AN innovative and easy approach on how to manage a person with dementia and guide them into a quality life of care and recreation

Montessori Methods for Dementia™ are based on the educational principles and practices of renowned Italian physician and childhood educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. The program developed By Gail Eliot, B.A.Sc., M.A., Gerontologist and Dementia Specialist. The program results in a giant leap forward in maintaining or enhancing an individual’s abilities, improving self-esteem, and reducing or eliminating responsive behaviors. By supporting the person and the environment, Montessori Methods for Dementia™ improve the quality of life of both those living with dementia and their care providers.The philosophy of the Montessori Methods for Dementia™ is to encourage independence for as long as possible, offer choices, and treat people with respect and dignity.Montessori Methods for Dementia™ look at the person behind the dementia.By taking into consideration an individual’s interests, needs, skills and abilities and introducing meaningful and purposeful activities, we have enjoyed tremendous success reconnecting with people who may have otherwise seemed unreachable. Montessori programming incorporates activities related to daily living, stimulation for dementia, cognitive abilities and encourages cultural and social connection.Understanding and implementing those methods would benefit our graduates with knowledge and understanding the challenges of dealing with Dementia sufferers.(“This program does not require approval under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005”)
