CLIENTS & REVIEWS

Here are some reviews from some of our clients. Whether it’s a residential community, a business, or a family, we love hearing that our work, and our laughter, has made a difference.

LAUGHTER FOR BIZ REVIEWS

My work teams have been in a rut of endless and repetitive team huddles and virtual hang outs to stay connected.  Attendance and engagement have been plummeting.  We invited the Laughter on Call team to host our latest team get together and it was fantastic!  Everyone on my team got involved and I saw some smiles and personality quirks that I had not seen in a long time!  It was just so much fun and a huge morale boost for the team.  As soon as it ended people were asking when we can have another one!

Mark Bower Director | KPMG Denver

Working with Dani and Jeneta was such a fun experience for our team. We were looking for something that would get everyone engaged since zoom calls can be awkward and it worked out great! Everyone on the team opened up and interacted, forging a bond between us all.”

Juhi Pikale Director of Paid Social | TechStyle Fashion Group

Who knew that getting together a group of family caregivers online from up and down the southeastern United States could be so much fun? Oftentimes family caregivers need to be reminded to be silly, laugh, have fun, breath, stretch, and hang out with others just like them. Dani and her staff helped us do – just that! We have already had folks suggest we plan these events several times a year! We can’t think of a better endorsement. THANK YOU LAUGHTER ON CALL!!

Alexis Williams Executive Director | Caregiver Connect

“Vulnerability and authenticity are vital to being a great leader, what better way is there to share this than with humor. Dani’s work with our associates has proven to be valuable in building those teams who not only provide care but care about our residents who are living with dementia. In addition, it has been transformational for the associates to see not only how our residents respond to the work of Laughter On Call but its lasting effect.”

Kathy Greene | retired Senior Vice President, Program and Services Integration, Silverado Senior Communities

“Laughter On Call created a training series for HFC to bring to our family caregivers during the COVID-19 crisis. Every week, we bring caregivers together and provide them with Laughter On Call’s unique approach. It is great to see so many caregivers connect with laughter!”

Alexandra Villano | Senior Director of Program Development & Strategy, Hilarity for Charity

“Dani ran workshops that helped us to experience and learn how we can use the power of laughter in our work. The techniques that she shared have assisted our staff to consciously use humor to alleviate stress and to support our interactions with residents and their families. I hope that you get an opportunity to laugh and work with Dani.”

Patricia Murphy
 | The Watermark, Beverly Hills, CA

“Our participants’ feedback was consistent, “We want more.” The positive effect of the class lasted for hours after the class ended. We were so impressed by Laughter on Call and their ability to use comedy as a way to connect and engage with those with dementia, we have signed up to have them train our staff.”

Molly Fisher | LCSW 
Director of Program Innovation and Education, Inspīr|Carnegie Hill

“Laughter On Call’s approach is so accessible and brings caregivers and loved ones living with Alzheimer’s together in a way that we need more of, especially now. They give us simple reminders like breathing, along with new tools like improv to help create such an important connection and shared experience of laughter.”

Lauren Miller Rogan
 | Founder, Hilarity for Charity

“Thank you Laughter On Call for facilitating a fun session that gave everyone a nice break in the middle of the day! It was a really fun time to let our guards down.”

Jackson Foster | MBA Candidate at UCLA Anderson

LAUGHTER FOR SENIORZ REVIEWS

“Dani and her team at Laughter on Call are such an incredible group of people – they have brought joy to many of our resident’s lives during this time of isolation and sadness! I am so grateful for all their hard work and dedication. They have formed meaningful bonds within our community and make us laugh!”

Rebecca Murray | Lifestyle Coordinator, Fountainview at Gonda Westside

“Almost twenty 6th graders joined in our Improv class with Laughter on Call and the children, residents and associates had a blast! The children had a great sense of humor and really got into the improv mode! Both students and residents built a story worth remembering filled with roller coaster rides and much more!”

Juliana Rocha | Senior Director of Resident Engagement, Silverado Beverly Place

“It’s not always easy or natural to meet someone where they are in Dementia Land. But when it happens, that primal source of humor is still there that lets two people share a moment of joy maybe just because a laugh is infectious and doesn’t need to make sense.”

Amy Harding | Portland, ME

“We had the privilege of having Dani at a workshop for both our team and our families. It’s usually pulling teeth to get most excited and to even attend a workshop, but our team and families raved about their experience and were so happy that they attended Dani’s workshop. There is definitely something to the saying that Laughter is the Best Medicine!”

Dan Harrah
 | Executive Director, Silverado, Scottsdale, AZ

“I had read the article in AARP about Laughter on Call and thought it was a great way to bring a smile to my 90 year old mom’s face – which I hadn’t seen in quite a while. Allan was kind and personable and interacted directly with Mom. I could see her hand moving to the music and smiling when she recognized the tunes he was playing. At one point, Mom said ‘That was wonderful! Now you can go!’ It was priceless!”

Jeri Landon | Los Angeles, CA

Thank you so much for a great session at the LeadingAge Annual Meeting! It was fun, you taught skills that we can apply immediately, and highlighted program options that I’m sure our members will be interested in bringing into their communities. On the technical side, I have to thank you so much for how you ran the program! You kept things running so smoothly and with great direction!

Jodi Eyigor | Director, Nursing Home Quality & Policy, LeadingAge 

“When I had to go out of town for an extended period of time, Laughter On Call came to my rescue! They provided a trustworthy companion to spend one on one time with my mom, someone who brightens her day and takes good care of her. Also, Dani works hard to accommodate your loved ones needs and schedule.”

Christina Chang | Los Angeles, CA

My husband has Alzheimers and since all his programs have been suspended, I have had a hard time keeping him stimulated. All he wants to do is sleep. Today we Connected with you on Zoom and he laughed and took part. It was awesome. His photo right after we connected is below. We will be back!

Debby and Pat | Apple Valley, MN

LAUGHTER FOR KIDZ REVIEWS

“I noticed [my son’s] confidence increasing along with his ability to articulate stories. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with the group and has requested more Laughter For Kids.”

Kristin Asadourian | Son – age 12

“…we have spoken a lot about many of the things they learned from all your talented teachers. You all are masters of virtual teaching, seamlessly incorporating group games and engaging all the children, even those who are a bit more reluctant, while also honoring their personal boundaries. It was such a delight to hear everyone’s uproarious laughter in our living room daily.”

Valentine Hemmingway | Kids – age 7 & 11

“Laughter On Call, I wanna give you all a shout out. You made my very unfunny teenager into a very funny stand up. Seriously, you helped us weather the pandemic, our kid loved your classes, looked forward to them every day and actually we got a kick out of listening to them too. From the kitchen. Secretly. — So thank you.”

David Schneiderman | Daughter – age 15

“She loved it and has started working on some stand-up! Keep us posted on any other LOC programs!”

Alexandra Villano | Daughter – age 15
