"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 the doll seems to remind my mother of her role as an adult. The reduced level of agitation, and even more importantly, the comfort and happiness she has brought my mother only makes me sad that I did not get her a doll sooner." Jill - Caregiver for her Mother
