Meditations, Scriptures and Prayers for Sufferers and Carers
Often dementia hides the person from us, but never from God. "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.
The large selection of Scripture verses, prayers, and devotional entries along with practical advice from an author with considerable experience working with dementia sufferers make this a one-stop worship resource for caregivers, sufferers, families, pastors, church groups, and medical professionals.
