Regular listeners will remember that this podcast started because I sought better engagement methods with my Mom. Thankfully, we know better ways to help keep our loved ones active, engaged, and happy. Montessori engagement creates an environment filled with cues and memory support that is explicitly designed to enable individuals to care for themselves.
Using the Montessori methods, generally associated with teaching children, people living with dementia can learn to shop and prepare their meals in a minimally controlled environment. Some residents of care homes are engaged in meaningful, daily activities based on individual capacities and choice.
In this episode, I talk to one of the leading Montessori-style dementia engagement trainers, Cameron Camp. His stories and advice will inspire you and instruct you on using these methods with your family. Applying these techniques will give you both a higher quality of life.
