I'm interested in therapy dolls for dementia. I have several realistic dolls here in the house which were gifts from my daughter's late grandmother — she was always a little freaked by them — and would love to donate them somewhere. How and where can I find a facility which might be able to use them? Thanks.

Are they good for cuddling? Is it that kind of realistic doll? If they are soft and also feel real, I would do a Google search of communities around you. Call the receptionist and ask if they have a dementia unit, then see if you can talk to the director of that unit. I would be happy to get a call like that!
