  • When Words Fail


    More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease today-a number expected to triple in the next 30 years. Many more experience other forms of dementia. For faith communities, this represents a crucial opportunity for ministry and practical care-one that many aren’t adequately prepared for.

    Amidst mental and physical decline, those suffering from dementia diseases still deeply need human connection and spiritual nourishment. Sadly, as memories fade and the ability to communicate weakens, those with dementia may find themselves neglected or forgotten by the larger community. Despite good intentions, oftentimes when words begin to fail for people with dementia, they also fail for those around them, who don’t know what to say or what to do.

    When Words Fail will equip those in ministry to reach out to people living with dementia and offer person-centered spiritual care-ministering to the mind, body, and soul. This book is rich with practical examples and tools designed to meet these emotional, physical, and spiritual needs, and devotes particular attention to ways of communicating even after words have failed. Taken together, these tools give pastoral workers a better understanding of how to visit and support not only people living with dementia but their caregivers, too. Continue Reading When Words Fail

  • Reluctant Caregiver : Navigating The Turmoil Of The Sandwich Generation


    Some say courage is fear that has said its prayers.

    Bobbi may be married with two grown children, but the child inside still fears and resents the attacks and tirades of her ninety-year-old mother, now afflicted with dementia. While still a teenager, Bobbi was disowned by her mother. How can she now take on the role of caregiver?

    Bobbi seeks escape from the task, but gradually realizes that Jesus has a greater goal in mind than teaching her to be a caregiver. Crisis after crisis forces Bobbi to turn to Jesus for help, all the while testing to see if his promises can be taken literally. Is he in charge? Will he work things out? Is his plan perfect?

    Nancy’s erratic behaviour and moods punctuate the ensuing year. Stripped of any illusion that she can cope on her own, Bobbi finds her faith rewarded in unpredictable ways. Her journey of anxiety and failure also comes with insights and small but important victories. She tells the story candidly, often humorously, as she comes to a deeper understanding of dementia, her mother, and most of all, Jesus.

    Read and weep. Laugh and pray. Gain courage and perspective of your own! Continue Reading Reluctant Caregiver : Navigating The Turmoil Of The Sandwich Generation

  • Struggles Of Caregiving


    Caregiving is a demanding task that takes a huge toll on the person providing care – mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Nell Noonan, speaking from her own experience as caregiver for her husband, describes caregiving as a cataclysmic spiritual experience.

    Noonan says it’s critical for caregivers to practice self-care so they can cope with their situation. Paying attention to their spiritual health is especially important.

    The 28-Days format (4 weeks of brief daily readings that include scripture and prayer) provides an accessible way for caregivers, typically stressed and pressed for time, to devote a few minutes to their spiritual health.

    Noonan’s honesty and faith are hallmarks of her writing. Speaking from her own experience and that of others, she does not avoid difficult situations and the feelings that accompany them. She witnesses to the strength she finds as she continually turns to God, even in her darkest moments.

    Caregivers will appreciate these devotions that are both forthright and uplifting. Continue Reading Struggles Of Caregiving
