Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's : A Spiritual Guide for Families Facing Dementia
by Elizabeth Shulman




Overview -
There are currently over 16 million people in the United States providing care to a person with dementia. While caregiving can be very rewarding, many caregivers also experience a significant amount of stress and struggle to find meaning in their role as a caregiver.

Unlike typical support groups, Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's offers a spiritual component. Also, unlike typical Bible studies, it directly addresses common challenges for caregivers using both scripture and personal narratives. The entire curriculum is two-fold in its ministry objectives. One purpose of the curriculum is to educate and train pastors and church members to more effectively and compassionately minister to those in their congregation who are caring for a family member with dementia. The other purpose is to create a safe place for family members to gather and share their experiences in a spiritually based environment. Because each section is self-contained, Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's is not just for churches; it can also be divided and tailored for individual groups such as senior centers, assisted living facilities, or support groups looking to integrate a spiritual component.
