Guidelines for Doll Therapy

Dolls are known to soothe and comfort people with Alzheimer's disease. More women than men will choose a doll to nurture, but many men do benefit from holding a doll, so don't rule out doll therapy for the man or men in your care.

Think about how you will present the doll to your loved one. It’s often better that the doll not be given directly to the person with Alzheimer’s disease, but to leave it somewhere it will be found. This way the individual can make the choice to provide care for the doll, not feel that they are being given the responsibility to do so, which could cause anxiety and possible rejection of the doll.

For Doll Therapy to be effective, it is recommended that you use a doll that is as lifelike as possible. Introduce the doll in the middle stages of Alzheimer's, or even in earlier stage, depending on the individual. Often when introduced later, the person fails to or has a more difficult time making a connection with the doll. Once the connection has been made, the rest is easy. It's a self-administering therapy.

  1.  MELANIE  Available Now

    MELANIE Available Now

    $1,250.00

    The Ultimate in Doll Therapy

    This doll has been handmade, and at the risk of sounding cliche, by craftsmen using only the finest materials.

    Serenity Babies are usually available by special order only, but this one has been premade in the interest of time and is ready to ship today.

    Serenity Babies Specifications:

    • Sculpts (the head, arms, and other parts of the doll that show and look like skin) are made of heirloom quality soft German vinyl.
    • Hair is alpaca or mohair, and micro-rooted. Micro-rooting is a meticulous process whereby individual strands of hair, or a few strands at a time, are rooted into the dolls scalp. (Alpaca is so fine that it would be almost impossible to root one strand at a time.)This method ensures the most realistic results. Hair can be gently washed, brushed and styled.
    • Multiple coats of a special heat set paint result in very realistic skin tones (you can see that from the pictures) — the heat-setting makes the finish extremely durable.
    • Each doll is carefully weighted with glass beads to feel and move just like a real baby when held. The sensory feedback derived from this feature adds a dimension to doll therapy that is not possible from most other dolls.
