KlinikClowns -
The gift of laughter

Laughter for feeling good

Laughter for feeling good

The KlinikClowns were founded in 1998 and since then have been conducting regular “rounds” of professional clowns in Bavarian homes for the elderly and children’s hospitals. Over the years, the association has enjoyed increasing popularity, which is why it now also makes visits to facilities for the disabled, wards for seriously ill adult patients and palliative wards, and hospices.

PMG has supported this project for many years and is pleased about the growing number of therapeutic facilities, clinics and homes where visits by the KlinikClowns are now firmly integrated into everyday life.

Everyday life of the KlinikClowns

The KlinikClowns with visits to:

18

CHILDREN

In children’s hospitals, clowns bring fun and distraction from the stresses of hospitalization. They take the little patients on a fun journey where they forget about homesickness, fear and pain. Interaction with the clowns supports the healing process, strengthens the mental state and gives the children new forces.

7

SENIORS

Fun, musical entertainment and empathy inspire a new enthusiasm for life. Interaction is in the foreground during visits to senior citizens’ homes. Special seminars, supervision and many years of experience also enable the clowns to deal with people suffering from dementia.

17

PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

The active experiencing is often limited in severely disabled people. The clowns give them the opportunity to relax and convey joy of life through the positive atmosphere they create. New energies are released and a feeling of freedom is created. Above all, acceptance and selfless action are in the foreground here.

15

SERIOUSLY ILL ADULTS

Patients who have cancer or leukemia suffer not only physically but also psychologically. Laughter allows people to escape reality for a while, forgetting fears and worries. It gives new strength and serves the therapy that these people go through.

Humor therapy
for body and mind

It is scientifically proven that humor and laughter have positive effects on the healing process and the state of health in general. Humor therapy strengthens the body and mind and has a positive effect in many ways:

  • Physiologically: humor stimulates and strengthens the human organism.
  • Emotionally: humor releases negative feelings and inhibitions
  • Cognitively: humor awakens creative potential and imagination
  • Humor is contagious, provides interpersonal exchange and stimulates interaction
