Workshop (Bloomfield, USA)

Montessori for Ageing and Dementia is an innovative approach to dementia care that can be adopted for individuals or groups as a philosophy of care. The goal of the Montessori program is to support people living with dementia by creating a prepared environment, filled with cues and memory supports, that enables individuals to care for themselves, others, and their community.

The Montessori approach enhances quality of life for people living with dementia by creating an environment in which they can succeed. Roles, routines and activities are developed for each individual, which are meaningful to that person – giving each person the opportunity to enjoy an enriched life. Individuals living in a Montessori community do as much for themselves and others as possible, rather than having things done to them or for them.

Attend this 12hr workshop and learn to create meaningful activities and roles by:

  • Focusing on the person, not the dementia.
  • Matching strengths and abilities with personal history.
  • Fostering social connections and friendships.
  • Developing routines that build confidence and self-esteem.
  • Providing cues, prompts, materials and templates to support the person’s memory loss.
