Denial, embarrassment, the decision to tell others, and additional issues-some that feel too private to share- can have a significant impact on the marriage. Spouses often look to their church for emotional, physical, and spiritual support- however, research shows that most churches are not well-equipped to minister to those caring for a spouse with Alzheimers. Sanctuary in the Midst of Alzheimers is a resource for both spouses and their churches, encouraging congregations to walk in the shoes of a spousal caregiver while providing the opportunity for spouses to find meaning and a sense of peace in their role as a caregiver.
