Much like the woman reaching out to touch the hem of Christ, believing she will be healed if she simply touches His garment, so too are those living with dementia reaching out to you and me. I have long since dreamt of finding a way to reach back out to these individuals in a new way. It will take a visionary and creative approach to shift the current narrative, to reach back out and to help heal. We learn through the beauty of art. We connect through our shared stories. We find the hem of Christ in one another.
“It is not by sidestepping or fleeing from suffering that we are heard, but rather by our capacity for accepting it, maturing through it and finding meaning through union with Christ, who suffered with infinite love.” – Pope Benedict XVI Spe Salve, No. 37
