The Humor Therapy Program
The Humor Therapy program powerfully impacts the lives of those in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult care centers with the talents of professional clowns, entertainers, musicians and trained volunteers. The age-old art of clowning sets the stage for therapeutic interaction and reaches far beyond simple entertainment to foster meaningful relationships that bring joy and improve the quality of life for others in need.
The program is acknowledged as “humor with a serious purpose”, addressing the well-being of those in care facilities, on a continuing, year-round basis. Medical studies consistently demonstrate that laughter reduces stress, eases anxiety and depression, decreases pain perception and has a positive, lasting effect on the body’s immune system, heart and brain.
Humor heals… From the one-on-one bedside visitation and conversations, to memory stimulation and physical activities, The Humor Therapy Program enhances the lives of its participants, their family members and the care staff as well.
