Title: I'm Still Here: Montessori-Based Activities for Persons with Dementia
When: March 7-9, 2011
Description: This course focuses on an innovative method of working with persons living with cognitive impairments based on the educational philosophies of famed childhood educator Maria Montessori. This methodology has been researched for over 15 years by Dr. Cameron Camp, of Hearthstone Alzheimer Care, and has been shown to significantly increase levels of engagement, participation, satisfaction, success and quality of life for persons living with dementia. Participants in this course will learn the fundamental principles of this methodology, in addition to the application of these principles using real-life examples drawn from their use at Hearthstone's treatment residences.
