Arts for the Aging engages older adults and their professional and family caregivers in health improvement and life enhancement through regular participation in the multidisciplinary arts. Arts for the Aging’s vision, in the Greater Washington D.C. region and beyond, is to model and promote how important dignity and compassion are in the care of older adults, and that arts interventions provide accessible, healthful, and uplifting ways to cope with changing abilities as we age-sparking imagination, lifting spirits, and creating social bonds integral to happiness, vitality, and good health. This is why we call our signature program, Joy in Generation.
