Activity Ideas

  • Undress doll and get a bowl of soapy water. Ask the person if they would like to wash Gloria's outfit - while doing so, chat about how they did their washing-did they use a bar of soap and so it by hand or machine. How did they feel when they got their first twin tub? Ask them to peg out Gloria's outfit and when dry, dress him again.
  • Provide a shallow box and a couple of tea towels. See if the person would like to make a bed for Gloria. Sing a few nursery rhymes - how many can you remember? (Rock-a-bye-Baby, Humpty Dumpty, Little Miss Muffet).
  • Provide a plastic bowl and spoon nearby - see if the person will try to 'feed' the doll. If so, talk about what type of food babies like? If the person wants some real food, put a little yoghurt in the bowl (this is easily wiped off and will not stain).

Doll therapy is a recognised therapy often used with dementia patients. Many people with dementia get enjoyment from holding and being with a doll as it can rekindle memories of when they had children of their own. It can also remind them of pleasant memories of affection and can lead to a renewed energy levels and a sense of purpose.

NB: Always introduce a doll gradually. Seat on a chair and allow the person to get used to it, picking it up and nursing it in their own time. If they show no interest, never try to push it on their lap. If the person becomes very attached, ensure others do not take it away or play with it as this can cause upset and jealousy.

Size: (l) 38cm. boxed.
