Faith Outreach Initiative
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

People facing Alzheimer’s and dementia often turn to their faith communities for emotional and spiritual support. People who have Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, especially those raised in religious households, are uplifted by worship services and visits. They often have the desire to continue to partake in church activities.

Family members also have spiritual needs. Caring for a loved one can last for years, leaving the caregiver weary, isolated, frustrated and depressed. At the same time, they may grieve the many losses of this journey.
The Alzheimer’s Association recognizes the importance of spirituality and has developed programs to partner with congregations providing education and support to their members.
