Note: I've been alerted to what looks to be an exceptionally helpful tool for Alzheimer's caregivers and those who help these caregivers. The "Leader's Guide for Season's of Caregiving" is a product of UsAgainstAlzhiemer's Clergy Network. For full disclosure, I must say that I am honored to be a co-moderator for UsAgainstAlzheimer's. It is volunteer position. I'm passing on this information because I truly believe that the book has the potential to help many readers. Follow through if you feel that the "Leader's Guide" could help you. - Carol
The Leader's Guide for Seasons of Caring, provides structure and guidance for a 10-week support group based on the Seasons of Caring: Meditations for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers. It touches on universal themes, such as personal stories, guilt, self-care and loss with an interfaith approach.
The "Leader's Guide" includes simple, yet powerful guidance for structuring and leading a support group in a variety of community and faith settings. The guide was written by Dr. Richard Morgan, a distinguished founder of UsAgainstAlzheimer's Clergy Network, which supported publication of this volume. This is an important resource for families who are facing Alzheimer's, and those working to support them.
