Coloring may sound like an activity that you once did as a child to pass time. Though this all may be true, coloring now a days is making its way into assisted living.  Studies have proven coloring can have the same results as mediation. Relaxing and calming the mind, among many other wonderful benefits.

Our residents here at Bel Aire Senior Living are all for the coloring. Everyone has their books, and they trade their pictures. It's amazing  how coloring has taken over and how the moods of our residents have improved once coloring started.
