This book explores the potential for origami to improve the lives of adult seniors by bonding them with fellow residents and instructors while providing a gentle cognitive exercise. These pages contain reasons why you should teach origami in senior homes, the step by step process of volunteering, and a collection beautifully photographed origami designs and links to instructions (pdfs with diagrams) that seniors enjoy the most. Along with insider tips about how to teach seniors in general and what they find most satisfying, the book provides a rich, creative description for each of the selected models. The descriptions provide tips to make the folding process easier, how you can modify the models, and how you can display the origami.
All proceeds from this book will be donated to the OrigamiUSA Scholarship Fund.
