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

  • I have lived at Tiffany Village ever since it opened more than five years ago and I could not be happier. I find I can do all the things I did at home here. Most of my children live out of Province and I only have one daughter living here in the City. Patricia and I have done a lot of entertaining here, a family baby shower, birthday party and numerous family gatherings here in the beautiful dining room and get togethers with my lady friends since moving in. The staff and other residents here are just like family and there is a real community atmosphere at Tiffany Village. At Tiffany you can be very busy going to all the activities they have to offer or just hang out as you would in your own home – the choice is up to you. I call Tiffany Village my home now and my family away know that I am content and safe at Tiffany.
