Using Montessori to Increase Engagement in Life

Posted on October 10, 2018

Live Webinar: Tuesday, December 11th from 1pm – 2pm EST

Hear from Jennifer Brush, MA, CCC/SLP, an award-winning Dementia Educator, author and consultant. Passionate about enriching the lives of people with dementia, Jennifer is on a mission to put the focus of care on the person’s preferences, interests and abilities. She has combined Dr. Montessori’s philosophy of learning and living with what we know about aging and dementia care best practices. It is not a technique, task or intervention. It’s a way of living one’s life to the fullest extent possible. 

Montessori Philosophy: 
Respect the person 
Create a prepared environment 
Observe in order to learn about the person 
Encourage independence 
Provide meaningful work 
Remember that learning and engagement can occur anywhere
