Linda and Jim Abel will  be at Breckenridge’s First United Methodist Church, 419 W. Walker St., on Sunday, Sept. 29, and Linda will present a program on dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease in the Christian Life Center beginning at 12:45 p.m.

Linda Abel worked as a registered nurse in Assisted Living communities for 20 years of her career. She also served alongside her husband, Jim, who is a retired United Methodist Minister and former pastor of First United Methodist Church of Breckenridge.

Linda officially retired in 2016; however, many would say she doesn’t really understand what retirement is about. Since retirement she has served the Texas Assisted Living Association as a trainer for Assisted Living Managers all over the state of Texas.

She is president of Dementia Friendly Fort Worth, an outgrowth of a dementia education ministry of First United Methodist Church Fort Worth.

The organization provides training to people in all walks of life and to organizations of all kinds.  A Dementia Friendly Chapel is held weekly, and a new opportunity for persons with dementia recently began with 5th Street Café: A Dementia Friendly Social Club.

Linda and Jim have been married for 50 years and have two grown sons, two daughters-in-law, and four granddaughters.

The event on Sunday will be open to everyone.
