The American Geriatrics Society published findings of a pilot research study that shows clowning around does improve the quality of life for people with dementia.
This video provides an overview of the approach and methodology utilized in the study and embraced by the Humour Foundation, an elder clown program administrator. Elder clowns are specially trained to be highly skilled performers that bring the healing power of humor to care facilities and dementia centers.
OPICA understands the value of engagement for people with dementia and we salute the Humour Foundation for bringing awareness to the joys still possible for people with memory loss. To learn more about our Adult Day Program click HERE.
