Publisher's Summary

A diagnosis of dementia in a loved one can be both frightening and frustrating. Only a biblical foundation fuels a Christian response that both honors the patient and glorifies God. Drawing on years of professional experience working with Alzheimer's patients, Dr. John Dunlop wants to transform the way we think about dementia. Rooting his vision of care in the inherent dignity that stems from the fact that all people are made in the image of God, he explains biblical principles, describes the experience of dementia, and answers common questions about the condition. With a plan for how to care for patients with compassion and respect, this book helps caregivers, family members, and anyone else affected by dementia honor God as they improve the quality of care to patients.

Various aspects of Dementia are explained well.

The author covers this topic well and makes it interesting too. He is very knowledgeable and caring. There is much to be learned and applied from this book. I think some of the caregiving ideas will also apply to other illnesses. (I am a nurse's aide and work with Dementia patients.)

Suffering through dementia care while honoring God

Although this book can't cover every detail or checklist that may be necessary for the many decisions that come with dementia care, Dr. Dunlop provides an excellent biblical foundation to prepare the patient and caregivers spiritually. Along with practical advice drawn from the author's many years of medical and personal experience, I learned a lot about getting the right perspective on what it means to enter this valley of individual and family suffering and I now feel better prepared for the decisions ahead.

A good Christian take on the issue of dementia

Because of the lack of resources addressing this issue from a Christian point of view, I would recommend to Christian Boomers who are in that phase of life where caregiving is becoming a reality.
