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.
Begin Experiencing the Power of Art
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.
The Art to Wellness® program continues to develop thoughtful, inspirational initiatives that will promote creativity and serenity for our clients. We share information about the ways in which art seamlessly integrates with conscientious, holistic senior care, and how it aligns with our commitment to wellness at every stage of life.

Bringing Families Together With Community Outreach
Approximately 80% of adults provide care to their elderly parents and commonly experience emotional challenges and caregiver stress. Balancing this stress is the key to keep providing the long-term care that is necessary.
We help family members find this balance and connect with their loved ones in a way that is enjoyable and positive. BlueSea Care is proud to offer an enriching, specially designed art program we call Painting With Mom.
Painting with Mom is a positive community outreach initiative established to encourage and enable families to come together in a fun, supportive and socially stimulating setting for senior care. The classes, hosted by local artist and adult coloring book designer, Nora Puls, are free and held at various assisted living facilities, senior centers, nursing homes and adult day care centers across Los Angeles and Orange county.
The city of Seal Beach is thankfully sponsoring the classes that are held at Leisure World – Seal Beach. Follow the link: Register.sealbeachca.gov if you are a Seal Beach resident or sign up here to follow us across South California.
