A few comments I’ve received …
I am a volunteer Engagement Specialist at Holy Cross Village. We have a lot of residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia. While we have a Catholic heritage I was considering the spiritual care of our non-Catholic residents. In addition to my role here at Holy Cross I am a Vineyard pastor as well. So I was looking for a way to lead a non-Catholic service for residents with memory concerns. I was shocked and very pleased with all the resources found on your site! I am certain it will be very helpful moving forward in provided the spiritual care of some of our residents.
I love ALL of your Bible Studies! I lead a Bible Discussion at an Assisted Living Facility every Wednesday and have used a lot of your resources for that. I use them every week! Thank you so much for putting them together! I’d be interested in any new Bible study resources that you put together. The residents really love them and they are easy to lead and follow. I greatly appreciate you and am so happy I was able to find this resource. Blessings on you and all you do.
I have consulted (and used) your online resources for my weekly work with seniors at our city-owned Long Term Care Facility. I love using the excellent bible studies, which you’ve made both accessible and adaptable. Thank you so much for your generous ministry; it has enhanced my Chaplaincy immensely! Blessings be with you.
I used one of your resources this week for Bible Study at a local nursing home. The resource you provided was wonderful! We had good engagement by the group. I am grateful to you for providing these resources. They made ministering to this group easy and fun.
Recently I ran across your website and have found it to be extremely helpful in my ministry to dementia residents at Newton Village of Newton, Iowa, a ministry of Cassia (a Christian health care organization). I have recommended your wonderful website to other chaplains and to our director of spiritual care. Thank you for what your are doing. God bless.
Thank you for such great resources. I am a member of a group that goes to an Alzheimer’s memory care center every Friday to provide a Catholic prayer and communion service. Our parish is in Wind Lake, WI. We just found your website and will be using it to enhance what we are doing. Sending wishes for many blessings for you.
I came across this site last week and am SO EXCITED! We did the 1st Epistle study this morning, and the format was so user friendly, we elicited answers from residents who rarely talk, due to their dementia. It is sophisticated enough to be meaningful, but using common language to be accessible. It was wonderful. Thank you! (140 bed care centre in Canada)
Since we are still in the beginning phases of offering dementia services we only offer them once a month. Have had a great response. We do offer life music and songs from your selection. Thank you ever so much for all the work you have put into this to make it flow easily for the rest of us.
Thank you for this site! I am a hospice chaplain. I currently lead three Bible studies at facilities that we service. I also have a pretty full schedule of people to see. That often means my prep time for my studies is lacking. I only briefly went over some of the studies that you offer but the look like a valuable resource. I will share with my fellow chaplains and definitely support you ministry. Thank you again and God bless.
Your website has been an answer to prayer for me. I have been asked to do a Bible Study for dementia-challenged patients at a Retirement Home. I was at a loss of how to even begin. I have led Bible Studies for years, but not for this group. Your Bible Study guidelines, samples and advice have really helped me. It has showed me how to slow down and hit the high points.
Thank you for all you do. God Bless You!
“Thank you also for your devotion and dedication to bring God’s word and love to those at MorningStar. Mom looked forward to Bible Study and the Chapel services. She loved going to Church and singing.”
“I’m just starting to use some of your Bible studies, but the two I’ve used so far have really gone well. I’ve had more sharing from residents, and our time has been more substantive than with some other studies I’ve used. I so appreciate the resources too, as it is a huge help to not have to develop something from scratch each Bible study when my time feels so limited.”
