Overview

We are increasingly aware of the economic and emotional cost of dementia, but its spiritual dimension is often overlooked. Between Remembering and Forgetting brings together contributions from distinguished and experienced practitioners in the front line of dementia research and care to reflect on this, and to explore the implications for Churches and other faith groups, as well as for individual carers. A practical focus offers not only a critique of areas for future research and development in the field of dementia, but also directs the reader to further resources.

The Editor was for ten years Director of The Leveson Centre, which brings together for study, reflection and the exchange of ideas and information those who believe that older people should not be considered passive recipients of care, but as valued and cherished members of society who can inform and enrich the lives of others. In particular the Centre is developing an understanding of spirituality as lived by older people, and aims to support them to express their spiritual awareness.
