“Creator God, Give me the courage to lay my problems before someone who can help me. Take away the fear that they will judge me. Grant me the courage to make the changes I need to be whole again. Let me trust in the support of those who want to heal me. Walk beside me through the difficult path of change. Walk beside me. I cannot do it alone.”
When faced with human suffering, whether as a caregiver, family, friend, or part of the caring community, it’s important to have the right words when words seem so inadequate. In these two books, you will find a wealth of information, support, and advice for finding the words to help people cope with depression and dementia in those they love. Each passage concludes with a suggested prayer, designed for adaptation and personalization, so that each encounter will be as unique and individual as the people in need.
