Pastor Curt Seefeldt, Director of Church Relations for The Lutheran Home Association will facilitate discussion on Alzheimer’s diagnosis, treatment options, answers to spiritual questions and family care.

There is no charge for the event, but a free will offering will be gathered.

Rev. Curt Seefeldt has written “It’s Alzheimer’s”—It’s Time for Extraordinary Love, published by The Lutheran Home Association (TLHA). Written in everyday language, this booklet provides useful tips to help individuals understand how the disease progresses, how family and friends can provide quality care, how to approach the necessary legal and financial adjustments and reassurance from God’s Word.

A Bible Study and Leader’s Guide is also available for congregational and individual use. In addition, TLHA offers a DVD produced by AboutAlzOrg in partnership with Alliance for Aging Research that describes the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
