Baby Doll Care Therapy with Dementia Patients: An Approach to Reduce Disruptive Behaviors

Baby Doll Care Therapy with Dementia Patients: An Approach to Reduce Disruptive Behaviors

The purpose of this project was to determine if offering baby doll care therapy, as a nonpharmacological intervention, to dementia patients living in a nursing home of a rural community would reduce the incidences of aberrant behaviors. Nonpharmacological interventions are now being considered to manage aberrant behaviors and decrease comorbid emotional disorders to help restore the quality of the dementia patient’s life.
