Caring for Our Loved Ones with Alzheimer’s or Dementia

Sabbath Hour Campus Events
 Rev. Dr. Jade Angelica

5:59 pm


Location: Wilson Chapel

Contact: If you have questions, please contact Jeff Jones, Director of Ministry Studies, at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

On Monday evening, Oct. 20, from 6-9 p.m. there will be an open session of Brita Gill-Austern’s course “Pastoral Care and Counseling on the Edge: Fostering Resiliency in Crisis and Trauma.” The Rev. Dr. Jade Angelica, Director of Healing Moments Alzheimer’s Ministry, will lead this workshop on “Meeting the Mystery of Alzheimer’s: Communicating, Connecting and Caring.”

imageThrough presentation, experiential exercises, and reflection, participants will learn creative, effective methods for communicating and connecting with and caring for persons with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Combining information about dementia with methods of improvisation, this spirited and artful presentation is designed to deepen our awareness of the value of persons with Alzheimer’s and dementia, increase understanding of their limits and needs, and improve the delivery of their care.

There is no registration fee for this workshop, which draws its content from Angelica’s book Where Two Worlds Touch: A Spiritual Journey Through Alzheimer’s Disease. The book is developed from the author’s DMin thesis, written at Andover Newton.

The workshop will be in Wilson Chapel, followed by a book signing for Jade new book,  Where Two Worlds Touch: A Spiritual Journey Through Alzheimer’s Disease., and reception.

Participants are eligible to receive three Sabbath Hours. Further information about Sabbath Hour is available at
