“This study showed that laughter therapy with more intense physical activities reduced depression and improved sleep among the participants in the LTC hospitals. To improve depression and sleep quality in older adults, laughter therapy strengthening physical activities might be beneficial if it can be offered more than two times a week. The findings of this study suggest that laughter therapy must enhance more physical activities to improve depression and sleep.”
