Enhanced resident wellbeing through Humour Foundation’s world-first Laughter Care Program
Heritage Care is partnering with the Humour Foundation to provide resident rich, wellbeing environments that lift spirits and improves health through insightful connection, creative play and joyful humour.
Each dementia resident will have access to a world-first Laughter Care Program developed to address their individual psychosocial needs that engages, uplifts and improves their quality of life.
Highly Skilled Laughter Care Practitioners are accepting of people for who they are, here and now, and are uniquely skilled at stepping into the resident’s world that often relaxes the resident to interact on their own terms. We have sound confidence that this partnership will enhance resident wellbeing across the community.
