Dementia Companion Project

Dementia Companion Project

If you are a carer for somebody living at home with Dementia or Alzheimer's, we have Empathy Dolls, Companion Cats and Fiddle Muff Comforters, all available for loan for up to 4 days at a time in Merthyr Tydfil (Monday to Thursday).

All of the companion items we have available are known to:

· provide companionship and caring

· increase meaningful interactions between family and others

· helps stimulate conversation and speech

· calm anxiety and aid focus

· increase quality of life for anyone who is socially isolated

The Empathy Dolls make a perfect companion for older people living with a dementia.

Their soft, fabric bodies are great to cuddle and sit on a lap or lie down and they can also be dressed and undressed (we’ll send a change of clothes).

Our companion Cats love getting attention, leave them for a few minutes and they will go to sleep, pat them on the back to wake them back up!

They are soothing and comforting, and makes a unique companion for anyone, and will purr and meow, and move to your touch


Please get in touch with Nathan at Twyn Community Hub on 01685 709430 for further information about this scheme


We take the spread of Covid-19 very seriously, with this in mind all items will be cleaned and isolated before leaving the Hub, and when being returned from their temporary homes (please call us for further information)
