Dementia-Friendly Worship : A Multifaith Handbook for Chaplains, Clergy, and Faith Communities Paperback / softback
Edited by Virginia Biggar, Lynda Everman, Steven M. Rabbi Glazer
Religious faith can often be a source of reassurance for individuals and families facing dementia, yet many faith leaders lack the know-how to adapt their ministries to help this group to draw comfort from their faith.
Compiled by around 50 different authors, this collection represents diverse faith traditions, including Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Native American, and how each tradition can offer support to people with dementia. Providing an understanding of the cognitive, communicative and physical abilities of people with dementia, it shows what chaplains, clergy and lay persons can do to engage with them through worship.
