Target demographics: Older adults who make their homes in skilled nursing, residential care and assisted living facilities.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Currently, Art With Elders is hosted by 33 long-term care facilities in five Bay Area counties – San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara and San Mateo.

Geographic areas served: San Francisco Bay Area

Mission:
Connecting the generations through programs that celebrate the wisdom. talents and creativity of older adults.
Results:
Art With Elders has given thousands of seniors a new lease on life by introducing them to the adventure of art.

One of the most important connections an older person can make and maintain is with the curiosity, wonder, and unselfconscious urge to explore and to create that are associated with the best characteristics of childhood. Willingness to re-kindle the spontaneity, the excitement of grappling with the unfamiliar, and the sense of unlimited potential that often characterize our younger days can – at any age – once again open hearts and minds to new worlds, new discoveries, new joys and, subsequently, fresh meaning in life.
