Have now received my copy of our book “Dementia-Friendly Worship:
A MultiFaith Handbook for Chaplains, Clergy, and Faith Communities”.
This book is designed to give practical help to faith leaders,
in developing services and creating dementia-friendly faith communities.
i am one of 45 authors included in this book.
My chapter, “Anchor Me”, is included in Section 2:
“Voices of Persons Living with Dementia”.
This section includes authors
Rev. Dr Cynthia Huling Hummel,
The book has a wonderful intro by Daniel C. Potts, MD .
Unfortunately my reading comprehension is not up to understanding much of the book,
(including my own chapter)
but i am pleased to be included in this project.
You might like to share this title with YOUR spiritual Leader;
Full disclosure: This is a project of Faith United Against Alzheimer’s.
As one of the authors, my only remuneration is a free copy of the book,
which i received earlier this month.
Hope to have more family time during the next six weeks, so i may skip some blog weeks.

Teepa Snow’s next video Zoom, “Lets Talk”, open to all persons with dementia, will be held Tuesday July 23. Requires prior registration. Free webinar session for anyone living with dementia who would like to share ideas, concerns, experiences, partner issues or successes. The topics will be determined by the group. Can be kind-of frustrating working with the registration process, but if you get stuck there is a phone number of someone to help. That is what i needed to do, and so glad Teepa Snow provides a helper for this process. >> https://teepasnow.com/services/online-learning/live-public-webinars/webinars-for-plwd/ .
