Tiffany Village launches new “Cuddle Therapy” Program

February 20, 2017

Tiffany Village Retirement Living Residence is proud to announce the start of our new “Cuddle Therapy” sessions and the arrival of baby Tiffany and baby Kenny. This Therapy has also been termed as “Love and Comfort Therapy”, “Doll Therapy”, as well as “Alternative Human Connection” and has immense benefits for those living with Alzheimer’s or Dementia.

Boredom and loneliness are two of the main reasons for responsive behaviors in dementia usually due to unmet needs. Our new dolls will help in fulfilling those needs by giving the residents a chance to love and nurture to their full capacity. The main goal and emphasis of this program is on helping all of our residence to meet their individual needs for connection, meaning, purpose, attachment, nurturing and love.

Each resident interested in our program will have the chance to hold, nurture and love the doll. Tiffany and Kenny will give residents the opportunity to put responsibility and structure back into their lives and decrease any stress and agitation they may be experiencing.

The “Cuddle Therapy” sessions start will be a great addition to our assisted living residence and will overall improve the wellness of their lives here at Tiffany Village as well as Kenny’s Pond Retirement Living.

Our Testimonials

  • On behalf of the family I would like to express our heartfelt thanks for the care shown our mother, Gertrude Pendergast, since she arrived at Tiffany Village in April, 2012.
    Not only was Mom cared for with professionalism, she was loved. The fourth floor staff are to be commended for their patience, humour, tolerance, and understanding.

    Mom’s last week was a difficult one and the staff shared our pain as we watched over her. Mom received excellent care and we were cared for as well by the RNs, LPNs, PCAs, kitchen staff, concierge, and administration.

    Our last days with Mom were greatly eased by your compassion.

    Thank you.

    Joan Rumsey on behalf of the Pendergast Family
