For many of our residents living with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, doll therapy can be very effective. 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.
