Welcome To The Homefield Grange Family Freda And Nigel

25th January 2024

In heartwarming news, the Homefield Grange Care Home family is celebrating the arrival of two precious additions – baby Freda and baby Nigel. These tiny newcomers, however, aren't your typical infants; they are part of a compassionate initiative aimed at bringing joy and purpose to residents with dementia.

Recognising the therapeutic benefits of caring for dolls or soft toys, the Homefield Grange Care Home has embraced "Doll Therapy." This innovative approach has proven to be a powerful tool in rekindling a sense of purpose among residents, fostering connections with the outside world, and significantly elevating their mood and activity levels.

Connections Created at Homefield Grange Care Home

For those who may be withdrawn or anxious, the simple act of holding or spending time with a doll becomes a source of comfort, enhancing overall wellbeing and communication skills. The pride and joy residents experience when introducing their "babies" to fellow residents, staff, or family members are heartening to witness.

The community has rallied around this initiative, generously donating clothes, pushchairs, bottles, and more, further enriching the residents' experience. The Homefield family continues to create an environment where compassion and creativity converge to make a meaningful impact on the lives of those in their care.
