“Last year we started something new by actually including videos of memory care patients telling jokes,” commented event organizer Jessica DeNardo. “The crowd loved it and it was a meaningful way to remind guests why they were at the show. It’s amazing the power that a little laughter can have.”
After seeing the benefits that laughter could have on patients, The Vital Life Foundation’s sister company, Marquis Companies, piloted a program integrating improv into its activity sessions for patients. They found that patients love the activities and that improv requires little to no recollection of the past with a sincere focus on living in the present moment.
Oh, and there’s beer and wine, food, a raffle and a silent auction!
