This video is by our friend Daphne Johnston at Respite For All Foundation. After working 15 years as an executive director in senior living administration, Daphne Johnston was happy to step into the non-profit world of the faith community. She was asked to develop a volunteer model to provide support for families living with dementia in Montgomery, Alabama, by her senior pastor, Dr. Lawson Bryan in 2012. Together, the two quickly learned a volunteer ministry could galvanize a community and change the culture of how we live among our friends with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
