This is a resource for reflection on the nature of dementia, particularly its spiritual dimension and the implications of that for Churches and other faith groups. Here is a long overdue resource for reflection on the nature of dementia, particularly its spiritual dimension and the implications for Churches and other faith groups. A practical focus offers not only a critique of areas for future research and development in the field of dementia, but also directs the reader to further resources. The Leveson Centre brings together for study, reflection and the exchange of ideas and information those who believe that older people should not be considered passive recipients of care, but as valued and cherished members of society, who can inform and enrich the lives of others. In particular the Center is developing an understanding of spirituality as lived by older people and aims to support them to express their spiritual awareness. Contributions from distinguished and experienced practitioners in the front line of dementia research and care are here given a context and an overview by the Director of the Foundation, to provide a resource for reflection and practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reviewed in the Baptist Times 17th September (UK)'I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking a greater understanding on caring either personally or pastorally with someone who has dementia.'
'[This book] should be mandatory reading for all entering ministry or providing pastoral care for the elderly.' Church Times, 23rd July, 2010
Reviewed in the Baptist Times 17th September (UK) 'I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is seeking a greater understanding on caring either personally or pastorally with someone who has dementia.'
Between Remembering and Forgetting almost made me weep. It is a clarion call to everyone concerned to recognise that people with dementia, from its mildest to its most severe forms, can still communicate, still have spiritual longings, and that we can reach them, with our imagination and their help. Everyone who looks after, or is concerned with policy around the care for, people with dementia needs to read these glorious and humbling essays and learn from them.--Sanford Lakoff
As we enjoy longer life expectancy, dementia becomes an increasingly significant and fearful challenge to the quality of our life. This collection of essays invites us to consider dementia from a variety of perspectives. It is a clear and compassionate plea for us to work together to improve our thinking and action. --Sanford Lakoff
I am grateful for this accessible, informative and educative book, and for its challenging, encouraging and humane tone. At its heart is the insistent call that we affirm the dignity of every "person" suffering dementia. It helps us to explore in depth the nature, the content and the context of good care. I hope it will be widely read.--Sanford Lakoff
'This is an excellent introduction to an illness which now affects a quarter of those over 85... The chapter by Dr Adrian Treloar...is especially helpful.'--Sanford Lakoff
