Alzheimer's and our Church Community

Good people of West Parish,


Alzheimer's or dementia has touched nearly all of us, whether through a loved one or friend or church member. 


Perhaps we have been a caregiver for someone with memory issues.  Perhaps we have tried to support a caregivers.  Perhaps we've simply encountered folks with Alzheimer's or dementia in church or community gatherings, and haven't been sure how to interact with them.  It can be challenging for everyone involved!


I am grateful to our own Ruby Easton, who will share her journey after church this Sunday.   If someone you love is struggling with memory issues, or you'd like to learn more, or you'd like to see how we as a church community can respond, please join us!


And may these glorious fall days of radiant color surround us all with grace and joy!


Blessings -


Katrina
