Coloring & Painting Books for Seniors
In older adults, seniors and the elderly with memory or physical impairments, boredom can contribute to anxiety, depression, or challenging behavior in someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Adult coloring books are great for seniors who have recently moved in with relatives, those displaced by COVID-19 or for those who have become more isolated in a senior or memory care facility.
A research study found that adults 65+ who engage in creative activities such as coloring, painting and knitting had better overall health, made fewer doctor visits, used less medication, and had fewer overall health problems. Creating is also a helpful way to boost mood and relieve stress - making it a perfect activity between caregivers and the ones they care for!
