We had little Freddie and Amelia come to visit today πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ

Freddie and Amelia are reborn babies, handcrafted by Heather who runs a business, creating reborns from scratch.

Reborn babies are lifelike and have the same weight, build and texture to a newborn baby. These dolls have shown to be an incredible way of decreasing stress and agitation in individuals who are living with dementia, and can put care and structure back into their lives. And who can say no to a cuddle when they are so cute?!

Heather, at Lullaby Nursery, kindly donated Amelia for us, and has donated lots of other reborn babies to care homes and hospitals in Dorset πŸ’“πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸΌ

This week, the warm weather has meant that we have been able to enjoy the garden most days! πŸŒžπŸŒ³β›±

Here is one of our ladies writing a diary entry about what she has been up to, and some of her favourite sayings...who remembers this one?

β€˜One, two, three, mother caught a flea, she put it in a teapot and make a cup of tea. The flea jumped out, mother gave a shout, and in came Daddy with his shirt hanging out’ πŸ•·β˜•οΈ

This is Fiji. He got a bit lost, wandering around West Moors, so he came to say hello to our lovely ladies while he waited for his owner came to collect him! πŸ•πŸš˜πŸ‘±πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ‘

Fiji moved here after being rescued from Portugal, and he is the most lovely, gentle dog, who gave our residents a wonderful afternoon full of waggy tails and puppy dog eyes! 🌍✈️🐾

Thank you for your visit Fiji, and we are glad you are home safely! ❀️
