The first bible study for dementia caregivers – Religion News Service

Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer’s provides much needed ministry

Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer’s is an easy-to-lead, 5-week Bible study that provides a powerful tool for ministering to caregivers in your congregations while also giving an opportunity for fellow church members to “walk in caregivers’ shoes” and learn ways to most effectively support them.

Recently listed as a #1 New Release on Amazon and available in most Barnes and Noble stores, Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer’s is a simple, yet effective way to minister to caregivers in churches, retirement communities, senior centers and dementia support groups.
