WHAT DOES THE CUSTOMERS SAYS ABOUT BETTER BENTS
We got Bent in November 2018, and we started using him the same day for our residents.
Bent is a sloth, and because it has no mouth, we see it as a great advantage, as our residents do not feel the same urge to feed him, which we sometimes experience with our dementia dolls.
Bent is perceived as friendly in our house, we suppose the big eyes do this.
Bent is also comfortable to wear on the lap, because its weight gives the feeling that you are holding a baby or a small child on the arm. The arms are long enough to lay around the neck and provide a hug, making it easier for some residents to have it around and feel comfort.
We have used Bent in bedtime for a resident who had trouble focusing and finding peace for the night.
Here it has quickly been discovered that Bent had a calming effect on this occupant and the resident could do without psychopharmacology for the night.
