"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 Doll PeteyBaby Doll Petey is the perfect baby boy in his removable cozy baby blue sleeper and matching night cap scattered with puppies. The happy applique puppy is delightful on his removable bib. He is so adorable with his red hair, hand set blue eyes, hand painted details and hand applied eyelashes.

"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

5 of 5 Baby Doll Petey October 10, 2022
Reviewer: Robin Anderson from Davie, FL United States  
Many of the women in my sister's memory care unit are carrying dolls.  My sister never had children of her own, but I'm hoping Petey will give her company.

An amazing quality!
heavy weighted doll! not like the store bought ones!
this little petey will help many patients
disappointed that we paid so much for shipping then another 49 dollars owed for shipping

Highly recommend this product!
(the arms could be a little thicker for a more real effect)
We are happy that you love Petey! Shipping large items to Canada can become expensive. Duties and import taxes may also increase this cost. Please always check with your customs department when importing items from the United States. Thank you, - The Alzheimer's Store
