Product Description

Louise Morse and Roger Hitchings put dementia into a Christian context with this guide, reassuringreaders that loss of memory or reason does not make a person worthless. Dementia is in the headlineson a daily basis, and plenty of information is readily available, but none of it deals with the spiritual implications.For Christians, dementia can raise more unsettling questions than any other condition.Why would a godly old man start using foul language?How can a loving mother become so stubborn and suspicious?Where is God in these people's lives?Most strikingly, this book clearly asserts-based on two centuries of observation-that those sufferingdementia are still spiritually active and responsive. Those who seem otherwise inert will repeat every wordof the Lord's Prayer or join in the singing of a hymn. The implications of this in respect to the treatment ofdementia patients are far-reaching.This book offers information and reassurance gleaned from the work of Pilgrim Homes, a network ofChristian care homes for the elderly that has been helping believers cope with the aging process since 1807.

Publisher's Description

Dementia is in the headlines on a daily basis, and plenty of information is readily available, but none of it deals with the spiritual implications, a gap this book ably fills. This tender book explains what dementia is and offers practical advice to families, caretakers, and churches.
