Dementia-friendly church service: Suffering (2021)

This week’s nondenominational worship service (updated for 2021) focuses on a universal reality: suffering. As usual, this church service is suitable for older adults with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

I guarantee, every elder you know has a solid sense that hardship is real and unavoidable. How does our faith in God help us endure it? I hope this service provides a measure of peace and hope when the dark clouds of suffering seem to obscure God’s hand.

Watch the 48-minute video church service on suffering here.

Peace be with you,

P.S. This week the Spiritual Eldercare YouTube channel passed 1,000 subscribers! Thanks to all of you who signed up; it really helps other people who may be searching for dementia-friendly resources.

    Thank You Elisa.
    I keep trying to conduct Sunday Service wearing the mask I am required to have on my face. But the folks have trouble hearing and understanding me. I have a few lip-readers.
    The Seniors love your complete services and I am able to play on the big flat screen using closed captioning. I add a couple of songs from YouTube at the beginning and the end and call it Special music.
    You are indeed blessing others.

      I’m so glad, David. I, too, am required to wear a face shield again — it really is hard (but not as hard as a mask). So I’m super glad that the videos are working for you. I’ve wondered about adding the captions! Good to know that you can turn them on yourself. Blessings.
