Care to People in Need

November 17, 2023

Athens Nursing Home

On Friday, November 17, 2023, the team of Wellbeingr organized a workshop titled "Joy and Laughter for Health and Wellbeing" at the Athens Nursing Home. This event was conducted in collaboration with Antigoni Louka, a highly qualified professional holding degrees in Physical Education and Physiotherapy, and certified as a Joy & Laughter Trainer.

Approximately 20 residents participated in a tailored experience, engaging in simple yet effective exercises designed to bring the benefits of laughter and joy to the forefront. These activities aimed to enhance their physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

It is scientifically proven laughter:

  • Promotes overall health -even more of the elderly.
  • Reinforces the immune system, offering vital natural defenses against diseases
  • Improves physical endurance
  • Elicitates positive emotions
  • Contributes to the management of mental disorders.

Our sincere gratitude goes to the Athens Nursing Home for warmly embracing our initiative. Special appreciation is extended to Olga Charalambopoulou, Head of Social Service and social Worker, and Konstantina Giannakoulas, Social Worker, for their enthusiastic support in the preparation and execution of the workshop. Their openness to incorporating the learned techniques into the daily operations of the Athens Nursing Home is commendable, with the shared goal of continuing to enhance the quality of life for residents.

A heartfelt thank you and warm embrace are extended to our colleague, Antigoni Louka. Her exceptional talent and genuine kindness played a pivotal role in bringing this initiative to life, offering precious moments of joy and wellbeing to our fellow human beings.
