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 17 inches long. ...click here to read our article, "Learning About Doll Therapy"

oliver-therapy-doll-for-dementia-0510-2 Baby Oliver is back and YES he is a prince! Take one look at this adorable young man and we’re sure you won’t be able to resist the temptation of giving him a “royal” kiss on the cheek. Wearing a green jumper with frog appliqué on the front, and matching striped cap, he is sure to charm your heart.

"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

Baby Doll Oliver for my Mother July 15, 2015
Reviewer: T.A. Hassan from North York, ON Canada  
My mother has very advanced stage Alzheimer's. She recently grew fond of an old doll that used to belong to my daughter. This got me researching on Doll Therapy and I came across the Alzheimer's Store. I wanted my mother to have a doll that felt more real. When Baby Oliver was delivered I knew this was exactly what I had been looking for. The weight, agility and details gave it that special touch and warmth which the regular doll didnt have. We have recently introduced Oliver to my mother and she took an instant liking to him, and is almost possessive about him. Time will tell what other benefits it has, but for now, having a baby to care for does keep her calmer, happy and occupied.
I also want to mention how helpful the staff has been. UPS was asking us for Cash on Delivery due to customs duty. However, this was already paid for in the shipping. We contacted the store via phone and they were very helpful and prompt in getting the problem sorted! Very caring and helpful staff!!
