Description What We Like Best About This Product

"Someone to Love" Therapy Dolls

Therapy dolls have a remarkable effect on women (and men) 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.

They weigh three pounds and are about 20 inches long. ...click here to read our article, "Learning About Doll Therapy"

Baby William is in his cute little pajamas with puppy bib. His blue eyes shine.

"My mother is in an advanced stage of Alzheimer's. 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

5 of 5 Great Doll May 31, 2017

This doll really helped my mom.   She was always looking for her little ones and this doll has proven to be very soothing to her.  Before resorting to drug therapy to relieve the anxiety the doll has allowed us to avoid that.
