Montessori Memory Care
Montessori-Based Dementia Programming®
Montessori Based Dementia Programming is a researched based method of expanding the world for adults with memory challenges based on the work of Maria Montessori, a world renowned educator. Utilizing Montessori’s methods of education, Dr. Cameron Camp, has created Montessori Based Dementia Programming, an alternative approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care, which LifeHOUSE is proud to offer at LifeHOUSE Whispering Woods.
This revolutionary method of care and treatment of this disease state has provided a useful spring-board for enhancing the lives of residents with memory deficits, providing them with humanizing and social roles which re-enliven a sense of purpose in their daily routines. Research has shown that persons participating in Montessori activities tend to be more engaged with their environment and exhibit fewer signs of depression, anxiety, and agitation. This positive approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia care is a source of creativity and comfort to residents with dementia, caregivers and families alike.
