This is a wonderful success story from a customer who tried Doll Therapy with her mother.
I had something else to share. If people contact you and are hesitant about getting a doll, tell them my success story.
My mum has been controlling and had anger issues as long as I’ve known her! She is fast to dismiss things. She’s negative. I was nervous about introducing the doll, despite doing research and having others tell me it works. She was a nurse and is hard to trick!!
The day I took it over, I was really nervous. I turned her around to face them as I walked through the back door. Both parents lit up with delight. They thought it was a real baby. Then they realised it wasn’t. My mum asked to hold her. She was talking to her straight away. My dad was holding back. But then he held her too. Both have dementia. Mum way worse.
Now, a few months later, that doll is the centre of her life. She sits on the couch and mum walks up to her, touches her tummy and speaks to her. She holds her hand. She mostly adores her eyes. And her smile. The baby is always happy.
Her name is Bella but she doesn’t call her that. But she often asks me, have you seen this? Who did this she asks? Who got this doll? I did mum. I got you this. Oh, you are so wonderful, it’s the best thing, I talk to her all the time. She listens to me. Then she talks to her. Then I talk to her. I tell her how gorgeous she is. I have held her. But I don’t now. I know how special she is to my mum. I would always ask her first.
At first I told mum the doll was for my 2 year old niece to play with when she visits. Now she knows it’s her doll. She doesn’t really want the 2 year old to touch her and get her dirty. She asks me where I got it. I lied and said a shop. I walked by and saw it. I thought that sounded nicer.
I am thrilled beyond words that this worked. Mum will be going into care soon and I hope that this doll eases the painful & heartbreaking transition.
I strongly believe in telling people when they have had a positive impact in my life. You, Jenny Hamilton, have had an enormously positive impact. I thank you wholeheartedly.
I will keep you updated as to the transition. I am fully expecting it to be beyond awful. But it has to be done. I hope and pray that Baby Bella can be a comfort to my mum. Dementia is a shocking disease.
Anyway, just wanted to offer the full story. The world needs more people like you doing great work for others.
With much gratitude and respect,
Music has a profound and beneficial effect on the mental performance of residents well into advanced stages of Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and Parkinson’s Disease.
Music helps recall a lifetime of unique memories and experiences for each individual. The ability to connect a memory to a song or sound enhances cognitive ability at any stage of the disease.
Shop Audio Art For Memory Care that helps Alzheimer's patients to interact and recall. Interaction with art pieces that encourages recollection, touching and awareness of surroundings. Audio pieces coordinate sounds with pictures to encourage long term memory stimulus. “The original concept came from memory care professionals .
Can Exercise Help Dementia?
Exercise and other types of physical activity have many benefits. Studies show that they are good for our hearts, waistlines, and ability to carry out everyday activities. Epidemiological studies and some intervention studies suggest that physical exercise may also play a role in reducing risk for Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline.
Exercise may help delay or slow cognitive decline in older adults.
MIND diet rich in vegetables, berries, whole grains, nuts May Reduce Alzheimer's Disease
By Nancy Di Fiore
Newly published research suggests that a specific diet called the MIND diet may reduce the incidence of brain disease that increases a person’s risk in developing Alzheimer’s disease.
The recent study shows that the MIND diet lowered the risk of Alzheimer's by as much as 53 percent in participants who adhered to the diet rigorously, and by about 35 percent in those who followed it moderately well according to a paper published online on March 19 in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.
What Aged Care Could Look Like In The Future
De Hogeweyk, operated by nursing home Hogewey, is a gated model village in Weesp, Netherlands. It has been designed specifically as a pioneering care facility for elderly people with dementia. The benefit of using all-day reminiscence therapy at Hogewey, compared to traditional nursing homes, is that the residents with dementia are more active and require less medication. The setting has been compared to that depicted in the film The Truman Show. Carers, doctors and nurses work around the clock to provide the 152 residents the necessary 24-hour care.
The doctors, nurses and carers aim to make the experience as real as possible to the residents. Residents shop at the supermarket and assist with preparing and cooking as they would at home. The carers wear normal daytime clothing rather than clinical clothing and fit into a role that the dementia sufferers are likely to be comfortable with; in the working class households the carers are seen to be neighbours or carers, while in the aristocratic/upper class setting, the nurses act akin to servants. The living styles have different types of music playing, significantly varied interior design, food and methods of table setting. Residents in each house have their own large bedroom and meet with other residents to share the living room, kitchen and dining room. There are no locks on the doors, and residents are free to walk or cycle around the village, including choosing to visit the supermarket or cafe.
