The Funny Papers

March is "Humorists Are Artists Month"! People with dementia often retain their sense of humor well into the later stages of their disease, so a great activity is looking at comic strips from the newspaper. You can also check the library or book stores for comic strip books of oldies but goodies, such as Blondie, Garfield, Beetle Bailey, Peanuts, Family Circus, Ziggy, and others. Pro Tip: Dementia can be very frustrating for both those who have it, as well as their caregivers. Making time to laugh together and finding humor in tough situations can go a long way toward preventing burnout and agitation.
