Thinking of You

Full Product Description

An invaluable resource for anyone seeking to look after those suffering with dementia. Whether as a carer, church leader, friend or family member, this meaningful book will give you the world to bless and care in a spiritually uplifting way. It also serves as a practical guide for the trickier, or more day-to-day, aspects of dementia. 

This book approaches dementia from a number of angles: biological, psychological, sociological, and theological.

After an introduction explaining the multifaceted nature of this set of conditions, some possible theological responses are offered to such questions as: what is the nature of human identity?

How can someone with severely impaired cognition have a full spiritual life? The book's final two sections are predominantly practical, addressing the spiritual care of the affected individual and how to help churches support affected individuals and their carers.

This final section includes resources for ministry in residential care homes.

Thinking of You by Joanna Collicutt was published by BRF (The Bible Reading Fellowship) in March 2017 and is our 35979th best seller. The ISBN for Thinking of You is 9780857464910.
