Lighting the Way: Spiritual and Religious Care for those with Dementia

Lighting the Way: Spiritual and Religious Care for those with Dementia

Patricia Higgins and Richard Allen
Leveson Paper 16

Are you involved in worship with people with dementia in a care home, a day hospital or in a local church setting?  Why not buy a copy of this invaluable, comprehensive and well written booklet which is full of common sense and gives a reading, hymn or song and ideas for a time of reflection for every week of the year following the Revised Common Lectionary?

An Appendix provides a complete service outline and services for
Christmas, Easter and Harvest

In addition the first section of the booklet reflects on dementia itself and on the pastoral, spiritual and religious needs of people with dementia. It  then sets out a set of principles to be followed when planning a service of worship looking at practical considerations to be taken into account. A short section also considers the application of this philosophy to other faiths.

The Leveson Centre is delighted to publish the second edition of this best seller which is based on the experience the authors gained setting up the Candlelight Group which responds to the spiritual and religious needs of patients with dementia in a day hospital.
