Worshipping With Dementia - Louise Morse
Being 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. "We have accounts of people with dementia coming to faith on hearing the gospel," says Louise. "God never gives up, and neither should we. Visiting and supporting, ministering and caring is not about what it does for us, but what it means to the person 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.
What people say about this book:
"This book inspires on so many levels - to the carer for whom it is a resource, full of ideas and memory-joggers - but most of all to the dementia sufferer, because it might provide the key to unlock the soul of a Christian whose mind has forgotten the loving God."
- Pam Rhodes, author and TV presenter
"My mum read this book to Dad, who died of vascular dementia. She loved this book and read it from cover to cover over and over again as a daily devotional book. After she died, I now have the book and find it a great blessing. I have just ordered a copy for my brother who suffers from anxiety and depression."

"A group of retired people including myself, visit people in local care homes. This book is so good for using in care homes."
