With contributions from Dr Jennifer Bute, a psychogeriatric nurse, Janet Jacob, and author and cognitive behavioural therapist Louise Morse, the newly-revised Visiting a Person with Dementia is designed to help friends and family spend happy and positive time with their loved ones.
Relatives and friends often shy away from visiting people with dementia because the normal ground rules don’t apply, and they don’t know how to communicate effectively. Yet like most things, it’s not difficult when you know how. This booklet was written to help you know how to prepare to visit and how to bless people with dementia.
God designed people to build one another up; to be His hands and voice. People with dementia need people. Even if they forget who you are, even if there is no conversation, only the touch of a hand, they will know they have been touched.
