Happy Advent! Worship services for elders with dementia

Just under the wire: I finally got a chance to upload the Advent season worship services. I’m so excited about these! I love the chance to celebrate this beautiful season of hope, love, joy, and peace with elders. And we always love singing the classic Christmas hymns.

Speaking of hymns: I also created a special Christmas Hymnal to use with these services. All you have to do is download the Christmas songs (for free) to your computer (and then, if you like, your iPhone or Android), play them through a decent speaker, and you’ll be off and running.

I suggest using page protectors before putting the pages into notebooks. Also, when assembling, make sure page 1 is a right-hand page so that page numbers appear in the outside corner of each page.

Bible discussions, too

Last year I also created four Bible studies for the Advent season. Each covers one of the ancient “hymns” heralding the birth of Jesus: Mary’s Magnificat, Zechariah’s Blessing, the Angels’ Gloria, and the Song of Simeon. I hope these, too, are useful to you if you care for a family member or group of elders with dementia.

Blessings and peace to you during this holiday season!
