More than 5 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s, the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. That translates to over 15.5 million caregivers providing over 17.7 billion hours of unpaid care each year.
So who is ministering to those most impacted by Alzheimer’s? How do we reach out to those who can’t remember who we are? And how do we offer God’s comfort and promise to not only those with the disease, but their weary caregivers?
Dr. Benjamin Mast answers these questions and more in his new book, "Second Forgetting: Remembering the Power of the Gospel during Alzheimer’s Disease."
Dr. Mast joins Denise to discuss his book and his answers.
