Christian responses to 21st Century demographics

CHRISTIAN RESPONSES TO 21st CENTURY DEMOGRAPHICS

As life expectancy increases, there are new challenges for us as Christians. Growing Old Grace-fully seeks to provide opportunities to explore these in a safe and supportive environment

LEEDS IS BECOMING A DEMENTIA FRIENDLY DIOCESE

Amongst the thousands of people who attend our church services each week, there are a significant numbers of people living with dementia and their carers. We have formed a Working Group to help develop a Diocesan Action Plan.

FACING THE LOSSES OF LATER LIFE

As we live longer and grow older we can find that our life is constricted in various ways. How do we approach this positively? How do we prepare to face our own death?

Getting Along Seminars for Couples, Leeds WYP @ West Yorkshire Playhouse
Mar 20 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Getting Along programme addresses the change in relationships between couples where one partner has been diagnosed with a dementia. Through 4 group seminars over 2 days,  some of the difficulties that arise (tensions, silly, draining arguments – or even blazing rows!) will be addressed. Often they are caused by the presence of a dementia and they are nobody’s fault, but when you have perhaps lived with each other for decades it must be hard to get used to!
