Creativity in Later Life


From the abstract:

Creativity is not a timebound act nor a function of chronological age. Many older individuals engage in the creative process, and creative acts can help put into place the meaning of life and the meaning of aging. Older adults participating in the arts have experienced well‐being and life satisfaction. This article discusses the role of creativity in the lives of older adults, strategies for nurturing creativity, and training programs in creativity for the elderly.
