My name is Elizabeth Shulman, and I help to empower spouses who are caring for a husband or wife with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. I also work with churches to train them to provide stronger support for these spouses in their community.
Welcome to my site.
Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's is the only Bible study specifically designed to help churches provide support to now the largest group of dementia caregivers - spouses.* Experiencing scripture through the lens of personal stories, participants get to "walk in the shoes" of husbands and wives caring for a spouse with dementia. The result is a greater understanding of the caregiver's role and a deeper empathy upon which an effective ministry can be built. Whether you are a pastor looking for resources or a spouse knee-deep in caregiving, Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimer's will offer guidance for your journey. To find out more about this powerful, one-of-a-kind ministry, go to www.sanctuaryinthemidst.com
