To be diagnosed with dementia is "e;like being blindfolded and let loose in a maze"e;. There is no clear treatment to follow, because each case is unique. But once thickets of misunderstanding and misinformation are brushed aside, there are pathways to hope. "e;Secular models of support don't adequately reflect Christian values of compassion, love and service,"e; explains Louise Morse. "e;Neither do they describe the power of spiritual support. This is key to the wellbeing of the caregiver, as well as the person with dementia."e; This book is packed with examples of what works, as well as practical advice and accessible medical information. Louise Morse is a cognitive behavioural therapist and works with a national charity whose clients include people with dementia. Her MA dissertation, based on hundreds of interviews, examined the effects on families of caring for a loved one with dementia.
