Giving Back To Nursing Home Patients On Mother’s Day

Two individuals with loved ones formerly in nursing homes decided to continue giving back after their loved ones passed. They noticed the difference dolls made for Alzheimer’s patients and started a baby doll drive to provide dolls for patients at a nursing home in memory of their loved ones with Alzheimer’s.

“So many times we’ve seen with the Alzheimer’s patients that the last 30 years, maybe 40 years, that’s what’s gone,” said one of the loved ones. “But those memories of when they were young and when they were young mothers themselves, that’s what is engrained.”

“We just want to bring some joy and love in a world that’s so negative and so bitter,” said another participant. “We just want to do something good because Alzheimer’s (is) such a devastating disease.” For more, read the story.
