Caregiving has its funny moments
Funny moments can happen while you’re caring for an older adult.
Of course, chronic illnesses and devastating diseases like Alzheimer’s are certainly no laughing matter. But even in the middle of the worst day, there’s still room for laughter.
Giving yourself permission to notice when funny things happen and encouraging your older adult to do the same eases tension and makes life more positive for both of you.
We explain why it’s helpful to find humor in caregiving, why you shouldn’t feel guilty about it, and share funny stories from real caregivers.
