CONCORD — Five groups are getting Arts in Health grants from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts to help veterans, Alzheimer's patients and others.

The grants support arts activities, presentations and artist residencies in health care facilities, rehabilitation centers and facilities that serve the elderly.

Recipients are Behavioral Health and Developmental Services of Strafford County, to support an artist residency at Riverside Rest Home; Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center, to continue the expansion and development of its adaptive dance program; Easter Seals N.H., for a program that integrates visual arts practices into its Alzheimer's Café; Keene Senior Center, to help fund an artist residency with traditional musicians; and the New Hampshire Veterans Home, to support two concerts for New Hampshire Veterans, their families and the public.
