What’s Happened at Fair Oaks

For people of any age, arts and crafts can be relaxing pastimes or an outlet for creativity. For older adults, arts and crafts are actually a tool for improving health! Crafting provides many benefits for seniors, including positively impacting motor, social and cognitive skills and reducing stress and anxiety.

In addition to the health benefits, hobbies that bring joy and engagement can help prevent some common health concerns for seniors. Staying busy and social helps seniors to reduce their risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and reduces their risk of depression. Senior communities, like Fair Oaks Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, provide opportunities for seniors to take part in arts, crafts and other creative hobbies to help their residents gain the benefits and the enjoyment!

What’s Happened at Fair Oaks

Keeping the mind stimulated is one of the greatest benefits of participating in arts and crafts. Creative hobbies also encourage seniors to express themselves and share memories and feelings. In January, residents at Fair Oaks took part in a crafting night where they learned to paint a snowman on canvas. Later that month, residents enjoyed another painting craft and shared their work with family and friends. In February, residents were invited to attend a card game with neighbors. Fun activities, like cards and board games, can help seniors to improve self-confidence and bolster their mood!
