Montessori Style Dementia Engagement

Montessori Style Dementia Engagement

Montessori-style dementia engagement emphasizes individualized, meaningful activities tailored to each person's abilities and interests. By focusing on tasks that promote independence and purpose, such as sorting, crafting, or gardening, this approach fosters a sense of accomplishment and boosts self-esteem. It encourages cognitive stimulation, social interaction, and sensory experiences, enhancing overall well-being and quality of life for individuals with dementia. This person-centered approach promotes a sense of dignity, autonomy, and engagement, enriching their daily lives.

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.

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.
