Now bringing the joy of the arts to seniors in isolation
We are working hard to keep the arts in the lives of isolated seniors in care facilities and individuals at home. Won’t you help us continue this important mission?
Compassionate Artists' Mission
Compassionate Artists is a tax-exempt organization that brings the Joy of Music, Dance, and Art to residential care facilities for financially disadvantaged seniors. We understand the importance of the arts throughout our lifetimes. Participation in the arts can improve cognitive function, lift depression, delay the progression of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, and improve overall health. We are working hard to provide activities, music, and movement programs to our isolated seniors during this COVID crisis. We have delivered daily activities to all of our facilities to help fight depression and relieve boredom.
“I’m alive today because I knew you were coming to visit. You give me something to look forward to.” (Program Participant)
“The arts are a critical component of healthcare. Expressive art is a tool to explore, develop and practice creativity as a means to wellness.”
32% of seniors in the United States are living at or below the poverty level
65% of the individuals we serve have been abandoned by their families or have no living relatives.

We are now delivering individual creative boxes filled with arts supplies and craft projects to our facilities. We create monthly activity books filled with more than 30 activities to engage our participants. We are currently creating videos for our YouTube channel that include sing-alongs, morning stretches, and special performances.

We need talented folks to share their creativity to help create activities, create videos, assist with marketing, and help in a number of different roles, and you can work from home! If you want to be a part of our team, we have a place for you!
There are now thousands of facilities where seniors are battling the isolation that comes with the COVID-19 Virus. Won’t you help us extend our reach by donating today?
