Creative Aging Network – North Carolina

From Creative Aging Network – NC’s Facebook page:

“Located in Greensboro, the Creative Aging Network – NC (CAN-NC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing access to creative programming for older adults throughout the state. Artists work in the community with existing aging service providers to implement creative classes such as painting, dancing, singing, poetry, writing and storytelling. When implemented with staff support and participation, creative programs enhance the person-centered care concept and honor the voices of elders as well as those working closest with them.

CAN-NC also partners with universities to conduct research on originally designed programs. Through this collaborative work we can better meet our goal of improving the quality of life of older people through the creative arts.”
