Full Description


In this volume, Eileen Shamy 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. She provides guidelines for pastoral visits to people with dementia, showing how to empathise with, understand and support individuals during a visit. Emphasizing the importance of retaining dignity and freedom of choice for people with dementia, Shamy also presents practical advice about memory cueing and leading worship for those with dementia.
