Feeling creative? Dust off the easel and sharpen those pencils, because the Senior Art Contest is a fantastic way to fulfill your creative drive! And if pencils and paint aren't your favorite mediums, why not take your camera out for a spin? Photography is accepted too!
See the 2012 Senior Art Contest Flyer and Rules (PDF) for more.
The Agency coordinates a Senior Art Contest for those aged 55 and over each late summer/fall. Submissions can include paintings, drawing or photography. The entries are judged by local professionals in the field of art and are then hung in a local venue for the public’s enjoyment. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards are given and all individuals receive a participation ribbon. The contest is promoted in August each year and entries are usually due in early September. This is a great way to showcase your talent and/or try something new!

Sunshine and Smiles
Sunshine & Smiles is an intergenerational play group. The group, facilitated by a volunteer, allows parents and their typically pre-school age children and nursing home residents to connect and interact. The group meets once a month and benefits all involved. As one resident at Rosewalk Village said, “This is the best day I’ve ever had.” These visits are especially meaningful to those residents whose family members are not able to visit very often. Children who don’t live near their grandparents or great-grandparents also benefit by getting to spend time with an older generation.
Raising Awareness of Chronic Care Management
Nearly half of all adults in America live with at least one chronic disease. Typical healthcare can not always deal with each individual's needs. However, there are strategies that everyone can tailor to fit their own personality and lifestyle. A few healthcare professionals are embracing these strategies across the country, bringing the issue of chronic pain management to light and raising awareness in insurance companies.
