A Picture Book to share with your patients
NACC is grateful to Sarah Fredricksen, BCC
A hospice chaplain with an idea. An idea to create a book of images to share with her Catholic dementia patients, to bring them the comfort of their faith.
She found an artist and commissioned some drawings for her picture book. Sarah offers her beautiful collection of watercolors to the NACC.
The paintings were created by the artist named above for free use by the NACC chaplains.
There are 12 images which depict some of the most important, and memorable events in Jesus’ life.

NACC Special Webinar: Addressing the Spiritual Needs of Persons with Dementia
In early 2019 NACC member Dr. Debbie Armenta presented a workshop at the NACC national conference entitled Addressing the Spiritual Needs of Persons with Dementia in Parish Ministry. Based on the positive reception to her workshop and the expressed requests by NACC webinar participants for more information about working with dementia patients, at the invitation of the NACC Debbie agreed to present a webinar series that covered the topic in more depth.
