This book puts dementia into a Christian context, insisting that loss of memory or reason does not mean a person is worthless.Dementia is in the headlines on a daily basis. Much information is available but it is all factual with no spiritual content. Yet for Christians, dementia can raise questions unlike any other condition. Why does a godly old man begin to use language that has always been anathema to him? Why does a loving mother become stubborn, and suspicious? Where is God in all of this?This book offers information and reassurance gleaned from the extensive experience of Pilgrim Homes, a network of nine Christian care homes and a foundation going back to 1807.
A journalist with a diploma in international marketing, Louise Morse is currently Publicity Manager for Pilgrim Homes. Rev. Roger Hitchings was previously Director of Age Concern for Birmingham and is now a pastor in the Midlands.
