Why Faith for life?

Faith endures through every season of life, including for people living with dementia. Faith for life acknowledges the profound dignity of the person with dementia, their desire to express and explore faith while also recognising changing needs. Using simple, uncluttered design and familiar and much-loved references, the Faith for life suite of resources enables engagement with the Bible and Christian practice, supporting ongoing spiritual growth.
