Watch This Grandma With Dementia’s Touching Reaction When Given A Baby Doll


Any one who has a loved one who is suffering from dementia knows what a cruel disease it is. Maxine Daniel’s grandmother Lilly is currently suffering from dementia, and Maxine says that sometimes it’s so bad that her grandma doesn’t even want to get out of bed.

Maxine decided to gift her grandmother with a baby doll for Christmas, but even she couldn’t have predicted the incredible results that the baby doll would have on Lilly.

‘My nana, before dementia, was the most loving and caring person you could ever meet. She absolutely loved children.

‘Her dementia was progressively getting worse to the point that she had forgotten most family members and her mannerisms became more child like so I thought maybe a doll would help to keep her mind occupied.

‘I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.’

Maxine posted a video of her grandma and the doll to her facebook page and the video has since gone viral with over 3 million views.

My Christmas gift to my lovely Nana Lilly (who sadly has dementia) was a Baby Annabelle doll. Her reaction is a joy to see and melts my heart ❤❤❤❤❤ with Corie
