Doll therapy is widely recognised an effective therapy for use with dementia patients. Give your care home residents the opportunity to draw upon their natural caring and nurturing instincts. Holding and looking after the doll can rekindle happy memories and give them a sense of purpose.
The empathy dolls are often a great talking point to support care staff interaction, and washing and changing the dolls’ clothes can be an engaging activity too. Wippet’s trusted UK supplier, Activities to Share, also offers a wonderful range of companion pets.
Explore the pet dogs with sensory accessories, as well as those which can be used as hand puppets and hand warmers, when the pouch is filled with granules, which can be warmed in the microwave. An additional spare pouch allows you to insert items to play guessing games or to be filled with different scents. The action of stroking and smoothing a companion pet can be very calming, especially with the Precious Petzz range with pets that ‘breathe’. They offer a very realistic pet ownership experience.
