How Art Benefits Older Adults

FACULTY Raquel StephensonArt and Aging - How Creative Expression Can Benefit Older Adults
Lesley Professor Dr. Raquel Stephenson taps into the healing powers of art, and employs creative endeavors as a means of keeping the elderly connected and engaged with the world around them.
