I have been providing Art Therapy Projects for Seniors in Assisted Living facilities here in Ocala, Florida. I am currently working at Superior Residences - Memory Care and Life Care a Rehabilitation Facility. However due to the down turn in our economy, funding for this project is quite limited. I have a Master’s degree and many years of teaching experience in both public and private schools . I have also taught in the Enrichment Program at The College Of Central Florida. My teaching certification is valid with the State of Florida through 2016. I am also a Professional Guardian certified, licensed and bonded by The State Of Florida and the National Guardianship Association. My IRS 501c3 was received on October 28, 2012 prepared by the Law Firm of Metcalf and Mac Rae in Tallahassee Florida. It was also reviewed by the accounting firm of Thomas Triplett in Gainesville, Florida.
I provide much more than simple entertainment. The program I have designed not only increases memory, but manual dexterity and neuro-sensitive abilities. The participants achieve certain skills that improve inter-personal relationships through our small group activities.. It also gives them an activity not only to build on but something to look forward to in their next session. There are no other Art Therapists practicing in this area . We have a very large population of Senior Citizens in our immediate vicinity. The need is definitely there.
