Realistic Baby Dolls And Stuffed Animals Offer Comfort To The Elderly
I never would have thought to give my Mom a stuffed toy (aka teddy bear), but she received one as a gift and just loved the thing.
Stuffed Animals That Give Warmth Too
My Mom slept with her stuffed animal every night – partly because her stuffed teddy bear had a microwaveable pack that kept it warm for hours. It was also about 18″ tall so it was easy for her arthritic hands to handle her new ‘pet.’
The below microwaveable stuffed animals all have a very pleasant scent which is released upon heating. For example, some of these microwaveable stuffed animals are scented with lavender which is known to calm the senses – perfect for an agitated Alzheimer’s or dementia loved one.

Realist Baby Dolls Give Those With Dementia Or Alzheimer’s A Sense Of Purpose
I’ve recently read where dementia and Alzheimer patients may become more ‘centered’ with the help of a stuffed toy. Women specifically seem to like baby dolls. And, the more realistic the better, according to reviewers. Just make sure that you don’t buy one that cries, drinks or wets – no one needs the additional work!

Finally, I love the idea of giving a stuffed dog or cat to an animal-loving elderly friend. You might be surprised at how thrilled they are with their new companion.
