Therapeutic thematic arts programming for older adults.

Levine Madori, Linda.

Health Professions Press

Levine-Madori (therapeutic recreation and creative arts therapies, St. Thomas Aquinus College) describes how the brain works, and especially how it works late in life, a process that generally benefits from participating in carefully designed activities designed to exercise different parts of the brain. Here Levine-Madori describes her research on how Therapeutic Thematic Arts Programming (TTAP) stimulates the aging brain through visual, sound and tactile activities, and is helpful even for elders who need assistance due to changes in sight, motor skills or hearing.
