Art at Home for Older Adults 65+
Protocol: STUDY00005174
Full Title
Movers and Makers Art at Home Program
Description
This study enrolls seniors ages 65+. The purpose of this study is to learn whether an in-home, remote art program will be enjoyable and engaging.

The University at Buffalo Center for Successful Aging and Fine Art Miracles are proposing a home-based, remote art-making program for older adults. Our world finds itself in the midst of a major public health crisis with the COVID-19 pandemic. Older adults, most vulnerable, are forced to remain largely isolated, having to give up many socially engaging activities that enhance healthspan and quality of life. We would like to learn whether our program will help increase social connectedness and reduce feelings of isolation.

This study involves participating in a 16-week art program, delivered online. You will also have a one-on-one virtual interview with a staff member to learn more about what would make a program like this work for you. Study takes place 100% remotely in your own home.

Technical Description

(CSR 210138157816) To assess the delivery and impact of a home-based, remote group art program on social connectedness, isloation, and quality of life among older adults.
