Humor therapy increasing well being for dementia patients

If you have had the experience of having a loved one go through the pain of dementia, you will know that any distraction is a good thing.

Elder clowns are proving to be very helpful in engaging dementia patients, with patients reporting a reduction in agitation and staff and families feeling less stress as a result.

New research into elder clowns is adding to existing research that supports the use of humour therapy for a wide range of illnesses to improve wellbeing.
