“People with Alzheimer’s aren’t dumb, they just have trouble remembering!” Anna Ruth Williamson, Alzheimer patient since 2004. The devotions in Beautiful in Each Season were written with respect for the intellect and spirits of those with dementia. The readings are straightforward but not childish in content, and are appropriate for independent or caregiver supported use. Because music transcends language and speaks directly to the heart, a few lines from familiar hymns are included with each devotion. Many of the conflicts that arise between people with dementia and their caregivers occur because two completely different perspectives must come together in order for harmony to exist. When the patient is a loved one, the caregiver faces not only an increased workload, but also new financial worries and the loss of emotional support as the relationship of the past is redefined. On the patient’s part, dementia has narrowed perceptions to the degree that there is little awareness or empathy for the struggles of the caregiver. The confusion and disorientation of cognitive dysfunction may result in suspicion and fear-based anger. When both patient and caregiver know and love the Lord, reminders of His steadfast love provide a common ground through which empathy and love can flow. This book can be used either alone or in tandem with the caregivers’ devotional, My Mom Has Alzheimer’s: Inspiration and Help for Caregivers (Bridge-Logos Foundation, 2009). “As caregivers we must not allow our loved ones to forget God’s love.” Linda Born

About the Author:

Linda A. Born worked for twenty-two years as a first grade teacher, and implemented a special program for children with reading challenges. She is a farm wife, and is the primary caregiver for her mother, who has dementia. Linda's first book, My Mom Has Alzheimer's, provides empathy and support for caregivers and families of those who require care. Her novel, The Children Are Tender, is a rollicking account of a young woman's first year of teaching in the lovable but eccentric community of Karola, Kansas. Linda has recently published a devotional written especially for dementia patients, entitled Beautiful in Each Season.

Review:

These are touching, easy to grasp devotions, written for my grandmother, who has Alzheimer's. I read through the book myself, and even though I am a 34-year-old mom of two young children, the readings blessed my heart as well. I highly recommend it, especially for those who need grace to accept help from their caregivers for daily living tasks.
--Melinda Rausch
