A Spark of Creativity” is this year's theme for National Assisted Living Week, which hopes to inspire residents to tap into their creative side, whether through the arts or beyond.

Specifically, residents should explore art therapy as it can offer many benefits to older adults, such as improving cognitive and sensory-motor functions, fostering self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivating emotional resilience, enhancing social skills, and reducing and resolving conflicts and distress, according to the American Art Therapy Association.
