The Art of Retirement
The Art of Retirement is tailored to participants’ interests and strengths at this stage of life. The activities deliberately foster meaningful engagement, connection, and creative self-expression, all key to quality of life. Activities in music, dance, poetry, painting, and theatre are geared towards improving physical coordination, relieving stress, reducing depression, developing new interests, deepening friendships, and building social connectedness.
The Art of Retirement is designed specifically for aging adults with developmental and cognitive disabilities. Aging in this context is relative.
