Home caregivers who are tending to individuals with dementia know full well the many daily challenges faced by both themselves and the people for whom they care. Finding therapeutic approaches which benefit a person with dementia can be challenging, especially since some patients respond well to one form of therapy (say, for example, music) but might not to another (perhaps aromatherapy). One option that caregivers may want to consider is doll therapy.
