Doll Therapy For Dementia

senior-doll-therapyAlzheimer's doll therapy is a known resource in working with dementia patients. Using a Teddy Bear or a Baby Doll can be a very effective way for a person with Alzheimer's or any kind of dementia to decrease stress and agitation. A caregiver can use doll therapy for dementia patients as a way to put responsibility, caring and structure back into the lives of those afflicted with Alzheimer's. Working with a realistic doll has to be introduced to those with Alzheimer's very carefully. A doll or teddy bear can be seen as a welcoming grandchild or the little sibling of their youth or the Alzheimer's patient can fear the therapy doll as an unwanted responsibility.

dementia-patients-doll-therapyFrom experience, introducing doll therapy in a controlled atmosphere by allowing the dementia patient to take responsibility rather than giving them the doll to play with, can bring structure to their lives. The Alzheimer's doll can help a person who is not verbalizing to initiate speech again. It is part of the basic thought process to speak, hum or sing to a baby in your arms. The therapy doll can have its clothes washed, folded and put away and then dressed the next day. With our realistic baby doll Sarah, realistic baby doll Michael,or our companion pets, doll therapy for dementia and Alzheimer's patients can really work!

dementia-doll-therapy “A baby doll can…

  • Calm someone who is upset;
  • Provide endless hours of hugs and smiles;
  • Lull a person to sleep;
  • Create a distraction from a dangerous, harmful or upsetting event;
  • Serve as an attention-getter;
  • Provide a tool for social interaction;
  • Regenerate warm, nurturing feelings of once again caring for a young child;
  • Make it possible for someone, totally dependent upon others, to care for ‘someone’ else.”

Nothing eases distress and agitation as quickly or effectively as a friend. Our teddy bears and Alzheimer’s dolls are more than just toys, they are a source of comfort and security when your loved one needs it most. Having a small, familiar face to cradle and care for creates an engaging environment that encourages Alzheimer’s patients to interact with and it encourages healthy emotional responses. These therapies are more than just a distraction; they provide an outlet for someone to step out of their world of being totally dependent on others and to feel like they have something that depends on them. Memory loss therapy is never an easy process, but it can be made easier with the appropriate tools and tactics. Doll and teddy bear therapy allows patients to be a participant in their own healthcare, rather than just a subject.

Our Blaney Bear is soft and cuddly! Just squeeze his “paws button” and he will play your favorite tunes! His soft body and soft fur make him a wonderful companion for your loved one to interact with.
