…..holding onto precious memories

Our goal is to enrich the lives of Alzheimer’s and Dementia residents at Memory Care facilities. We will provide a life like doll (baby) or a stuffed dog (puppy) to patients in hopes to rekindle something inside their hearts and memories.

Our beautiful mother, Lorraine, was in the early stage of Alzheimer’s when she passed away in 2014. Our loving father, Chuck, passed away in February, 2018. They both loved children and animals. Our dad would stop each family with a child or baby in every store and doctor office we visited. Our mom loved stuffed animals and had a collection of furry critters in their home.

My dad was a patient at two rehab facilities while recovering after a stroke. I often wondered how I could make a difference in the lives of other patients in these facilities; how I could visit with them in a loving and trusting way. I came across an online site where women in another state were bringing “babies” and “puppies” to residents in Memory Care facilities. The joys and tears the ladies experienced from these beautiful residents was amazing. Something touched my heart and I knew this was how I would honor my parents while making a difference in the lives of Alzheimer’s and Dementia residents.

We began purchasing babies and puppies along with cuddly sleepers, hats, and diapers to put on the babies. We also wrapped the babies in soft blankets, tied with satin ribbons to give to the residents as a gift. We purchased bandanas for the puppies and have started visiting Memory Care facilities in our area. The guys love the puppies and the ladies love the babies although a few ladies have requested a puppy or kitty which we gladly provide.

Recently, we visited with a WWII Veteran named George. We watched him hug and kiss his newly named “puppy”, Charlie, while sharing his amazing story of training over 400 dogs in the Army. A very sweet 101 years young, Bernice, with a smile that melted everyone’s heart, cradled lovingly a “baby” while tears flowed gently down her precious face.

We can’t express enough how much our lives have been touched forever by seeing the love these “babies” and “puppies” are bringing to Memory Care residents and listening to their amazing stories. The calming affect these gifts have on the residents is humbling knowing the difference they make in their lives.

This website was created for those of you who wanted to be able to reach out to us. We also have a Facebook page where we will keep everyone updated as we visit more places. We truly enjoy sharing love and rekindling something inside these beautiful people! God bless them and their precious caregivers.
