Art to Wellness®
Healing Properties of Art Therapy
We are committed to wellness at every stage of life. To support a sense of health and comfort, we offer Art to Wellness® programs to the community.
BlueSea Care Services Art to Wellness® is a proprietary art-based intervention program rooted in music, dance, visual arts, and language arts, including reading, writing and poetry. All of our programs are designed and supervised by experienced behavior specialists and specifically created to engage our elderly clients on a cognitive level while enhancing their lives, furthering our mission to provide innovative senior care with holistic approaches.
Families who experience Art to Wellness® programs experience:
- Higher levels of social engagement
- Better cognition after the artistic activities
- Enhanced, daily activities
- Reduced stress
- Stronger connections with other family members
Research shows that engaging in artistic activities as a part of senior care is a soothing, therapeutic, and stress-relieving formula which improves mood and sharpens focus. While art cannot cure disease or halt symptom progression, it engages attention, stimulates brain activity, helps develop coping skills, and promotes creativity.

An important feature of our Art to Wellness® art-based intervention programs is a series of visually stunning adult coloring books, created for our program by local artist, Nora Puls, the author of Joy and Love. Dr. Stan Rodski, a neuropsychologist, notes that coloring elicits a relaxing mindset, similar to meditation. The utilization of coloring books for senior care encourages participants of the program to engage in a calm, meditative, and mindful activity that supports creative expression.
