Senior Care Art

Pamela Alderman designs extraordinary, gallery-quality projects for retirement community seniors living with changing abilities. Under Pamela's guidance, residents can participate in daily workshops over a two-week period. Each fun workshop is designed for appropriate levels of difficulty across all levels of care. By working together, participants experience meaningful relational connections and a sense of hope.

Senior care projects are agents of resilience and healing. One grandmother shared her personal story. “After my cancer treatment,” she said, “I couldn't write at all for several months. But I was able to write on this butterfly!” Her emotional and physical well-being increased as she experienced renewed hope through the art-making process.

Pamela is truly gifted in utilizing art to deeply connect with older adults and help them express themselves. She instilled confidence in those who didn't consider themselves artists and brought out some powerful memories with the residents.
