The Church of Ireland’s Church and Society Commission launched a leaflet on the spiritual care of people living with dementia at the Church of Ireland General Synod, in Limerick, on Thursday, 4th May.  The leaflet is also available online at https://www.ireland.anglican.org/resources/435/spiritual-care-in-dementia

Speaking of the launch, the Revd Adrian Dorrian said: “Dementia continues to be an issue that impacts our Churches at every level.  This leaflet provides some useful information for pastors, church visitors and family members.  It’s also a very real sign of the Covenant between the Church of Ireland and the Methodist Church.  We are very grateful for permission to reproduce this material.”
