Calming Dementia
Therapy Dolls

For Care Homes

Three styles of doll to suit a variety of care needs

Whether you provide care for elderly residents, those living with dementia or with younger residents requiring specialist care, doll therapy can provide a simple, but effective activity. Staff report significant reductions in stress and anxiety, along with helping create a sense of purpose and meaning.
Therapeutic Dolls
Empathy dolls have become increasingly popular within care homes across the UK.

Many groups have encouraged the use of doll therapy, due to the clear benefits, especially on those residents living with dementia. Staff report calmer residents, reduced wandering, increased communication and even improved speech.

Never tried doll therapy before? Start off by sitting one on your knee and ask if any residents would like a hold. Often, residents will care for them tenderly. Dolls can bring back happy memories of parenthood and foster a sense of purpose and meaning.
