Overview

There are currently over 16 million people in the United States providing care to a person with dementia. While caregiving can be very rewarding, many caregivers also experience a significant amount of stress, and they may struggle to find meaning in their role as a caregiver. 

Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's is currently the only Bible study available that addresses the common challenges experienced by caregivers using both carefully selected scripture and personal stories from caregivers. Because each section is self-contained, Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's is not just for churches; it can also be used for personal spiritual exploration or for groups such as senior centers, assisted living facilities, retirement communities, and support groups looking to integrate a spiritual component. With special sections that address the unique caregiving challenges for spouses, adult children and friends who want to learn how to better support caregivers, Finding Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's provides a much-needed resource for the growing population of dementia caregivers in our communities.
