Emily is soft bodied, has a washable fleecy outfit plus eyes that close. She is ideal for doll therapy for use with people with dementia to nurture.

We have taken our time in finding just the right doll for anyone with dementia and we think Emily is just about perfect. She is the right size to cuddle, has a lovely soft body and her eyes close. Her hat is also attached to her fleecy outfit to prevent it getting lost.

Doll therapy is now a very effective part of dementia care and dementia care specialists fully endorse the use of dolls to help create a sense of wellbeing for people with dementia who often have a very real need to comfort and nurture.

Size: (h) 46cm. Clothes can be removed and washed. Please note: dummy not included.

Have a look at this YouTube clip to see how much pleasure this older person with dementia is getting from her doll
