The secret to life is enjoying the passage of time.
- James Taylor
What brings joy to your life? What brings you peace?
PurposeFULL Living is a balanced, whole person view of wellness, and as such it supports not just physical fitness or intellectual stimulation but emotional wellness. Neighbors and team members help residents cultivate self-awareness. Being in touch with emotions, finding inner peace results in smiles, laughter and an ability to tackle life's inevitable challenges with grace.
Art and Healing
When her husband began suffering the early effects of Alzheimer’s disease, artist Helen Meyrowitz used her lifelong talents as a professional artist to express her emotions.
The drawings (such as "Maelstrom," above) are a moving tribute to her beloved Sidney and the healing power of art. Helen heard a calling deep inside this sense of loss and began to focus her energies on helping others. She began serving on as a board member for the MA/NH Alzheimer’s Association and created workshops to help caregivers cope with loss through the healing power of art.
Helen Meyrowitz’ passion: art as an avenue for deep emotional expression.
