Comfort Companion Alzheimer’s Support Dolls Expand Distribution

Coinciding with Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, Specially-designed
Ragdolls Provide Memory Stimulation for Alzheimer’s and Dementia

ENNICE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#alz–Comfort Companions, one-of-a-kind safe and soothing memory-care
ragdolls, is now offering nationwide distribution, along with special
pricing in alignment with Alzheimer’s Awareness month. The brain child
of Janet Thompkins, NC-based senior advocate, Comfort Companions provide
Alzheimer’s and dementia patients and their caregivers with a safe and
comforting “huggable” fabric doll, designed to stimulate memory skills
and encourage mindful activities.

Unlike many dolls commonly used for memory loss therapy, Comfort
Companions are made out of easy-to-hug soft fabric. Purposefully
designed to not resemble typical baby dolls, they’re bright, cheerful,
and packed with stimulating features that encourage memory, provide
comfort and promote activity.

According to Ms. Thompkins, “During my years of working as a speech
therapist with memory-loss patients, I saw the need for a soothing,
huggable doll that also provided much needed care and comfort – both for
patients and caregivers. It’s been my passion to create something as
simple, yet powerful, as Comfort Companions, and see firsthand the
benefits they bring to patients and family members.”

The dolls, and a new huggable beagle, include a heart-shaped name tag to
encourage memory. Bows, buttons and flowers help keep busy hands
occupied. A front pocket provides a safe place for family photos and
keepsakes, while a mini book is attached to promote social interaction.
The ragdolls are scented with lavender, proven to relax and soothe. In
recognition of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, the dolls are on sale for
$29.95, a 25% savings, with a portion of proceeds benefiting Alzheimer’s

Comfort Companions dolls, along with recently-launched, Bo the Beagle,
are often purchased as individual gifts or to support memory-care
