Nana Lilly is a grandmother from Durham, who sadly suffers from dementia.
Maxine, Lilly’s granddaughter says dementia brings “darkness and loneliness to the sufferer” and it even resulted in her grandmother not wanting to get out of bed. Maxine thought of anything she could do to help her grandmother, and when she decided to get her a doll for Christmas, she soon realized it was one of the best things she ever did.
In the emotional video below, the family surprises Grandma Lilly with a Baby Annabelle doll for Christmas, and her reaction was the most beautiful thing we’ve ever seen. Grandma holds up the doll to kiss her, and then she cradles her in her arms.
Maxine says, “She now has a sense of purpose and sits singing, kissing and talking to the baby. We can interact with her better and her mood is transformed.”
Let’s just say it was the best $50 ever spent!
