A vision is unfolded of the integration of people with dementia and their relatives. The argument is for the respect of the particular and thereby overcomes concepts of integration that either mean total inclusion or total separation. The article explores both the challenge and chance for the church that answer Jesus’ call for inclusion. Of particular importance is the sacramental dimension of faith; as in the Christian tradition, sacraments serve as symbolic bridges between the spiritual and the material that is conceivable by people with dementia.
