Humor and Laughter Provide Benefits to Help Home Care Providers Keep Your Parents Healthy

If a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, can you imagine how a little humor and laughter could add to ahome care healthier life as well? We all know that laughter is a universal language and whether your parent is verbal or not, or even if the home care aid doesn’t speak the same language as mom or dad, they both can laugh together. Laughter triggers positive energy and often for your elderly parent that is the best elixir that healthcare can provide.

When the choice to hire home care for mom or dad is made your mother or father may feel anxious having someone caring for them, even when they may recognize they need assistance. No one ever wants to admit that they are no longer the independent individual they once were. However, adding humor to the situation and providing your parent the opportunity to participate in feeling the results of the positive triggers may overcome any resistance.

Experts explain that when your mother or father laughs their entire body will relax, they will be relieved of stress, and their muscles will relax. The stress hormone, cortisol gets released in the body minimizing pain and reducing inflammation. Cortisol may help your mom or dad regain a little of their independence back and work in tandem with their caregiving provider who will become more of a companion.

Mentally, researchers suggest that humor and laughter open the body and brain to clearer thinking and engaging in conversations and social activities. Social engagements for seniors promote emotional well-being and positive emotions no matter where they occur here in the Dayton, OH area. Home care experts suggest that they have noted many seniors regain their independence once they allow humor and laughter back into their lives, enjoying the little things in life.
