Improve Communication Skills

Following a change in mental function, communication can suffer. Our program helps improve seniors' communication skills by providing a creative outlet for self-expression. Many seniors find that they are able to communicate more effectively after taking part in art or music therapy. This is because they are not only communicating verbally but also through their artwork or music.
