Empathy doll

This afternoon Vicky got out “Baby Sienna” and went around asking who would like to hold the baby. Most residents had a cuddle and chat about the baby. Some were aware that it is just a doll and spoke about how lifelike it is, especially with the weight of it. Some thought it was real and were very gentle with her and asked her name and birth weight etc. We had lots of chats and reminiscing about our own experiences, Penny particularly enjoyed this and enjoyed chatting with Vicky about her own children’s names and age gaps etc
