Demenz in Theologie und Seelsorge
[Dementia in Theology and Pastoral Care]
Aims and Scope
Persons with dementia present a challenge for theology and pastoral care. In a dialogue with traditional theological, medical, social psychological, and nursing science approaches, this work develops a practical theological method for describing and counseling persons suffering from dementia. It then elucidates specific forms of appropriate pastoral care for persons with dementia, including religious worship, biography work, bibliodrama, pastoral care for the body, and spiritual care of the dying.
