Description

If you are new to Empathy Dolls then you might like to also get this book: Doll Therapy in Dementia Care by Gary Mitchell or read our article on the topic.

Mia, our Joyk Empathy Doll makes a great companion for an older loved one – especially for anyone with a dementia living in a care home or hospital.

Doll therapy for use with dementia patients is a recognised therapy used extensively in the care sector and can help alleviate stress and anxiety as well as helping to relieve boredom.

Designed to encourage caring and nurturing instincts, she comes with a weighted bottom to feel just like a small child when being carried.

Made from soft-filled fabric and with removable clothes, her appealing eyes and cute facial expression listens to everything you say.

Why not add another companion from our range – choose from Nelly, SaraElias or Marco?

 

Activity Ideas
  • Pop a beating Empathy Heart inside your doll’s outfit so that the doll has a realistic feel – especially for anyone suffering from anxiety.
  • Place a shallow cardboard box nearby with a couple of tea towels inside for the doll user to make into a little bed. Maybe sing the beginning of some nursery rhymes and encourage the person to sing along too.
  • Pop a few drops of sensory oil onto a hanky or an Empathy Doll Scent Bag and tuck into a doll’s pocket or outfit to create a scent. Ask if the person can recognise the scent? Discuss where you might find something with that smell. Can use lavender if the person finds it difficult to sleep.
  • Leave a soft hairbrush nearby – the act of brushing hair can be soothing for an older person and will keep hands busy too.
