Where Two Worlds Touch

Book: Where Two Worlds Touch
Book: Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People

Dear Friends:

Where Two Worlds Touch is a wonderful new book by Rev. Dr. Jade C. Angelica about caregiving for people with dementia. She is the world's expert in communicating with people who are deeply forgetful. I was very grateful to be asked to write a foreword for this book. It links very well with my own book, Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People.

Coming October 29, 2024

A stunning 10th anniversary edition of Jade C. Angelica's beloved memoir and pastoral guide for those who love someone with Alzheimer's. With a new foreword by acclaimed researcher and bestselling author Dr. Stephen G. Post.

In 2001, Jade C. Angelica's mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and thus began a surprising and transformative journey for both mother and daughter. From the early stages of the disease until her mother died, Angelica was dedicated to her mother's care. In that time she learned about grief, relationship, the nature of selfhood, and the unexpected blessings of Alzheimer's disease. She also found a purpose and embarked on her life's work - to teach that people with Alzheimer's can have meaningful lives, relationships, joy, and growth. Where Two Worlds Touch is both a memoir and a pastoral guide for those who love someone with Alzheimer's. It offers heartfelt wisdom on preserving connection, self-care, and staying open to the possibility of grace.

In this updated 10th anniversary edition of her beloved book, Angelica adds more learnings from her years in Alzheimer's ministry and important discoveries from the world of science. She draws on interfaith theological and spiritual resources, historical information, medical research, social context, and practical know-how from professional and family caregivers, as well as her own life's story to provide a life-changing resource for those who need its gifts.

Jade C. Angelica is the founder and director of the Healing Moments Alzheimer's Ministry and leads workshops, worship services, and trainings around the country. She holds a master of divinity degree from Harvard Divinity School, a certificate from the Shalem Institute Spiritual Guidance Program, and a doctor of ministry degree in Faith, Health and Spirituality from Andover Newton Theological School. Her writing has appeared in The Journal of Pastoral Care & Counseling, Presence, The World, The National Catholic Reporter, The Huffington Post, Alzheimer's & Dementia, and The Journal of Religion, Spirituality & Aging.
