The Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® provides a person-centered care approach through all levels of care systems. Our passion is engaging persons living with dementia in meaningful activity, and creating a community of persons who care for each other and are connected to the outside world. We will discuss the implications of this based on various cultures across the world. This approach is the most effective way of reducing responsive behaviors, and results in substantial reduction in the use of psychotropic medications, hypnotics, etc. In essence, it is a way of living which we call the Montessori Inspired Lifestyle®. Though this method initially was developed as an educational system for children, this approach is beneficial for all persons. When applied as a management approach to care partners, it provides a positive work environment, increased autonomy, and high levels of employee engagement. These in turn result in reduced staff turnover, increased longevity, and better communication. Click here to view the full agenda and register.
