Reborn doll for dementia

My mum has vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s. We got her a reborn doll for her birthday, which even though she doesn’t talk much sense she called it Jessie. She kisses it and talks to it. One of the other care home residents has also taken to it and it’s sad to have to take it away from her. So I want to raise funds to buy more reborn dolls, with their eyes open, to see the residents talking and caring for them as their own babies, they do have normal dolls, but they don’t seem to take to these. My mums doll looks and weighs the same as a baby. If you can donate it would give these residents comfort and enjoyment . Dementia is so cruel and if you can get one smile it makes it all worth while. Thank you for reading my fundraising page
