An estimated 5.8 million Americans age 65+ are currently living with Alzheimer’s dementia, increasingly impacting individuals, caregivers, families and parish communities. Please join us for a special session Thursday, January 21, at 10 a.m, “We are because God sustains us in God’s memory: A pastoral response to dementia,” co-presented by Maggie Rousseau, M.Ed., Director of Disabilities Ministry, and Mary Cohen, MPH, Associate Director of Senior Adult Ministry.
We will share some information about the nature of Alzheimer’s and other dementias and offer suggestions for ministerial practice. We will also invite reflection, comments and questions from our attendees to further our collective understanding. See promotional graphic here.
