            Home Care Activities: Hands-On Watercolor Projects Clients and Caregivers Can Do Together

With more seniors having the option to age at home, ensuring they remain engaged and active is key to helping them stay in the house they love for as long as possible.

Home care providers are called upon to assist seniors with a variety of essential daily activities, including dressing, light housekeeping, and running errands. However, it’s the companionship they offer that means most to the older adults they serve. With Artfully Aging at-home watercolor projects, caregivers and seniors can use their creativity to connect through a meaningful and therapeutic art activity both will enjoy.

The benefits of Artfully Aging for home care companies and their clients

Artfully Aging is simple for any home care company to launch and for any caregiver to lead – even if they have no art experience. Two free “Train the Trainer” videos provide caregivers with easy-to-follow watercolor tips and techniques as well as guidance for working with seniors at every level of care. In addition, virtual in-service training programs led by Artfully Aging founder Mary Beth Flynn can be scheduled.

Said Evan Milnor of Private Home Care, “Our team has loved exploring their artistic side and developing new skills that they can implement with our clients. Some of our Caregivers have already begun using the watercolor packets to do with clients. The program is especially beneficial for clients with memory loss who can use the art projects as a way to create more engagement and stimulation.”

Just a few benefits of Artfully Aging include:

  • Affordable activities that are simple to plan – Artfully Aging watercolor projects are just $5 per person. Each activity includes five prepared watercolor sheets and a step-by-step instructional video that provides storytelling and reminiscing prompts.
  • Several project options – Artfully Aging offers project themes for every holiday, season, or interest. Home care companies are able to order from a variety of themes to provide a wide selection of projects for their caregivers to choose from to do with their clients.
  • A relaxing and enjoyable activity – Projects can be adapted for every care level, whether a senior wants to paint independently or needs hands-on help from their caregiver. Seniors who tap into their creative side experience greater happiness, feel less depressed and anxious, and demonstrate a sense of pride and accomplishment.
