Realistic Comfort Therapy Doll for Alzheimer's & Memory Care
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 and loved-ones escape from a world where someone is always caring for them.
The simple act of cuddling a baby doll can help reestablish nurturing feelings, provide a sense of purpose, express emotions and bring joy and comfort therapy for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia. These heartwarming benefits inspired Kayla, a lifelike baby doll custom-designed for memory care individuals. Kayla the Comfort Baby Doll, is a very special issue in the So Truly Real® line of award-winning baby dolls developed by Ashton Drake.
Expertly crafted to look and feel as lifelike as possible, Kayla is poseable with a perfectly weighted soft cloth body that feels just right in a senior's loving arms. Her head is proportionately weighted as well, requiring gentle support just like a real infant. Her head, arms and legs are crafted of smooth RealTouch® vinyl, and her baby-fine hair is hand-rooted to look and feel natural. Kayla arrives in a pink velour sleeper and cap that are just as snuggly as she is. And, making this So Truly Real® collectible doll even more meaningful, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to support Alzheimer's research!
