Summary
In this sensitive and informative book, Eileen Shamy, a pioneer of ministry to people with Alzheimer's disease, discusses how pastoral work can help to develop holistic care for those suffering from dementia and related conditions - care which involves understanding of their spiritual as well as physical needs. From her years of experience as a clergywoman working with older people in care settings, the author provides guidelines for pastoral visits to people with dementia, showing how to empathise with, understand and support individuals during a visit. She discusses what constitutes spiritual well-being in individuals and suggests ways in which this can be nurtured. Emphasising the importance of retaining dignity and freedom of choice for people with dementia, she also presents practical advice about memory cueing and leading worship for those with dementia. This book is a useful resource for a variety of people involved in pastoral care with older people, whether professionals or volunteers, from a respected author in the field of psychogeriatric care
