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"

Baby Izzy
Come join the party! Birthday Baby Izzy is just a doll in her precious white eyelet dress with all the pink frills. Fancy appliquéd balloons and a cupcake with a yellow candle decorate the front. Pink streamers cascade from a neat polka-dot bow at the waist. From her polka dot bow-tied sandy blond pigtails, to her pink scalloped sandals she is a lovable gift all wrapped up in birthday magic. Make a wish!

"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

Reviewer: Susan from DE  
I was very unsure how my mother with dementia would react to the doll.  She cried and loves her.  No regrets on buying her.  I'm very pleased with how Izzy looks.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Pine Island, MN United States  
Doll was marketed as an ideal gift for adults w/Alzheimer’s. Package wording on the box, the doll comes in, boasts about being a play doll for toddlers. Adults with Alzheimer’s can still read!!
If you are marketing toward a targeted group, the packaging should reflect the same. Otherwise, doll was as expected.
"Thank you for your review and feedback. I wanted to reach out just to explain the thought behind our products. There are few products made specifically for adults with dementia. For those few products, we avoid those that actually say Alzheimer's or Dementia on them. For as we know, most end users can read, and we do not want to offend or alarm them. Many of the products we sell are children's products, but they were hand selected for their benefits to aging adults. For example, for their weight, durability or quality. We suggest offering gifts to those with dementia, especially animals and dolls, without their packing. First, the packaging can be confusing, second, many folks believe the animal or doll is real. When it comes in a box, they can become frightened or think its a toy rather than a comforting companion." We hope this helps! - The Alzheimer's Store

Reviewer: Susie Morales from Philadelphia, PA United States  
I found that the doll helped my mother, but it would be nice if the doll arms and legs fell like a real baby and if the dolls eyes would close so that she can go to sleep when my mother  goes to sleep.  My mother has dementia and she is going back when she had small kids and the doll has help a lot.  Thank you.
