1 summer VOlUME 21, IssUE 3 Surviving Dementia through Laughter Excerpt from a post by National Care Planning Council Mark Twain wrote, The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand. Professionals across the medical field agree that laughter is an effective medicine. It s been shown to improve connections with others, increase blood flow to protect the heart, boost immune cells to fight infection, decrease stress through the discharging of physical and emotional tension, and trigger release of endorphins to relieve pain. But can the effects of laughter extend beyond the basic health benefits? Could it be used as a treatment for even the most devastating and incurable diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer s? Debbie Harbinson, a certified laughter leader and outreach program manager at Banner Alzheimer s Institute, wrote: For those with dementia, laughter can be instrumental in diffusing conflict and expelling the negative energy that so often causes them to retreat. To further prove this theory, a group of humor therapists in New South Wales started the SMILE study. Over the course of three years, these humor therapists worked on 400 dementiastricken people and found a twenty percent reduction in the patients agitated behavior like wandering, screaming, and aggression. Speaking about the results of the study, Anne-Marie Botek from AgingCare.com said, Laughter may be just as effective as antipsychotic medications for reducing anxiety in elderly people with dementia. Part of the SMILE study was conducted in Summit Care nursing where the owner, Barry Cowling, said that because of the humor therapy they were able to reduce psychotropic drugs or even have some of the patients come off of psychotropic drugs completely. We had a woman who was totally non-verbal who started to have conversations with staff and her family, Cowling said. The effects of the laughter therapy had reduced aggression and depression so well that Cowling and many other nursing homes made the laughter therapy permanent after the study. There s no refuting the effect and change that laughter can have in dementia patients, but it s still not a cure. Dementia and other more serious diseases such as Alzheimer s are difficult living with but even more difficult to experience as a caregiver or family member watching your loved one dissipate and forget who you are. As with many difficult situations in life, laughter can be used to help you and your loved ones view dementia in a new light. Laughter in these cases should not only be used to benefit the patient but should also be utilized by caregivers and family members who are also suffering. People with dementia can sense the stress and unhappiness in those around them. You have a duty not only to yourself but to your loved ones to try to make the situation and environment as cheerful as possible. Gary LeBlanc talks about his experience learning to accept laughter as a caregiver for someone with Alzhiemer s disease. He said: There is no doubt that there s Continued on page 6 Practical Support for Coping with Dementia LAUGHTER IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL.

4 BOOK REVIEW by Jessica MacDonald, LCSW Recently, a caregiver recommended the book Surviving Alzheimer s: Practical Tips and Soul-Saving Wisdom for Caregivers by Paula Spencer Scott. The title alone peaked my interest, and I was not disappointed! The format of the book is easy to follow. The author and array of contributors are knowledgeable and relatable. They speak from professional and personal knowledge. Particularly helpful are the real life examples of challenges provided, followed by explanations of the challenge and possible interventions. Readers will find helpful information on the disease process as a whole, communication difficulties and opportunities, behavioral symptoms and management of, signs and symptoms of caregiver burnout and available resources. The author includes topics sometimes avoided in the overall discussion of memory impairment, like issues relating to sexuality and family dynamics, that many readers will find helpful. I recommend this book for caregivers needing another tool and resource to use in their daily journeys with their loved ones.
