Dementia: Frank & Linda’s Story  (Louise Morse)

Based on a true story, Frank and Linda’s story powerfully depicts a new approach to care-giving, focusing on three important aspects of dementia care – living, helping, and spiritual support.

Written with a clear Christian perspective, this book provides a new understanding of dementia, as well as suggesting new approaches. Best of all, it gives us new hope. Helpfully, it also offers practical, day to day advice from a hands-on perspective, using a narrative structure. It follows the story of an older couple, Linda and Frank. Frank develops dementia. The story covers the first, early signs and the development of the disease; the couple’s struggle to manage and find help, the wife’s failing health and the search for a suitable care home, and life after Frank goes to live in the home.

Dr Jennifer Bute (a former GP living with dementia) says of this book: “This is the best book to read about dementia.”

 

 

Worshipping With Dementia  (Louise Morse)

For people with dementia, simplicity is paramount. This book provides simple daily devotions for use by caregivers, dementia sufferers, families, church groups, and medical professionals.

Adrift in a world without memory, is a challenging reality for many in our community. Dementia hides the person from us, but never from God. Here is a unique large format resource that includes many practical suggestions for visiting and offering spiritual support to those with dementia.

This practical book explains why Christians are called to care spiritually for people who may not be able to show their response. It assures us that once we commit our lives to Christ, His Holy Spirit comes to live in us, and He has promised never to leave us. This is true hope for weary caregivers and good news for sufferers.

 

 

 

Dementia: Pathways to Hope  (Louise Morse)

Packed with helpful examples, practical advice and accessible medical information, this book reveals hope behind the thickets of misunderstanding and misinformation around dementia. Author Louise Morse offers practical help and sound spiritual and psychological insights to carers of those living with dementia.

From hundreds of interviews and hands-on experience Louise offers counsel on what dementia is, and is not; how to make your home a safe place; how to understand and handle challenging behaviour; slowing the onset of dementia; how churches can help; when specialist care is needed; and illuminating stories of what has helped others.

This is a practical and well researched book on what is fast becoming one of the most challenging areas in society today.

 

 

 

Could it be Dementia?  (Louise Morse & Roger Hitchings)

This book insists that losing your mind doesn’t mean losing your soul. It offers information and reassurance by giving practical and spiritual insights, putting dementia firmly into a Christian context.

The book is written with great sensitivity. It can help you to understand what dementia sufferers are experiencing, and how to interact with them. Louise Morse presents the information truthfully and gently, and helpfully explains all the various kinds of dementia.

There is great hope in the God of our Salvation and we look forward to having a new body, where sin, pain and suffering has no part. This book could be a wonderful resource to those with family or friends that seem to suffer in this way.
