In this episode we discuss conservatorships and specifically how they are used for people with dementia. We cover Nichelle Nichols’ story, the groundbreaking African American actress known for her role in Star Trek. We delve into how people have prayed upon her vulnerability due to her dementia and the debate around her conservatorship.

And we highlight the ACTS 2 Caregiver Project which is a faith-based, skills-building and support program designed to meet the needs of distressed family caregivers of older adults with dementia.

Visit the ACTS 2 Caregiver Project website to learn more about the project, sign up for caregiver sessions, or donate to support their work.
