Grace for the Unexpected Journey: A 60-Day Devotional for Alzheimer’s and Other Dementia Caregivers
Guest: Debbie Barr – As a health educator with a deep concern and compassion for dementia caregivers, Debbie saw their need for faith-based encouragement. With compassion and understanding she uses Scriptures to address their practical hardships and spiritual concerns. Caregivers walk a long, difficult road. This devotional gives grace for their journey.
Caregiver, your burden is unique. As you care for a loved one with dementia, you face both spiritual and practical challenges others can’t imagine. That’s why Grace for the Unexpected Journey was written—to minister to caregiver-specific needs. Each short devotion brings you encouragement from Scripture as well as practical advice from fellow travelers who’ve been where you are. For a few minutes a day, find reprieve. Lay aside your burdens, feel a little less alone, and discover how you, too, can cultivate grace for the winding road ahead.
For the weary dementia or Alzheimer’s caregiver. If you are a caregiver to someone with Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia, you carry a heavy load. On top of having to watch someone you love suffer, you are probably losing sleep, growing frustrated, and struggling with loneliness or even depression. With little to no help and no time for a break, this unrelenting stress is hard to carry.
Whether that’s you or someone you know, the caregiver needs care, too. Grace for the Unexpected Journey: A 60-Day Devotional for Alzheimer’s and Other Dementia Caregivers provides that support. Read more: https://goo.gl/LJuNLu
