“Often, we think an accident will never happen to us,” says Nancy Clanton, Community Relations Director at Tuscan Gardens® of Venetia Bay in Venice, Florida. “Many seniors think that they won’t suffer a serious fall, or that fall prevention is just common sense. But as we see time and again, accidents can happen to any of us.”
When we think about caring for an ill or aging loved one, humor and laughter are not words that typically come to mind. Rather, we think about responsibility, stress and sacrifice. We generally approach caregiver health with serious self-care practices that reflect the serious nature of our caregiving role. But, something as simple and natural as humor can offer amazing health benefits as well.
