Walking On Holy Ground With Persons Suffering From The Alzheimer’s Disease explores the sacredness of the Alzheimer’s patients as well as draws the attention of clergy and laymen alike to acknowledge the sanctity of ministering to those suffering with the Alzheimer's disease. It is important to recognize the sacredness of ‘man’ and as such to value his human dignity. We must respect and revere everyone we encounter daily, irrespective of health conditions and their caste, color or creed. This maxim of reverencing the sacredness in all persons is the crux of this book. This book will help you to minister fruitfully to the Alzheimer’s patients and to address their yearning for God and simultaneously provide them with spiritual sustenance. This book will undergird the prevalent traditional cognitive pastoral care ministry and help to appropriately meet the spiritual need of these non-cognitive patients.

Today we are in a healthcare crisis. All around the industrialized world people are struggling with declining health. From childhood obesity to the multiple health-related needs and concerns of an aging population, millions need help understanding, managing, or even reversing their maladies. Hospitals are essential of course, but most are set up for episodic care, not long-term disease management or continuous health improvement. So healthcare organizations, civic leaders, church leaders, and philanthropic groups wonder what can be done to help. In this timely publication, authors Stephanie Lind of Florida Hospital and Dr. Susan Chase of the University of Central Florida share important insights and ideas based on a three-year pilot project involving Faith Community Nurses. Conducted in five Central Florida churches, the pilot sought to help congregations establish or grow an existing health ministry team. The work was accomplished through a partnership between Florida Hospital and the Winter Park Health Foundation. In these pages you’ll discover the project goals, the methodology and processes used, and how others can take what was learned and do something similar—or better. The project described in this report was one among many of Florida Hospital’s ongoing efforts to help people understand how practicing the fundamentals of whole-person health aids in the prevention of disease and in recovery following an illness. I believe the authors have done a remarkable job of demonstrating how hospitals, churches, and Faith Community Nurses can positively affect the health of entire communities, playing a part in transforming our healthcare crisis into a health caring opportunity.

Compassion in Healthcare gives an account of the nature and content of compassion and its role in healthcare. While compassion appears to be a straightforward aspect of life and practice, Hordern's analysis shows that it is plagued by both conceptual and practical ills, and stands in need of some quite specific kinds of therapy. Starting from a diagnosis of what precisely is wrong with 'compassion'—its debilitating political entanglements, the vagueness of its meaning, and the risk of burnout it threatens—three therapies are prescribed for these ills: an understanding of patients and healthcare workers as those who pass through the life-course, encountering each other as wayfarers and pilgrims; a grasp of the nature of compassion in healthcare; and an embedding of healthcare within the realities of civic life. Applying these therapeutic strategies uncovers how compassionate relationships acquire their content in healthcare practice. The form that compassion takes is shown to depend on how doctrines of time, tragedy, salvation, responsibility, fault, and theodicy make a difference to the quality of people's lives and relationships. Drawing on the author's real-world collaborations, the way in which compassion matters to practice and policy is worked out in the detail of healthcare professionalism, marketization, and technology. Covering everything from conception to old age, and from machine learning to religious diversity, Compassion in Healthcare draws on philosophy, theology, and everyday experience to expand our understanding of what compassion means for healthcare practice.

Author: Brittany Gibbons
Told through a series of larger-than-life snapshots, a hilarious memoir in essays about love, sex, marriage, motherhood, bikinis, and loving your body, no matter what size you are from the acclaimed blogger and body image advocate. Brittany Gibbons has been a plus size her whole life. But instead of hiding herself in the shadows of thinner women, Brittany became a wildly popular blogger and national spokesmodel—known for stripping on stage at TedX and standing in Times Square in a bikini on national television, and making skinny people everywhere uncomfortable. Talking honestly about size and body image on her popular blog, brittanyherself.com, she has ignited a national conversation. Now in her first book, she shares hilarious and painfully true stories about her life as a weird overweight girl growing up in rural Ohio, struggling with dating and relationships, giving the middle finger to dieting, finding love with a man smaller than her, accidentally having three kids, and figuring out the secret to loving her curves and becoming a nationally recognized body image advocate. And there’s sex, lots of it! Fat Girl Walking isn’t a diet book. It isn’t one of those former fat people memoirs about how someone battled, and won, in the fight against fat. Brittany doesn’t lose all the weight and reveal the happy, skinny girl that’s been hiding inside her. Instead, she reminds us that being chubby doesn’t mean you’ll end up alone, unhappy, or the subject of a cable medical show. What’s important is learning to love your shape. With her infectious humor and soul-baring honesty, Fat Girl Walking reveals a life full of the same heartbreak, joy, oddity, awkwardness, and wonder as anyone else’s. Just with better snacks.
