Giving a gift is a wonderful way to present a new activity. If that gift is tied to special day, like a birthday or holiday, the act of gifting can, in a small but significant way, be reality therapy. Take some time to talk about and reminisce about that special day: "Remember that Christmas when...?"
It is important to consider the stage he or she is in when selecting a gift for a person with Alzheimer's. In the earliest stages, gifts need not be too different than what you might have given her (or him) before the diagnosis. Games and activities should reflect her interests and challenge her to exercise her brain as well as her body. As the condition progresses activities should be less challenging, but should still reflect her interests and keep her involved. Later stage gifts should concentrate on providing comfort while stimulating the senses. And remember, a gift that was appropriate when she was in the early stages of the disease will likely not hold her interest later.

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.
