Acts of Love in Memory

March 16, 2018

My mother, Margaret, died in 1967 after suffering from vascular dementia, and my sister, Patricia, died in 2013 after battling dementia. Since 1967, I have been an active caregiver for people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

I offer pastoral care for residents in our Memory Care and other residents. Since 2008 I have been a facilitator of an Alzheimer’s support group for the community. I co-authored the book No Act of Love Is  Ever Wasted, which has helped many caregivers across the country. In a real sense, these acts of love for persons with dementia and their caregivers have been in memory of my mother and sister, whom I dearly miss.
