Epiphanies: Small miracles in everyday experiences of dementia

Dorothy Zubrick

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article approaches experiences of dementia from the perspective
of key Quaker Testimonies, Quaker faith and practice. It is
framed around five dimensions: the practice of reflection, the peace
of silent worship, guidance of the Spirit, respect for “that of God
in everyone,” and the mystery of faith. Each dimension includes
contributions from persons with dementia and care partners. The
stories illustrate times when individuals broke step with the old,
made space for the new, reached for and experienced hope.
