I’ve been working on an article about why spiritual care is so helpful for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia … and it’s finally finished!
There are two versions: the first is 2 pages back-to-back, so it’s easy to print as a handout. The second is 4 pages … because I had more to say 🙂
Just click on either image to download the document.
I’m indebted to Dave K., a pastoral counselor/chaplain at a memory care residence in Virginia Beach. He sent me a very nice email a couple of weeks ago, which really helped me to focus the title and format:
“I was wondering of you know of an article … to help family members understand the importance of spiritual care for those who have dementia but in an outline form or easy to understand for ‘laymen.’ I have some spouses who are themselves elderly and I wanted a simplified message I could give family members to understand the value of spiritual care with their family members. It needs to be brief … and easy to understand. Something like…’Five ways those with dementia can benefit from spiritual care’ etc.”
I’ve already sent Dave these PDFs, and I hope you find them useful too. If you have more ideas and have seen other benefits, please comment below.
