The Healing Gift of Dolls

“Doll therapy involves offering dolls to people living with dementia with the aim of improving their comfort, engagement and quality of life. Most evidence in support of doll therapy is anecdotal, though there is a growing research base. A study completed in 2007 found it was an effective approach in caring for older people with dementia. And Australian research in 2019 cited by the Social Care Institute for Excellence concluded that doll therapy can provide some residents with enjoyment and purposeful engagement.” – Sarah Johnson
