How Are You Being Creative

How are you being creative?

In the recent issue of Renaissance Magazine (May/June 2011) we featured an article by Mercer County Office on Aging Director, Eileen Doremus. In the article Ms. Doremus talks about creative ways to engage older adults living in residential care settings (assisted livings, nursing facilities, etc). The article also featured some information on how some NJ Activity/Recreation professionals are being creative, as well as, what their challenges are for remaining creative in those settings.

Creativity often grows when you share ideas with others, given that, Ms. Doremus was interested upon completing her article with what others might have to add. So, NJFA gladly welcomes you to share here on our blog and comments, challenges, ideas or feedback on creativity in residential settings for older adults. This has the potential to be a great discussion, so get to it! Creativity is all about sharing!
