Supporting those living with memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease and their families and friends.
The spiritual needs of people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are often overlooked, which can cause spiritual distress. Spiritual care is essential for individuals living with memory loss and for their families and friends. There is no evidence that spiritual needs are lessened for people living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Spiritual and social connectedness is key to our overall well-being.
The basic needs for those living with dementia are no different than anyone else. Feeling respected and valued, feeling understood, living with a sense of purpose, dignity, self-worth, and being appreciated as a person are needs we all experience. Our Memory Ministry embraces and supports the whole family who is living with the challenges that dementia and Alzheimer’s disease may bring. For more information, please contact Vicky Pitner.
