BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A recently new therapy for Alzheimer and Dementia patients is helping those right here in Kern County.
Kimberly McAnally, the program manager of the Alzheimer's Disease Association of Kern County, said they started the babydoll therapy two months ago. It's a tool they use to help their clients relieve anxiety and help make a connection.
For many struggling with Alzheimers and dementia, they are bringing back priceless memories.
For many struggling with Alzheimers and dementia who need 24/7 care, McAnally said it makes them feel good to be able to help care for someone else.
To help the Alzheimer's Disease Association of Kern County is trying to raise funds for more therapy babydolls, that cost around $300 because they are designed to look like real infants.
To help support the organization and all the therapy treatments they are hosting a fundraiser called "The Heart Never Forgets" on October 25, 2018. The event will be held at the Bakersfield County Club with VIP from 5 to 6 p.m. And general admission at 6 p.m.
