Consider the Law of Demand, the Law of Supply, and the Price Elasticity of Demand. Explain how a solid understanding of these, when combined, can help a business improve its performance (e.g. increase sales revenue).
n addition, participants can be active in incorporating humor in their day to day activities. Some suggestive interventions for example, include creating a joke newsletter; providing humor carts to distribute funny books or videos of favorite comedians, or plan “laugh activities” and “fun days”, all of which encourages joyful interaction between staff and residents. Gerontologists need to educate administrators and staff about the benefits of offering a wide variety of mentally stimulating activities at various skill levels and people interacting opportunities particularly with younger people. Last, because a small number of men live in assisted living facilities and attend senior centers, little is known about their hopefulness, humor, and laughter so special attention should be paid to their sources of laughter, preferred activities and skill levels to provide corresponding opportunities (Westburg, 2003). For residents and participants at senior centers diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, Elder-clown visits are a promising new intervention that may improve therapeutic care. Studies noted that residents exhibited less agitation and improved staff-resident relationship. Talking to older individuals and to their family members is another great way to learn about their personal interest and what they enjoyed doing in the past. I would look for ways to individualize the experience by “simulating the activity”. For example, if the person enjoyed going on cruises in the past, but is no longer capable, I would re-create the scene to look like a cruise ship and rent a cruise video of their favorite destination to bring the experience to life. Roper (2012), states therapeutic activities may also fit into more than one specific category. Pet therapy, music therapy, walking clubs, gardening and art events are examples of physical activities. The ability to laugh for social communication is readily lost by dementia patients, at the onset of their illness. The ability may vary by the person which is a developmental decline not a deliberate move. Over time, the ability to laugh and smile disappears in most dementia patients, but it is important to note that not all forms of laughter and smiling are equally reduced. Because those with dementia are impaired by their illness, they can easily feel isolated. Thus, a feeling that unites them, or provides some sort of bond, with their family and the community can be very beneficial. When I decided to explore humor and aging as a topic for my capstone project, I learned during research that humor is everywhere, for example laughter is one of the first things you do as a newborn, and if lucky it will be the last thing you do when you die of old >GET ANSWER
