The statistics for caregivers and their subsequent health problems are alarming. Caregivers need assistance and they often turn to their church for help and assistance. However, with declining numbers of volunteers and lowered church attendance the Church hasn’t been able to provide many of the services that the community needs. Also, up to this time, the churches have not been skilled at teaching and caring for persons with dementia. Many churches are now interested in learning how to care for the elderly and persons with dementia and have begun to seek training for their members. We now have pilot programs underway to teach these skills to church staff and volunteers.
