This article about “soul care” for people with dementia quotes James Ellor, Ph.D., professor and co-director of the doctorate program in the School of Social Work. When Ellor was a chaplain at a Chicago nursing home, he discovered that people with Alzheimer’s might not remember recent events or even recognize their children, but they could remember beloved hymns from their childhoods, and many could recite Bible verses they learned as children.

Houston graduate plans to work with at-risk youth
William Flakes, 35, of Houston celebrated earning his Master of Social Work degree Friday afternoon at Baylor University.

Flakes is among the first cohort of students to graduate from Baylor's online advanced standing social work program in Houston.

He said he plans to start a non-profit for kids in his hometown of Houston.

"I never would've imagined a person from where I'm from would have made it to a place like Baylor but the fact that they took a shot on me I'm so grateful for that," he said.

Flakes grew up Houston's Third Ward community surrounded by violence and drugs.

He said he knew there was much more to life and one day imagined himself mentoring kids.
