We will soon be have a new look.  You can preview the new style. Please click this link: CenterForBoldAction.org

See materials that can transform the spiritual care of persons who have Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia or cognitive limitation.

These innovative materials:

are easy to use by any care giver

have been shown by rigorous research to be effective with Alzheimer's and other dementia patients

apply proven multi-sensory methods developed by Dr. Maria Montessori to stimulate alert cognition

present well-loved, familiar, joyful Christian scripture, stories, and principles

stimulate spiritual alertness and pleasure through touch, sight, sound, and aroma 

 

Alzheimer's and dementia patients receive wonderful outcomes:

five times as much alertness and pleasure in response to this style of presentation compared with the traditional "talk to only" style, as shown by rigorous empirical research

comfort by their heightened spiritual connection, despite Alzheimer's disease or other dementia or impairment

friends or pastoral care givers visit more often because their spiritual care is visibly meaningful
