The new version of Morgan James, Finding Refuge Amid Alzheimer’s Disease: A Spiritual Guide for Families Experiencing Dementia, by Dr. Elizabeth Shulman, offers spiritual support to those caring for someone with dementia.
There are over 16 million people caring for someone with dementia. Caregivers are often under stress and may have difficulty making sense of their role as a caregiver. This book discusses common challenges caregivers face using the scriptures and personal stories. Done in a Bible study format with separate sections for spouses, adult children caring for a parent, and those who want to support a caregiver but don’t know how, Finding a Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer’s disease equips churches, retirement homes and support groups with the tools to find hope and thrive as caregivers.
Caring for people with dementia requires patience, confidence, and a willingness to meet their needs. Engaging with relevant scriptures and listening to the personal stories of caregivers will empower participants in their caregiving journey, while providing respite and a sense of refuge from their caregiving challenges.
