ONE LAUGH
AT A TIME.

Laughter On Call’s ‘Comedy Care’ fosters shared laughter which creates much needed connection with loved ones.

For seniors with Alzheimer’s or other dementias one-on-one time with a comedian can bring joy and ward off isolation. Our group comedy shows bring energy and laughter to everyone. And our training workshops for care providers—staff and family—teach proven tools to foster more humor to help through hard times.
