Art East: Priscilla Betz's combines therapy and creativity

Slidell Adult Day Care has been utilizing creative programs for the past two years and loving the results. The older adults are happier, more social and more interested. Dwight Denham, administrator for Slidell Adult Day Care at 3401 Pontchartrain, said, “The intent of adult day health care is two-fold. It keeps people active and teaches them skills to help them stay out of institutions as well as helps provide caregivers rest by providing services outside the home.” The arts program has certainly achieved this, engaging less confident members of the community and getting people painting, talking and most importantly laughing.
