Description

The Fountain of Humor for Seniors available as an eBook and in Audio files is a collection of jokes and stories targeted to seniors 50+. These jokes can be read and listened to by the senior him- or herself or read and/or played to them by the people who live, work or love them. The material is helpful to mind and body. It is funny, tasteful and likely to make most seniors laugh out loud.

It's all about feeling good, feeling much better, reducing sad feelings, healing mind and body. All anyone needs to do is to laugh loud and long to feel good and better. Yes, it works. It's not a cure-all for aging and not a Fountain of Youth . . . simply a Fountain of Humorâ?¢ for seniors. It is a supply of funny jokes and stories that really helps, for a while, to reduce the depression about aging, the loss of loved ones, chronic illness, loss of sight, sound and mobility.

Our jokes and stories are provided through our unique process of selection, customization and cleansing by our "Joke-Jury." This combined publication of text and audio has been designed so that:

A blind or partially blind person can hear the jokes and laugh.
A deaf or partially deaf person can see the jokes and laugh.
A healthy person can see and hear the jokes and laugh.
Even the dying find something to laugh about for a moment in time and will ask for more jokes.

My father-in-law, terminally ill with cancer, called often in his last year asking my wife and me to read a joke or two to him. Hearing him laugh from miles away also opened the door to comforting conversation and made it easier for all of us. This is mighty important for all of us.

An 85-year-old, losing her mental capacities, repeatedly asked for our jokes to be read to her. It comforted her right up to her passing.

A professional woman purchased the set for "signing" to groups of deaf people. She works with them as the audio version plays the jokes for her.

Instructions are provided on how to read them to diverse senior audiences in institutional settings or families or to their friends.

We believe that the elderly, infirmed, families or just two people enjoy the togetherness and communal feeling that laughter brings. People love having jokes read to them. That "legitimizes" laughing out loud. Everyone wants to laugh, whether they are kids age 1 or 100.

Guidance to Those Who Read or Play Our Jokes and Stories to Seniors
 
1. Laughing out loud, and louder yet . . . is vital. Encourage it and model it.
2. Prepare by reading, knowing and mastering the joke. Laugh along with the CDs to learn.
3. Playing our CDs of Doc reading with handouts of the jokes will also work well.
4. You can play our CDs with a PowerPoint presentation on a screen.
5. Reading to people who can see the jokes and stories is important.
Why?
1. It works best!
2. Laughing is best, healthiest in a group of two or one hundred. It is communal and contagious.
3. Great in one-to-one even with the seriously ill.
6. Don’t cover too many at one time, based on your knowledge of your audience.
7. The repetition of jokes that work well is well worth it. People love hearing a good joke or story again—most of us “butcher” jokes in telling them after we hear or read them. This can’t happen when using the Fountain of Humor way . . .
8. You can access the precise jokes on the CDs because they are listed in order for you.
9. Feel free to reproduce the text for your own needs.
10. The Three Ways to Use Them:
1. Play CDs with Doc reading and handout text to groups or individuals.
2. Master the telling of the jokes, as Doc does on the CDs.
3. For Special Needs.
Examples of Special Needs:
1. Our 23-year old recording engineer loves them for his grandmother— and as a part-time bartender he loves telling them to older patrons.
2. My father-in-law, terminally ill, called often in his last year asking my wife and me to read a joke or two to him. Hearing him laugh from miles away also opened the door to comforting conversation and made it easier for all of us.
3. An 85-year old, losing mental capacities, at first enjoyed and then repeatedly asks for our jokes to be read to her.

Not a cure-all for aging and not a Fountain of Youth.
It is simply, a supply of funny jokes and stories that truly helps for a while to reduce depression about aging, loss of loved ones, chronic illness, loss of sight, sound and mobility and then . . . it works again and again.
An elixir of joy
A blind or partially blind person can hear the jokes and laugh

A healthy person can see and hear the jokes and laugh.

The Jokes
with Dr. Richard G. Lazar
 
 
Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder (Track 001, 3:00)
 
This is how it manifests:
 
I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide my car needs washing.
 
As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.
 
I lay my car keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first.
 
But then I think, since I’m going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage any- way, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left.
 
My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking. I’m going there to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don’t accidentally knock it over. I realize the Coke is getting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
 
As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye—they need to be watered. I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I’ve been searching for all morning.
