Guidelines for Doll Therapy

This is the perfect doll for someone with dementia. The adorable, life-like doll with it's sweet face is sure to please anyone.

It is important that a doll not be given directly to the person with Alzheimer's disease. Rather it should be left somewhere, on a table or sitting in a chair, for example, somewhere that 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 or result in the doll being rejected.

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.
