P 89 Dementia: Pastoral Theology and Pastoral Care

Gentle neglect of people with dementia is not a worthy pastoral strategy for the church—and yet this is often the case in practice.

James Saunders looks at the reasons for this, explores the nature of Christ-like love as portrayed in the gospels, and offers a re-appraisal of what it means to be human in community in the image of God. He concludes with some practical advice on ministry with those suffering from dementia.
