Living a Spiritual Life with
Alzheimer's Disease

—› Spirituality can be a search for meaning, values, and purpose in life. For the person with
dementia, a variety of important human capacities remain richly intact, including their emotional,
relational, symbolic, and even spiritual capacities. As family caregivers, we can affirm the
existence of our loved ones no matter how diminished that existence may seem. We know their
life stories, can connect them to memory, and help them rejoin the community. And perhaps,
through daily acts of loving care and attention, we can allow ourselves to be more open to our
own spiritual growth on this journey.

Rev. Sommers is the Pastor at Northminster Presbyterian Church in Troy. She holds a Master of
Divinity degree from Harvard Divinity School and Certificate as a Spiritual Director from San
Francisco Theological Seminary. Rabbi Sleutelberg is the spiritual leader of Congregation Shir
Tikvah in Troy and a graduate of Albion College and the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute
of Religion.
