Everyday more baby boomers join the ranks of senior citizens retiring and living alone or to adult communities and senior living arrangements. Many are isolated, lacking family, friends and social contacts. Frequently lonely and sad, many of our senior citizens do not have much to do and be cheerful and happy about. Further, they endure multiple chronic conditions and pain. Most of the time medical needs are being met. More medical treatment is often not the answer. Nor are more government programs the solution. We have a plan to address this situation. But we need help to do it, in the form of private donations and contributions. Let us tell you more about it.
We want to bring joy to our seniors and introduce them to non-medical self-management health programs. Our plan is to bring a campaign to our senior communities offering proven approaches by trained professionals to improve their lives. It's a combination of professional comedian Silver Rose's "Laughter is the Best Medicine" and Healthy Living self-management programs.
Help support our Laughter is the Best Medicine Wellness campaign by bringing professional comedian Silver Rose to Arizona seniors.
Our Laughter is the Best Medicine Wellness campaign provides a series of hour long performances that are not only hilarious comedy shows but also an effective teaching tool for people to learn how and why to add humor to their everyday lives. The program is written, designed and delivered by Silver Rose, age 65, a senior citizen herself. This unique event is unlike any stand-up comedy you have ever seen. Silver blends her own funny stories with nostalgia-inducing one-liners from the comedy greats that audience members remember with fondness.
Silver shares humorous pictures and videos to keep audience attention while making the event more accessible and enjoyable for those whose hearing, eyesight, and cognition aren’t what they used to be.
Participants are also introduced to our Healthy Living, evidence-based self-management workshops. We offer general chronic disease self-management workshops as well as specialized programs that address specific conditions like chronic pain, addiction, diabetes, cancer and balance. Programs offered depend on the needs and interests of participants.
But we need your help to make this very meaningful program available and affordable for our seniors with limited means. Because we are sponsored by Empowerment Systems, a tax exempt non-profit corporation, your donation may be tax deductible. We suggest that you obtain advice from your tax professional to be sure. Thank you for considering us to bring "Laughter Is The Best Medicine" to our seniors in need.
