They Hand Sick Grandma A Baby, Her Next Move Has Onlookers Choking Back Tears

The need to provide and receive affection is something that we all share. Everyone dreads the thought of being lonely and not needed, but in the case of patients with Alzheimer and Dementia, that feeling is much more poignant.
For the people who suffer from this condition, using a Teddy bear or a baby doll has delivered positive results when it comes to lowering their stress level and anxiety. Doll therapy can be used to put responsibility, caring and structure back into the lives of those suffering from mental health issues.
In the video below, we can see caregivers at a center that cares for patients with evolved stages of Alzheimer and dementia introducing dolls to several patients. Their reactions as the caregivers carefully place the realistic dolls in their arms are one of the saddest and most heartwarming things I’ve seen in a while.
You can see the patients’ faces light up when they receive what they think is a real baby. The way they handle the dolls with such gentleness and care is just beautiful to watch. This is something that everybody should see, so please take a moment to share these powerful images with others.
