This site was formerly known as alzheimersministry.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
