peutic," Bradshaw said. "It's bridging the gap of generations. Many of the ladies were stay at home moms, and this allows them to care for someone else instead of being cared for."
Bradshaw said Claiborne at Adelaide provides the toys, which are disinfected before and after playtime, and the residents can play with and hold the infants, and feed them and change their diapers if they want to.
"Those smiles — oh my God. They are just so tickled to see those babies," Bradshaw said.
Bradshaw said local mothers and family members of residents bring their infants for the residents to play with, and anyone else is welcome to come. Children from newborns to two years old are invited.

The Claiborne at Adelaide is now offering Baby Play Therapy every Monday afternoon, a therapeutic experience for residents allowing them to interact with babies.
