My Faith Matters is a resource that has been developed to support people living with dementia to maintain, reconnect with, and explore what brings meaning to their life. Whether it is reading the Psalms aloud; sitting in the sunshine watching the world go by; meeting with friends or celebrating with family – there are many things that together add up to a person’s spiritual wellbeing. My Faith Matters is about recording and celebrating what’s unique to each person, so that others can understand that too.
As a person’s dementia develops they may be less able to communicate what matters to them, which can be upsetting and isolating, both for that person and their friends and family. My Faith Matters is designed to help the person record what’s important to them, so that they can share that with their support network, church or faith community.
