Publisher's Description

Inspired by his mother who was the sole care partner for his grandfather with dementia, Matthew Estrade found his calling. He began facilitating care partner support groups, writing a blog, educating the public and care teams, producing The Peace with Dementia Podcast and completed graduate school in Gerontology. Matthew brings you his most current project that draws upon the beauty and strength of the Holy Rosary, where knowledge, love, and faith intersect.Dementia is a broad term used to describe a group of chronic symptoms that may include memory impairment disrupting everyday life, diminished judgment, inability to plan, challenges with words and communicating, disorientation of time and place, and other symptoms. Dementia can be caused by Alzheimer's disease, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, vascular dementia, frontotemporal degeneration, or other irreversible diseases. In The Peace with Dementia Rosary, Matthew walks along your journey of dementia offering Education, Intentions, and Community.Education presented through each of the 20 Mysteries of the Holy Rosary, features important lessons to improve the quality of life for persons living with dementia and their care partners. Intentions found in the book will focus your prayers on specific moments and challenges during the journey of dementia. The companion website has a Dementia Prayer Wall, where visitors can post prayer requests, as well as pray for others' requests. An "I prayed for you" button alerts the person that someone prayed for them.Community is created when we pray for each other and when we create in-person and online support groups. Imagine having a Peace with Dementia Rosary group at your church.ImprimaturMost Reverend Gregory M. AymondArchbishop of New OrleansJune 6, 2019
