Active Programming

Wilder’s Adult Day Health programs boast a wide range of arts enrichment and health activities. Thanks to numerous community partners, the Adult Day Health schedule is always packed with activities that keep minds and bodies healthy and active. We also take regular field trips to museums and historic sites. 
Some examples of our arts activities and partners include:
• Pottery with Northern Clay Center
• Painting with artist Sandra Menefee Taylor
• Songwriting with musician Charlie Maguire
• Dance with Kairos Alive
• Poetry through the Alzheimer's Poetry Project
