Description What We Like Best About This Product

"Someone to Love" Therapy Dolls

Therapy dolls have a remarkable effect on both men and women in the middle and later stages of Alzheimer's disease. They are calming, soothing and bring the person back to a time in their life when they felt useful and had a sense of purpose; when caring for a young family member was the #1 priority. Alzheimer’s doll therapy helps patients escape from a world where someone is always caring for them.

Giving someone a "baby" doll brings them back to that safe and secure time in their life. These sweet little babies are very special, bringing pleasure to anyone who holds them. Their beautiful faces and cuddly bodies can help but make you smile. Dementia care is never easy, but seeing the joy that these dolls bring turns therapy into a rewarding experience that enriches the lives of everyone involved. He weighs three pounds and is about 17 inches long. ...click here to read our article, "Learning About Doll Therapy"

  • Our ‘Alvin’ Therapy Doll is precious with his chubby cheeks, dark brown hair and brown eyes. He has a handmade cream-colored jersey-knit printed bear shirt, a button-up plaid shirt, matching tan pants with plaid cuffs, brown lace-up boots, and a diaper.
  • REALISTIC DETAILS - His brown eyes are outlined by lifelike, hand-applied eyelashes, plus his mouth is slightly opened. He has a hand-painted face, curly brown doll hair, and a light skin tone, and his bean-bag weighted body gives his that cuddly, lifelike feel

"My mother is in an advanced stage of Alzheimers. Her doll is her constant companion. In my mother's mind, the doll is a living being. She cuddles it, talks to it, and exhibits less fearfulness at night when she sleeps with the doll. The familiar occupation of caring for "Little Debbie" seems to remind my mother of her role as an adult. The reduced level of agitation, and even more importantly, the comfort and happiness "Little Debbie" has brought my mother only makes me sad that I did not get her a doll sooner." Jill - Caregiver for her Mother

Reviewer: Kevin Arnold from Sudbury, ON  
This doll has turned my Mom's day into delight from morning till bed.  My Dad cannot believe the calmness and nurturing that has come over my mom who used to be regularly agitated.  I cannot express enough how wonderful this doll has been for my family.
