Drawing on her years of experience as a long-term care chaplain, Kathy Berry provides practical information and tools to equip ministers and lay leaders to meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of those living with dementia. Chapters cover vital topics, including these: • Identifying those who may be showing signs of dementia and learning how to support them as they seek a diagnosis • Communicating with dementia patients as their language skills decline • Meeting the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of people with dementia—and the needs of their caregivers An invaluable resource to meet a growing need for congrega- tions around the country, When Words Fail equips readers to answer Christ’s call to minister to “the least of these.” Kathy Fogg Berry has served for seventeen years as a chaplain in long-term care and hospice settings. She has also served as a trainer for the Alzheimer’s Association and has taught gradu- ate courses in spirituality and aging. She regularly offers When Words Fail seminars and speaks on spirituality and dementia around the country.
