“One of the things we teach our caregivers is to take time to be silly or even just to sit quietly. Sometimes we like to make silly faces with our residents or even take selfies. Being silly can be a great redirection tool to get a resident or family member out of a negative mood or a sad day. Try it and let us know if it works for you. And smile. Always.”
