Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the comfort of your home or office!

If you are looking for ways to transform your elder care community to an environment of joy and purpose, you’ve come to the right place! We’ll show you how to create an environment where older adults can flourish!

Montessori for Aging and Dementia

During this workshop you will:

  • Discover a powerful approach to dementia care that will totally change your perspective on aging and dementia
  • Learn the first thing you should do to create a sense of community between staff and residents
  • See how an engaging life enrichment program transforms the culture of a long-term care center and ultimately frees up staff time dramatically
  • Learn the process for changing a ho-hum activity program into a dynamic and engaging person-centered program that keeps people interested and has them coming back for more
  • Be able to implement a simple tool for helping people with cognitive impairment participate in meaningful conversations
  • Identify the mistakes almost everyone unknowingly makes in wayfinding and signage, leading to confusion and discord — and find out how to correct them
  • Develop the skills to effectively communicate with people with dementia, so they easily understand what you are trying to convey

You will learn about Montessori for Aging and Dementia, an innovative approach to care which enables individuals to care for themselves, others, and their community — bringing purpose and meaning to elders’ lives and increasing staff satisfaction significantly.
