Cognitive, social and spiritual stimulation are highly effective for older people, and are even said to help prevent dementia. These sessions have proved very successful in trials in a range of settings. They are particularly popular in churches.
Brain And Soul Boosting is ideal material for use with a small group of people amongst whom you want to encourage conversation and fellowship. The workbook includes instructions on how to run a session and session outlines that take a theme around which conversation can develop.
A biblical underpinning for each session also means that they can be used as a devotional aid for the group and some of the ideas will be helpful for a more interactive form of worship service.
"We would thoroughly recommend BSBS and encourage other churches to set up a group and be a blessing- and be blessed!"
"I use the ideas in this workbook to encourage participation in some of the services that I lead - no longer is it just me talking to the residents in the home."
