Peace With Dementia Rosary: Education, Intentions, Community is a work of non-fiction with Christian themes, penned by author Matthew Estrade. Designed specifically to offer advice and guidance to those suffering from dementia, and those who care for them, this prayer-centered approach is based on the life experiences of the author when witnessing his mother care for his grandfather. The work acknowledges the many forms which dementia can take and its causes and symptoms, drawing parallels with the Mysteries of the Holy Rosary and offering specific prayers which can help readers to overcome particular challenges that the condition brings. Alongside this, the author discusses his community outreach in local and online spheres to bring Peace With Dementia ideas to the globe.

Author Matthew Estrade leads a crusade of peace and positivity towards those who suffer from dementia and their regular care workers, bringing solace and peaceful ideas where he goes. I liked this book for its candid honesty, but also its thorough consideration that every case is different, and that a wide variety of examples, prayers, and stories may be needed for each person to find their own peace and solace with their condition. When dealing with irreversible and degenerative conditions, Estrade writes with great compassion, clarity and a calm sense of personal understanding that I feel will put readers at ease. More than this, the organization of Peace With Dementia Rosary leads readers through different stages of coming to terms with the condition before they are ready to interact with others.
