program offered at Market Street, coined Artful Expressions.
Residents at Market Street Memory Care Residence Palm Coast express their artistic voices through various mediums such as photography, painting, art history, creative writing, and performing arts. The evidence-based research program invites residents to spark their imagination through a series of interesting and unique classes, workshops, and experiences.
"The beauty of art is that it allows our residents to engage with emotion, social interaction, and creativity, while breaking down the communication barriers for individuals living with dementia," says Janell Dunn, Executive Director of Market Street Palm Coast.
Artful Expressions is a critical element of Watercrest's Live Exhilarated™ program, which was created to focus on the active pursuit of 'personal wholeness' for each resident. The program includes thoughtfully planned, multi-part programs inspired by individual resident's passions and interests which align with the seven facets of wholeness: Get Active, Be Curious, Get Connected, Be Uplifted, Get Creative, Be Social, Be Adventurous.
"Self-expression is critical for our seniors mental and emotional well-being, and the therapeutic benefits of art can decrease anxiety and offer feelings of accomplishment," says Sheena Jeffries, Regional Director of Engagement at Watercrest Senior Living. "
