Nursing Home Humor (Video 2:23 mins.)

So many negative stories circulate about nursing homes, sometimes we need to be reminded of the good times that happen there. From giggles to hysterical howls, the healing effects of laughter contribute positively to everyone’s health.

What makes people laugh in the nursing home world? Animals, children, and humorous situations involving people they know, both real and imaginary, can be hilarious. They laugh about the same things that tickle everybody’s funny bones. A suspense thriller, this video about a pug and a peacock shows why animals are so entertaining.
