She nurses it and talks to it as if it was real and has the most beautiful happy face whilst doing this. She snuggles up with the baby doll whenever she is at rest. It is lovely to see. Paul Eldridge As a dementia carer I’m sure they would be a great help to many but not everyone. It depends on the varied stage of dementia. I’d love one to see what reaction I did get. My local care home has a pat a dog scheme that works very well. Anything that helps is better than nothing.

Maggie Leacock My mum would tell me to catch myself on if I gave her one of these but some people find them company and comforting. Not sure if it depends on dementia or the person.

I hope the cat version hurried up soon as there are a lot of people who prefer them to the dog (and obviously vice versa) and I can see this bringing comfort. Some dementia patients have dolls to care for and it works wonders (my lovely friend’s Nan did) and I’m sure it brings comfort to other family members too. And also no poop or wee, or even feeding the animals. Just wonderful.
