Encouragement and guidance for ministering to those with dementia Millions of Christians suffer from dementia diseases such as Alzheimer's, making ministry to them difficult as they lose memories and the ability to communicate. Drawing on her years of experience as a long-term care chaplain, Kathy Berry provides practical information and tools to equip ministers and lay leaders to meet the spiritual and pastoral needs of those living with dementia. Chapters cover vital topics, including these: Identifying those who may be showing signs of dementia and learning how to support them as they seek a diagnosisCommunicating with dementia patients as their language skills declineMeeting the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of people with dementia--and the needs of their caregiversAn invaluable resource to meet a growing need for congregations around the country, When Words Fail equips readers to answer Christ's call to minister to "the least of these."
