Laughter Yoga a Stress Relief for Dementia Patients

Residents of Lester Senior housing took a Laughter Yoga class with Pradep Nair of HomeWell Senior Care to kick off their July the right way.

Elderly people can often suffer from anxiety and depression, especially if they are isolated in nursing homes or hospitals. The laughing and breathing exercises of Laughter Yoga are especially suitable for older people, since they are fun, safe, easy and economical. Laughter Yoga often relieves stress, even for patients with Alzheimer’s or dementia who no longer comprehend humor as they once did. Yet when they laugh with others at Laughing Yoga, they receive emotional benefits from spending time interacting and bonding with other people.
