Memories and More (Memory Loss Care)

This  Renewal Ministry offering is specifically designed for those who care for people with permanent and progressive memory loss, predominantly due to Alzheimer and Dementia.  We offer a unique setting with a support group for the caregivers who look out for their loved one AND at the same time, a gathering for those people who have memory issues.  This second group will be in a setting just a few feet away with volunteers who can keep them engaged, challenged and cared for.


Julie Brown, one of the facilitators of this group, has many years of experience in working with seniors. She recently caring for her husband who suffered from memory loss, before his passing.  This inspired her to pursue a group like this in the community of Christ-followers. There was one in the community, but they were not allowed to speak about spiritual issues and biblical encouragement and concerns. This seemed untenable as she watched her own husband as well as the loved ones of others not being able to speak of or look for strength in a community who considers relationship with Jesus a vital part of walking through this process.


The two meetings will take place in rooms #102 and #103. Experience has shown that there's a limited time a care receiver can be away from those who care for them, so in the beginning, meetings will be only 40- 45 minutes long in order to unite caregivers with care receivers in a timely fashion.
